Tuckerman Ravine Ski Map

Often, when folks mention James Niehues, they’ll introduce him as “the artist that drew all the ski resorts” and while Niehues did paint a lot of ski resorts, that’s not all he painted. He has also has done many paintings and maps of backcountry ski areas, as well as National Parks and monuments. So, while Tuckerman Ravine, or “Tuck’s” as locals like to call it doesn’t have a lodge, a base area, or any lifts, it’s still portrayed in a classic and beautiful Niehues ski map painting, with all of its iconic skiable lines on display.

Located on New Hampshire’s Mount Washington, Tuckerman Ravine delivers some of the most iconic backcountry skiing on the east coast. It’s often skied in the spring when avalanche conditions have settled, but there’s still plenty of snow coverage. It’s home to a variety of ski lines, some as steep as 55°, and historically hosted backcountry ski races that were over four miles long. This beautiful, hand-painted Tuckerman Ravine ski map portrays the vast majority of skiable terrain in the area, with each line rendered in loving detail.
