MT WASHINGTON AVALANCHE CENTER ANNOUNCES CLOSURE OF CUTLER RIVER DRAINAGE AREA IN TUCKERMAN RAVINE-To address crowding, key sections of Tuckerman Ravine are closed for the season

MT WASHINGTON AVALANCHE CENTER ANNOUNCES CLOSURE OF CUTLER RIVER DRAINAGE AREA IN TUCKERMAN RAVINE-To address crowding, key sections of Tuckerman Ravine are closed for the season

North Conway, NH – In any other year, overflowing parking lots in Pinkham Notch, NH would have been the norm in early spring. After all, when the lifts close, skiers and riders flock to Tuckerman Ravine, one of the most popular backcountry ski destinations in the East. However, this is not a typical year. Ski areas throughout the country are closed, and skiers and riders are flocking earlier and in greater numbers to the well-loved backcountry terrain in Tuckerman Ravine. With stay-at-home orders from New Hampshire Governor Sununu in response to the coronavirus pandemic, members of the U.S. Forest Service’s Mt Washington Avalanche Center were distressed over the weekend to see the number of cars overflowing in the parking areas in Pinkham Notch – the trail head for accessing Tuckerman Ravine. Thus, in an effort to address the inevitable crowds flowing into the popular Tuckerman Ravine area, the Cutler River Drainage Area - including the section extending from Lunch Rocks to the top of the Headwall, where it meets the Alpine Garden Trail - has been closed. The closure includes skiing and riding the Lip and Sluice too. The closure will continue until melt out. Essentially, this eliminates access to skiing and riding in the popular Tuckerman Ravine for the season.
