When snow fell on The White Mountains, NH last weekend Vermont resident Aaron Rice, 30, couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hike up the famous Tuckerman Ravine and make some turns.
Aaron, famous as ‘the guy who skied 2.5-million vertical, uphill, in one year’, and two buddies set out early on Sunday and were rewarded for their efforts.
Today (October 18th) in Tuckerman Ravine!!
Granted, 99% of today didn’t look like this (see story for proof). However, it did feel like this all day! Spent the full day playing in the snow! On a beautiful mountain! With perfect conditions! And with great people! And even got a handful of turns in!! What more could you ask for?! W/@rwdarlow and @blakekeogh
