Sure, you can hike up as far as you feel comfortable, it gets steeper the higher you climb. It may be a little tricky in some places to put your skis on if no one has created a nice snow platform but it's not that big of a deal if the slope isn't super steep.The DW did mention hiking to Tuckerman in the spring but I'd have a hard time watching others ski and not give it a try myself. I know the top is steep but if I'm in the right shape for the hike can one ski at least part of it if the steeper sections are above one's ability to ski safely?
