New "Premium Content" Now Available to MWO Members!

NORTH CONWAY, NH - January 26, 2007 - For several years, visitors to Mount Washington Observatory's popular website have enjoyed breathtaking views of the Mount Washington area via four webcams. With the introduction of new "Premium Content", members of the non-profit Observatory now have exclusive access to a variety of new webcam images, time-lapse sunrise and sunset videos and a new weekly video update produced by the organization's mountaintop staff.

MWO members can access the new content by signing in or creating a Web Account and linking it to their membership.

On the Ravines Cam, Observatory members now have access to four new images including zoomed-in views of Tuckerman Ravine, Huntington Ravine, Gulf of Slides and the Northern Presidentials. There is also an amazing daily time-lapse sunrise video of Mount Washington as the sky brightens, the clouds whip over the Rockpile and the early-morning colors shine on the mountain. Most days, the clouds come right over the summit, directly over the webcam, which sits atop Wildcat Mountain.

On the Observatory's North View Cam, members now have access to four new images, including zoomed-in views of Mount Adams, Mount Madison, Mount Jefferson and a shot of "Home Stretch" on the Auto Road and the upper portion of the Cog Railway. Members can also enjoy two daily time-lapse videos, including sunrise and sunset videos.

The Observation Deck Cam and West View Cam each offer Observatory members a daily sunrise time-lapse movie.

When the new Presidentials Cam is launched at the conclusion of the Observatory's "Bretton Woods Challenge" online membership drive, the general viewing public will have access to a beautiful view of the western flank of the Presidential Range. Observatory members will also have access to four additional zoomed-in views of Mounts Eisenhower, Jefferson, Monroe and Washington. Also, members will be able to view a stunning daily time-lapse video of the entire Presidential Range as the sun sets over Bretton Woods Mountain Resort.

One of the most exciting Premium Content offerings is the Observatory's new weekly video update, the Mount Washington ObsCast. The weekly piece recaps the previous week on the mountain and gives members an inside look at daily life in one of the most extreme places on Earth.

To become a member of the Mount Washington Observatory and have access to the new collection of Premium Content at MountWashington.org, please visit the Observatory's online membership center
