No cost, no crowds and no lifts make backcountry exploration in the White Mountains of New Hampshire both fun and ridiculously tiring. What they lack in elevation (compared to west coast), the presidential range more than makes up for in bad weather, steeps, and avalanche conditions. This past winter the Meatheads were there to take full advantage of the micro weather windows that allow for good skiing. Stacey Rachdorf, Ben Leoni, Ryan McDermott, and Jay Bowen made several missions to Mt. Washington and surrounding peaks score rare, above tree line turns.
