Catching the edge of the backcountry ski season, we mean. That’s what Redline Guide Phoebe Seltzer did with one returning guest with an east side objective (Tux, of course). We mean “edge of the season” loosely as we have skied through May and into June before utilizing the Eastern Snow Fields, Airplane Gully, and more. But the reality is the things are changing. Traffic is slowing down a bit. The next season on Mt Washington is starting to poke through. Literally, there are holes.
As you’ll see in the photos, the team had a great day for adventure skiing. That’s not always the case what with the weather and all — but that is always part of the experience. This time the experience was to relish the good conditions on a fine day. Excellent.
