Love to know how much longer it takes for a foot of ice (which I think is approximately what you got the last few days) to melt, as opposed to a foot of snow!
Looking from Otisfield ME there was a very distict and odd shaped line.
Absolutely beautiful! ...and a harbinger of hope
Please keep the pictures coming. They are beautiful 😀
Great job with the summit pics!
Looking at you guys from Sweden tonight.
Love that mountain. Climbed it twice
So beautiful! Life is good.
GRAND 🙌 CAPTURE 👌

As another week winds down on a fundamentally altered human experience, we learn on the stable and timeless presence of nature. Our streams flow and surfaces shift as the lengthening days of early spring coax movement and growth in the northern valleys and forests. This perpetual cycle is one of several gifts we can take from our current condition. A reminder of how impermanent our problems may be in the face of enduring natural rhythms.
We are pleased to partner with our longtime friend, @carlheilman2
to share his magnificent Adirondack photography. Hopefully this will be a bright spot in your day, and a reminder to stay in place knowing that this wilderness will be here and waiting for you. ... See MoreSee Less
I hope you are taking advantage of the PPP Loan programs and the EIDL Grant and loan programs so you'll be around when this is over.
Thank you Mountaineer & thank you Carl !
Beautiful. Thank you.

It was a very tough decision to close Petra Cliffs before the State mandated order came through. Keeping our community safe has always been a top priority of ours.
Please read through the decision made by the board of CRAG-VT. This was, again, another very tough decision to come to. Be well everyone. ~ The Petra Crew
Please also listen to the CRAG-VT President, Kristofer Fiore, and his video announcement here: www.facebook.com/cragvt/videos/2635399446735388/?notif_id=1585939632494527¬if_t=page_post_reac...Now is Not the Time to Seek Climbing Adventures.
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that climbing is not in line with the guidelines set forth by the Vermont Department of Health and the Governor's Stay at Home Order. As you will read on any kiosk and in any guidebook, climbing is inherently dangerous and by staying home, we can do our part to reduce any additional strain on our medical system. Additionally, climbing involves close contact, shared surfaces, and for many it means traveling to another community to recreate.
Thank you for your support and engagement in the Vermont climbing community. Climbing is our collective passion and this is equally challenging for us all.
Stay home. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
CRAG-VT Board of Directors

In 1986 Canadian mountaineer Sharon Wood and her teammate Dwayne Congdon reached the summit of Mt. Everest (Chomolungma) via a variation to the difficult West Ridge route. Herein, Sarah Boon reviews Wood's 2019 memoir, “Rising,” which follows Wood along her path to becoming the first North American woman to stand atop the storied peak. "Wood’s book is a window into the world of women in climbing at a time when many still considered women to be inferior mountaineers," Boon writes.

In this story, US Army Mountain Warfare School officer Nathan Fry shares his experience with the NATO Partnership for Peace Program that took place in Switzerland in the summer of 2019. “At a time when international relationships seem to be fracturing, engagements such as the Partnership for Peace mountaineering course have taken on a new value in creating a shared appreciation for other cultures,” he writes.

Thank you for your support through this season that ended much differently than normal. We had a successful season from a safety standpoint with only a handful of incidents and accidents despite quite a few human triggered avalanches. The community stoke was high though the snowpack and weather did not supply the goods as often as we would like. As usual, our amazing ski patrol turned out to help in March and were invaluable in navigating those first weekends when the coronavirus reared its ugly head. Late in March, we had @avalanchegeeks, Mike Austin to work as an intern with Glenn Pinson as an emergency hire. They were meant to provide late winter opportunities for the other members of the snow ranger team to take some time off. Turns out, vacation travel was off the table given the rising epidemic, but the two visiting forecasters helped us maintain social distancing among the team and reduced our exposure time to the public and to each other.
The season ends on the east side of the range with a closure order in effect for the east side of Mount Washington, including Gulf of Slides, Tuckerman Ravine and Huntington Ravine and all of the trails in between. While this may seem to be an extreme measure, consider the viewpoint of Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Disease. “the fact is what I like to see is when people look at what we’re doing and say, ‘you’re overreacting.’ For me, the dynamics and the history of outbreaks is you are never where you think you are with the (spread)– if you think you’re in-line with the outbreak, you’re already three weeks behind. So you’ve got to be almost overreacting a bit to keep up with it.” So in addition to the annual closure that occurs to the section of the Tuckerman Ravine Trail, a much larger closure is in effect. Pinkham Notch parking lot will be closed to the public, with both the closure orders enforced with fines and even possible jail time.
Please do your part and stay near home, hike in the woods, run a new route, or take up that project you’ve been putting off. The mountains have been around for a long time and will be here when life returns to normal. Thanks again! ... See MoreSee Less
Remind your hiking friends to please stay home until the threat has totally passed.
We do not need, or want, to see
a surge in the White Mountain Region
due to someone's selfish and thoughtless behavior!
Stay Home! Stay Safe!!!
Glad I went up Right Gully today while it was still legal.
Thanks for your patrol work and avalanche forecasts.
Going to be a lot of people hiking up Wildcat today!
Respect. Right call and appreciate all you do to keep us safe. This included.
Sad but true people... Just stay home and hike around areas near you that are not high traffic
Good for you!! Nice to see responsible choices are being made!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Needed to happen, thank you
Right move. Thank you!
Thank god some common sense!
I mean there’s no guarantee mountains will be there when this is over. But good call
It is the right thing to do...
