The White Mountain Report: Mar 22nd, 2018
Well IMNSHO we sure dodged a bullet with this last storm. After 3 biggies in 10 daze, nobody I know was too thrilled with having to deal with the aftermath of another Nor'Easter. Sure, the ski community digs it, but it really doesn't do anything for the climbing other than make it harder to get around.

Do we really need another guidebook for the White Mountains? From what I see I would have to answer that in the affirmative!

Selected Ice Conditions effective March 22, 2018
In spite of the crazy swings in the weather this month, including a 70+ degree day or two, there is still some lower elevation ice to be climbed. Not all that much mind you, but there is some. Needless to say you should be careful of the undermining and delaminating that certainly is taking place and be sure to check out at what's above you. But climbs that aren't in direct sun all day or that are huge, like Dracula and Standard Route, still have some life in them. As far as the Ravines, there are options up there as well. That said, I'm not counting on more than another week or so out of this season, at least down here. That's especially true if the prognosticators are right about temps being in the upper 40's+ for much of next week!
