Friends of Tuckerman Ravine
seeks to preserve and protect the unique alpine and sub-alpine eastern
slopes of Mount Washington NH and work in partnership with the US Forest
Service to sustain the traditional uses of this distinctive area.
Our most recent major accomplishment
(with many thanks to former Congressman Jeb Bradley) is the foot bridge
that allows hikers to park in over-flow lots along N.H. Route 16 and
reach the Pinkham Notch “Joe Dodge” AMC lodge and trailheads without
walking (or parking) on the highway.
Major Accomplishments include:
Thanks to an appeal to
Senator John Sununu, federal funds were allocated for new radios and
a telephone link between Hermit Lake Shelter and Pinkham Notch
providing continued reliable avalanche forecasting and rescue
Thanks to another
appeal, this time to Senator Judd Gregg, funding was secured to
drill a well that provides year round potable water at Hermit Lake.
Thanks to a $5000 gift
from the Nelson Gildersleeve Memorial Fund, Tuckerman First Aid
caches were replenished with essential supplies and equipment.
Thanks to our
volunteers a maintenance program for the Sherburne and Gulf of the
Slides Ski Trails has been implemented.
