Tuckerman Ravine opened today. (https://mountwashingtonavalanchecenter. ... rKF-kb6h4E)
Travel restrictions still in place, but who knows? Auto Road says they plan to open Thursday.

I'm local, and the stars aligned Friday with spectacular weather and an open Otto, so I just had to... The snow ran from just below the road to almost the Alpine Garden, 500+ feet of vertical, to judge by the topo maps. Since my last time on skis was the end of March, my only goal was to have fun and not make a fool of myself. Think I succeeded in both. Here are some phone photos -
