Skiing isn’t a winter sport, it’s a snow sport. There’s still one last patch of snow on New Hampshire’s Tuckerman Ravine, and some determined souls were able to get some August turns (or a turn?) in.

It’s very likely that this is the last patch of snow in the Eastern United States. Tuckerman Ravine is on the flanks of Mt. Washington, and the base of the cirque can accumulate a massive snowpack due to avalanches and wind-deposited snow.

Sadly, the patch will almost certainly melt before the Ravine’s first measurable snowfall, which typically occurs in mid-September.
