Turning Back is Not Giving Up

Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, botanist, zoologist, glaciologist, and early advocate for the preservation of America’s wilderness areas, John Muir (1838–1914) is touted as being the “Father of the National Parks.” You are likely already quite familiar with one of his more popular quotes: Namely, “The mountains are calling, and I must go.” This oft-repeated statement helps us relate to the allure of the mountains and […]

Skiing from the Line

About half way up Hillman’s Highway in Tuckerman Ravine, Redline Guide Pat Ferland and his team of four backcountry skiers decided they would ski down from that point. That is where they would draw the line. Hiking up to that point they encountered soft, skiable snow. After that point, however, they found “boiler plate” conditions — meaning the snow above was rock hard, almost like ice, […]

The Sabbaday Snow Globe

First time that venue was chosen — Sabbaday Falls, just off the Kanc — the Florida couple asked for a nice coating of fresh snow. It had been a terrible year for snow, everything was brown, and it was very unlikely their request would be filled, but they absolutely got their wish. It was like a miracle.

Snirt and Snuce

We would go on-and-on, trying to flex our pen, but Mike M. wrote this wonderful summary so we’re more or less just going to hang back and let him tell it in his own words. Oh, and regarding the title of this post, that is Mike’s, […]

Soon Redline Guide Ryan McGuire will head out west to guide on Mt Baker (and you can join him). So this was his last tour up Mt Washington this season. There is still some skiing to be […]

A Section of the AT

They had never hiked before; it was a completely new experience, so we figured they may has well jump in with both feet. So, Redline Guide Mike Cherim had them take on a section of the Appalachian Trail (AT). And if that wasn’t enough, he asked them to yo-yo at the end, returning the way they came. You may be wondering at this point what section. […]

Home Among the Trees

You can’t tell anyone where we are… is this clear? The deal was I could share my discovery and describe what I saw in detail, but I was forbidden to supplement my dissertation with photos or video. Nor could I divulge — or even hint at — their general location. This deal was done on a handshake. A grimy but firm and trustworthy handshake. One that […]
