This weekend, something awful happened at Mount Washington. It’s the highest mountain in the Northeast United States, standing at 6,288 feet. A young skier named Madison Saltsburg was just 20 years old when she died after falling 600 feet. Mount Washington is known for its dangerous weather, and this weekend was no different. Besides Madison’s terrible accident, two other people were saved from the harsh weather.

This is an Account of the Incident

It all went wrong for Madison Saltsburg on Sunday. She was in Tuckerman Ravine skiing down the southeast side of Mount Washington when she slipped. The area is wellknown but it’s risky for ski lovers who like to go offtrail. The stormy weather with ice made things really tough even for those who are used to danger.

This is a weekend story

This past weekend was tough for rescue teams on the mountain. They had to save at least two people from rough spots. They started their work on Saturday. The night brought wind and storms making it Sunday morning before they finished. Bad weather with lots of snow and strong winds made saving people hard. They guessed about a foot of snow would fall which didn’t make things any easier.

This is about Joabe Barbosa, a 23yearold who loves hiking. He’s from Kentucky. Barbosa took a scary fall in Ammonusuc Ravine where he hit his head and one of his sneakers came off. He wasn’t ready for the hike but he managed to call for help. Rescuers found him four hours later. His story shows how important it is to be ready for anything when you’re out hiking on Mount Washington.
