craigslist is always a good spot to look for jobs in a area. maybe south lake tahoe, when i was there seemed like they had a ton of bars.

haha yeah.. I'm pretty sure Utah would be the last state I'd want to bartend in. 3.2% beers no thanks

Yeah this past weekend was really sketch. It was all chunder and slick from the constant rain we hiked up in. Maybe I said that already? Anyway.. some random hikers wanted a picture of us and she emailed me these pics. Here's what left in the bowl. You can clearly see how losing your edge would cause you to slide down the wall and break a leg.. Guess My season is done till August.

Good call Kara. Once the aprons melt out high on snowfields, it's not such a great idea to ride them. If you lose an edge you can go on a high speed tumble into rocks and such. It's not pretty. Something that is perfectly safe a month before can be high consequence. I can think of a half dozen accidents in Colorado where this has happened. All died. They were all great skiers and snowboarders too.

Pretty sweet that you got July turns though. Way to get after it.

Yeah Killclimbz that's exactly what happened to a snowboarder that was in the bowl earlier that day.. slid down the wall couldn't stop, hit the rocks at the base and broke his leg. Had to launch a rescue. I did one sketchy run.. and called it quits it was a sad excuse for a run tho.. maybe did two turns trying not to slide out..

Yeah steez there was some snow.. but not enough to be practical. Here are two photos from our perspective..

I plan on getting up there at the end of this season! I live in philly and i don't care if i have to drive the 12 hours alone. Ive been reading about tuckermans for the past few months now and am pretty psyched.

Poor east coast...

awesome. Just make sure you plan on staying in the white mountains for a few days. Mt Washington is know for having some of the most severe weather on earth literally.. a day planned in Tucks can easily be spoiled by mother nature no matter what time of year. Most people plan on mid to late April trips.

Same here, I'll probably be heading up sometime in the middle of April next year.

Karasene, how long would you suggest staying? I'd hate to make the trek up there only to be burned by the weather.
