Mt. Washington avalanche danger warning
The center's danger scale starts at low, and then climbs to moderate, considerable, high and, ultimately, extreme, when both natural and human-triggered avalanches are certain.
On March 1, 2013, the avalanche center said a solo ice climber died as the result of injuries suffered in an avalanche in Pinnacle Gully. The avalanche danger that day was "moderate."
A hiker was killed on April 1, 2012, in Tuckerman Ravine when he fell on icy terrain and slid into crevasse in the lower portion of the bowl, in the vicinity of the "Open Book" area, the avalanche center said, and less than three months earlier, on Jan. 9, 2012, a solo hiker died when he fell near the "lip" area of Tuckerman Ravine.
