Hey all, been a lurker for sometime this season as i finally convinced myself to check out the ravine for the first time. I planned on heading up this weekend with a small party to hike in and ski hillmans or left gully however, the weather has me a but worried. Without much backcountry experience, I'm not sure if its a great idea for us to head up this weekend, I think the avy report today scared me off a bit along with the mixed precipitation and relatively high winds of the next few days. I was hoping I could get some input from the community as to what i may be like this weekend in terms of snow saftey and conditions. Will there still be a bootpack for most terrain, or will it be filled in or iced over from the recent precipitation. I understand predictions can be fickle on mt Washington and that one needs to always be cautious when venturing into the backcountry, but i was just looking for some honest opinions. We will not have crampons or ice axes as none of us have used them and we dont think its a great idea to try them out in a possibly critical situation. If its the general consencious that it will be iced over and sketchy, thats fine, better to know now and call it than to show up and have a bad time. We can either ski saturday, sunday or not at all if it doesnt look good. I guess ill just leave it at that for now. Thanks in advance!
