Lots of great early season shots starting to pop up in our feed lately; from Cannon to Mt Washington and all around the Whites! One sure sign of winter having arrived yesterday was Mount Washington Avalanche Center (MWAC)’s first General Bulletin of the Season, posted yesterday.
MWAC is the only Avalanche Center in the Eastern United States and forecasts for the Cutler River Drainage on Mount Washington. A General Bulletin is updated every 72 hours early and late season, and 5 scale forecast every day once the bowl fills in. It is updated daily on their website mountwashingtonavalancheventer.org. If you’re heading out into the alpine to play, this is a great resource to prepare for what conditions may be like.
If you’re a ravine regular there will be some familiar faces returning to don green jackets again this year. Justin Preisendorfer, Brian Johnston and Joe Klementovich have all been tapped to return to their roots this season while the Avalanche Center is in the process of hiring some new folks.
Think cold thoughts! Winter is coming!
