Description

This tour moves through 3 different high alpine zones on Mt Washington.

The approach was via the Gulf Of Slides trail on skins followed by a bootpack up Central gully.

We then were able to skin and ski over to the Oakes Gulf.

We skied the best line for that day after assessing snow conditions.

After bootbacking back up Okaes we were able to traverse over to the top of Sluice in Tuckerman Ravine and then ski out via Little Headwall to the Shurberne trail.
