2021 Skiing on the Westside

I’ve had an unexpectedly beautiful two dozen days skiing in 2021 on the Westside of Mount Washington.
1/21/2021 ART to Lower Monroe Brook;
1/23/2021 ART to Gem Pool (3450′)
1/30/2021 Cog to Clay Brook, Burt Ravine

1°F at Cog base, very cold, uneventful tour, re-flagging route from fork in Clay Brook to Cog.

2/5/2021 ART to Lower Monroe Brook (~3500′)
2/6/2021 ART to South Ammonoosuc Ravine (4000′)

Followed 2-day-old SAR team tracks up river into ravine from Ian Forgay’s search & recovery Feb 3. Found D2 debris pile in South Gully.

2/12/2021 Cog to Upper Waumbek Switch, Sunset Tour
2/13/2021 Cog to 4000′, Sunset Tour
2/15/2021 ART to Garys Glade

11 years since Gary Goebel passed 2-15-2010, cleared half dozen blowdowns at 3200′

2/17/2021 Ammonoosuc River Trail, Pipeline trailwork
ice crust; worked on pipeline blowdowns
2/20/2021 ART to DOC Rock, Pipeline trailwork
ice crust; worked on pipeline blowdowns
2/21/2021 Cog to Jacobs Ladder, Sunset Tour;

Perfect untracked powder next to trax from JL to Upper Waumbek Switch, and between trax to Waumbek Tank; sat by fire pit until sunset;

2/24/2021 ART to South Ammonoosuc Ravine (4700′)

I took forever skinning up ART off-trail, popped-out at 4000′ waterfall campsites, late descent, deteriorating weather

2/26/2021 ART to South Ammonoosuc Ravine (4700′)

I thought John Mallery ditched me, when I continued skinning above Gem Pool, however, he trailed me by a half-hour.
