Overview

David Goodman describes the 6.2 mile long route of the Avalanche Brook Ski Trail as "exciting and rugged." After a sustained moderate climb starting near the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center and then a rather lengthy traverse with some mild ups and downs, the trail "plunges downhill for ... two miles," terminating near the trailhead of the Rocky Branch hiking trail. Our party will be ten or less to conform to Forest Service's wilderness requirements, as the trail passes through the Dry River Wilderness. Fitness and experience in skiing remote backcountry trails will be required of participants. Climbing skins will be optional; the ability to ascend slight inclines without them, which means either use of grip wax or ski bases with a fishscale grip pattern, is mandatory. Skiers should plan to use skis with metal edges and a downhill bias.
