AMC Pinkham Notch Presents: Intrepid Descent Documentary Film

Intrepid Descent captures the classic wilderness experience of skiing Tuckerman Ravine, the legendary – and dangerous – birthplace of backcountry skiing. Nestled just below the summit of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in New England (and home to some of the most extreme weather on Earth), the Ravine, with its near-vertical slopes of rock, ice and snow, has been home to triumph and tragedy since the early 1920’s. Today, it remains a mecca for skiers and adventurers from all over the world.

Intrepid Descent pays homage both to the mountain and to the individuals who dare to test themselves on its treacherous slopes.

Pinkham Happenings Programs begin at 8 p.m. and are free and open to all. Call to find out more or to be added to our monthly email list: (603) 466-2721 or
