    Arrow Backcountry Ski Conditions Resources

    I figured I would post this thread/sticky to offer sites that discuss the conditions in the backcountry. As always, ski at your own risk and AZ nor myself accept any responsibility or liability for what you do using the information provided here. Be Prepared in the backcountry. Know how to rescue yourself if need be and know the area and the weather.

    Information for popular destinations:

    Tuckerman Ravine, Huntington Ravine, the Presidentials.

    Katahdin/Baxter State Park (look to the right for an update). Note that BSP has tight regulations for those seeking to backcountry ski.

    The Higher Summits of the Green Mountains.

    Bolton Valley's Nordic Center (which has extensive BC options).

    If anyone has other sources, please post them. I could not find one for Greylock or the Adirondacks.

    Live, Ski, or Die!

    Great thread idea. Of course there are several other local forum sites specifically dedicated to this. And they are probably the best resource for first hand accounts of specific conditions. But I assume it's improper to 'advertise' other forums here.

    Here are a few other web resources in addition to the great ones you listed:

    First hand reports on forums and blogs are probably the most useful.

    great idea for a thread and great start, tho many of these stations will only be able to give us a proximate of conditions.
    for us flatlanders (boston) more eyes on the ground, such as what tjf did for the dacks, is priceless.
    I think either TT or T4T sets up a condtions thread for various pockets, that steers away from spot burning and just talks of coverage, conditions and snow quality in general locales. should we do that in here or start a similar thread?

    I don't seem to have any problem doing exactly that when it's productive and not bashing.

    How about something like posting up groups or gatherings, kind of like whats done in the mtb scene. All my skiing buddies could care less about climbing to get the goods. When I feel the complete opposite, just love natural terrain and the quiet of the backcountry.
