Mt Washington Ammonoosuc Ravine ski trip
A lifelong skier, Paul was introduced to telemark skiing in 2004 and is now raising heel as a PSIA certified tele ski instructor. He's been an AMC-NH Ski Committee leader since 2010.
The quiet, determined hike up, watching the day reveal it's plan. A flood of relief at reaching the end of the climb, and a well-earned snack. Then the rush and exhilaration of a drop into the steeps, the whisper of powder in a glade, chest heaving with giddy laughter, playing where few people ride, the beauty and satisfaction of earning your turns. Not to mention the easy camaraderie of the group! Add no lift line OR ticket, and if that speaks to the classic skier (or rider, lol) in you, come join us in the backcountry!
