Last weekend we travelled to Mt. Washington in New Hampshire to take a course on safe winter travel in the backcountry.  The focus was on predicting avalanche risks, rescue techniques, and diagnosing winter snow conditions.  More details can be found here.   The pictures below show us on the way up to Tuckerman's Ravine, digging snow pits, doing 'column tests', and conducting Rutschblock tests.
