    I was over at Mt.Washington, N.H on July 4th. I took the Tuckerman Ravine up and saw 3 people packing in with skis. There is a surprising about of snow left in the bowl. You could probably make an 800' run with a couple hundred feet of vertical. Nothing like skiing in July in New England.

    Yes, the weatherman on NECN showed one of these guys skiing on the 4th before his weather report. It was pretty cool. You just gotta love New England.

    With the 90 degree day today, I would assume that it must be over 32 degrees at Tucks today. Ski while you can! You'll only have to wait another 3 months for the snow to come back!

    The 4th of July bowl in Breckenridge, CO always has snow. The hike and ski down is a popular event every year.

    That's amazing for the east coast. Colorado with its peaks reaching 12 to 14 thousand feet is one thing but Mt. Wash is not even the highest peak in the east. There are three higher peaks in NC. Mt Mitchel the highest doesn't quite reach 7000 feet. I'm surprised M. Wash has snow in the summer. The average high on Mt Mitchel in the summer is 60 degrees. Mt Wash must have an average summer high of 40 to hold the snow.
