Based on the New England Ski Museum's 1998 exhibit, this book features photos and text about Tuckerman Ravine, site of the most dramatic and popular backcountry skiing in the Northeast. It details the story of the ravine's pioneer skiers in the 1920s such as Joe Dodge, the first headwall descent by John Carleton and Charles Proctor in 1931, the legendary top-to-bottom Inferno races of the 1930s when Dick Durrance and Toni Matt led the pack, the many first descents of Brooks Dodge in the 1940s, the various shelters at Hermit Lake, and the efforts of Forest Service Rangers and the volunteer ski patrol to protect skiers from avalanche and injury.
