I was at tuckermans a few weeks ago with my dad and it was sick. the hikes a bitch but overall it was pretty awesome skiing. I tried the lip first, not too bad- steep, but overall easy. Then i had a red bull and traversed over to the viewers left hand side and climbed up there. DONT CLIMB IT. hikes a bitch, takes about 45 min and no grip with ski boots, let alone any snowboard boots. When i got to the top, the red bull had really kicked in and i traversed over to the head. hadnt seen anyone drop in on it all day, and there werent many tracks down it. i picked what LOOKED like the easiest way down and ended up above a chute narrower than my skis above a 30 footer. I tried hop turning into it, caught an edge, and went down. the pitch was probably like 65 degrees and i was flying head first towards a boulder and this 30 footer. All of a sudden, something whipped me around and i started cartwheeling down the slope. Before i knew it, i was in the air for what seemed like eternity, before i landed on my back and kept cartwheeling down the hill. When i got my senses back everyone there (about 200 people) were applauding and screaming and shit. FUCK IT WAS SCARY. nearly died.
anyone there that weekend or have other stories from tuckermans?
timfortucks.com says the headwall has been measure at 55 degrees in some places, thats gnarly by the way, shits dangerous, lucky you didnt fall into a crevasse, when i went up there last week some park ranger guy with dreads living at the lodge told us that if we fell into a 80ft crevasse (covered by 2in snowbridges that you cant see) that the park rangers wouldnt even try to save you, but i dunno the deepest i fell into was only thigh deep
um sum areas of tucks do reach 65 degrees so dont go by the one place but an edge will hold side slipping at 55 degrees

we have the power to change the evil in the world. stand up and fight the obstacles between reality and your dreams. we can make a difference. all we need to do is stand together, and like a tidal wave splinters a dike, we will destroy what stands in our way
yea, tucks is 50 degrees, i think snow will slide if its more than a 55 degree angle and cause an avalanche
'Ya CKO, exposure? You aren't exactly the sports most reknowned photographer. OMG, I'm sure Bushfield is really upset you think he is a hucker. I can name a million other riders who are worse and take themselves way more seriously than Rory. Maybe you should not try and give your opinion on riders until you are financially in the position to do so. Otherwise, no one is going to want to work with you and you will never make it in dis' bizness. Get a life, loser.'
tucks is dope...i was there and this intense dude hopped a 30 plus footer then straightlined the entire ravine to the base...the whole ravine went nuts....like 1000 people absolutly flipped and it was like a fucking stadium....a very good time
