Comments: Bring your snowshoes! In the morning Tuckerman was solid/bare boots up to where Huntington Ravine Trail turns off, then immediately needed snowshoes for Huntington Ravine Trail -- deep mashed potatoes, deep postholes, and lots of places to get entrapped. I was very happy for my 25" snowshoes here -- though at points even those were not enough to keep me on top of the snow. Got on the fire road near Harvard Cabin where snowshoes also proved useful -- I passed lots of people who were postholing up to their knees without snowshoes, even in the road. Needed snowshoes all the way up to the ravine and even with them sank through the snow into water at one spot. As soon as I got back down the slope of Huntington Ravine I put my snowshoes on again and wore them all the way back to Pinkham Notch.
