I'm no Tuckerman expert.. this spring was my first trek up there and I live an hour south.. It was attempt 5 in late spring I finally made it (alone because I was sick of waiting for people) after 4 earlier trips ended up spoiled 3 times due to weather (110mph winds, avalanche warnings, 90mph winds) and once due to irresponsibility (everyone but me decided to get hungover the night before)

I'd say 4-5 days if you're coming from far.. worst case scenario there's always Wildcat mountain which is directly across the street from Pinkham Notch and the Tuckerman Ravine trail. Wildcat is the best all mountain terrain in NH in my opinion and has the most vert.

I suggest going to this site Time for Tuckerman - The Consummate Guide to Skiing Tuckerman Ravine they have a pretty active forum board and update conditions daily so you can start planning your trip.

Yeah I know, You are so right.. Best part is I'm finding doing things on my own is putting me in the right places at the right time to finally meet the people I want to meet. Like that day I met more dedicated people than any of my friends (granted majority of them were skiers) but still.. and by the time I reached the top it was as if I went with people all along.

But as a safety thing I still need to go with people for certain trips.. you know me, still trying to get my feet under me with getting out there and riding the real stuff. Hoping this trip out west will help me learn more about powder riding and BC. Still don't know who I'll be riding with or where I'll be living exactly but I'm going for it!

Sweet thanks wolfie.
Yeah, I decided even with the location and people.. I'm better off sticking with a vehicle until I can sell it. So I'm driving cross country. Not sure if I'll make it to Mt Hood yet or not but if I do I'll be sure to let you know! Trying to plan on living/riding in Summit, SLC, and Tahoe at the moment.. unless I go broke.. I'll be stuck somewhere with a mountain at least! haha.

Or which from noticing how you quickly change your mind, you might just say eff it on your trip. Decide you like it in one location and live there for good

ha you never know.
I do change my mind quickly.. but I also like to see new things. Sticking in one place would only happen if I get stuck.

Poor east coast...
Umm wut.....? I'm right outside Philly and Google directions is quoting me about 8.5-9 hours to Pinkham Notch. Tuckerman's is in my sights either this season or next, but I will get there.
