Was up in the North Conway area this weekend. Had free tickets to Shawnee Peak which wasn't too bad. Had some nice small "cliff" drops towards the top that if you got enough speed, you could get some substantial hang time.
Was driving down rt16 with my girlfriend and drove by Wildcat and Mt.Washington base area and noticed a LOT of cars at the base of Mt. Washington. Anyone here ever hike and ski Tuckermans? I've been purchasing equipment over the past 2 months to make the trip and attempt Tuckermans.
My biggest questions are for those who have done it:
What did you use for hiking boots? Has anyone done it with snowboard boots/ snowboard boots with snow shoes? Seems like there are some big trades offs between snowboard boots and hiking shoes for a 2+ hour hike.
Are there trails that run to the base parking area?
