Description

Burt Ravine North is always a wildcard when it comes to skiing.

Some years, it can be a huge bowl, with some of the best turns on Mount Washington.

More commonly, it's a scree and bush fest.

When it's in though, it makes a good escape from the Mount Clay area without having to walk back from the Cog.

Walk down the scree section of the Jewell Trail, then drop in to the Ravine.

In thin conditions there is a scree field here.

Ski down the headwall, which slowly mellows into a long, low angle gully.

This slowly gets bushier until you’re well below treeline.

Here, the line degrades into adventure skiing, bushwhacking and water hole dodging down Clay Brook until you hit the Jewell Trail.

This is usually well trodden and easy to pick up.

Another option is to bushwhack back to the Cog or up to the Jewell Trail if the brook starts getting not passable.

This line doesn’t come in super often and should be at the bottom of your to do list in most seasons.
