AMC ready for start of 2014 season in NH's outdoors
In addition to welcoming people to the outdoors, the AMC is also a leading publisher of a variety of books, maps and journals, among them “Appalachia,” which at 138 years old this year is North America’s longest-running journal of mountaineering and conservation.
The history of Tuckerman Ravine is alive and well at the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, which since the start of April has held a free, weekly film series celebrating it, beginning on April 5 with “Fire on the Mountain,” which told the tale of the Army’s 10th Mountain Division; and on April 12, with a showing of “Legends of American Skiing — Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Inferno,” whose 1939 iteration, according to the AMC, marked “the last big-mountain downhill race in America.”
Located between Wildcat Mountain and Carter Dome, the hut is the oldest structure in the AMC’s system still in use.
