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?
