Avalanche dangers still exist on Mount Washington
CAMPTON (AP) - It may be spring, but winter conditions are holding on longer than they have in recent years on Mount Washington.
Snow Ranger Jeff Lane says some of the largest and most destructive avalanches of the season are in March and early April - and there's also an increase in the number of people traveling in avalanche terrain without the knowledge, skills and equipment to do so safely.
The U.S. Forest Service recommends visitors coming to Tuckerman Ravine or elsewhere on the mountain to spend time planning their trip in advance. This includes reading the daily avalanche advisory issued by the Forest Service.
