Circumnavigation of Mount Washington
We had a nice descent of the east snowfields staying high and left towards Huntington Ravine. It could definitely have been softer, but i’m not complaining… easily some of the most beautiful skiing in New England
Central looked pretty burly with the sun still low, and the “northish” exposure at the top, so we poked our heads over into Diagonal (the site of a previous adventure of ours). It looked pretty good, but we decided to give it a minute to cook.
After some water and snacks, low and behold perfect corn snow! Not too firm… not too slushy. Just right

Allen skipping to his own beat
