Replying to Unpopular Opinion: Tuckerman's Ravine
I'm just gonna say it. Tucks isn't that hard. Sure it's steep and its open, but 95% of the lines people ski there and brag about are pretty straight forward and simple. It's these people who breed the "I've skied Tucks, I'm the best skier on the mountain" type of people, and I don't think anyone in truth likes talking to these people. Sure there's some gnarly shit at Tucks, per say the 30-40ft cliff in the smack center barely no one ever drops, or the much more technical stuff at Hillmans, but the people who ski that stuff are mostly humble about it (except A****** D****** fan boy type people). It's not supposed to be a weenie measure contest were basically every weenie is average. There's much harder and more adrenaline pumping lines on the east coast if your willing to do 40mph through some thick trees, but are they are beautify and fun to climb at tucks? no, they are for when you want to test your limits and maybe shit your pants. Tucks is about a great hike, meeting great people, and getting some nice unique lines in your day.
