Mount Washington Observatory 'Summit Adventures' Named a 2012 'Best of New England -- Editors' Choice' Winner by Yankee Magazine

North Conway, NH—July 3, 2012—Mount Washington Observatory’s Summit Adventures have been recognized as a 2012 “Editors’ Choice” winner in Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide to New England. Hailed as “Best on-top-of-the-world feeling,” the two-day trips welcome visitors to the Observatory’s famous mountaintop weather station, allowing them to spend a night and experience the beauty and weather of the Northeast’s tallest peak.

“We are incredibly proud to have received this distinction,” says Mount Washington Observatory Executive Director Scot Henley. “As a nonprofit institution with a mission to advance understanding of Earth’s atmosphere, our trips allow us to share our work with the public. Yankee’s recognition attests to just how incredible that work—and Mount Washington—truly are.”

The Observatory has been monitoring Mount Washington’s weather from its summit station since 1932. Observatory scientists live on the mountain, taking hourly weather observations and conducting research related to the weather and climate.

“As year-round inhabitants, we know the mountain unlike anyone else,” says Observatory Director of Education Michelle Cruz. “Besides allowing you to spend a night on the summit, an experience not available any other way, our trips show you a side of Mount Washington you’ve never seen.”

Featuring cozy accommodations at the Observatory’s legendary mountaintop weather station, the trips include round-trip transportation to the summit, home-cooked meals, and all the famous Mount Washington weather and scenery you can handle.

Four dates are available in July and August, priced at $249 for Observatory members and $299 for non-members. More information may be found on MountWashington.org/Events.

Yankee Magazine’s Travel Guide features 287 “Best of New England — Editors’ Choice” selections, which include the region’s best dining and lodging venues, attractions, adventures, local secrets, and bargains.

“This special travel issue highlights ‘The Best of New England:’ more sights to see, things to do, places to eat or spend an overnight than most of us could possibly fit into even the most jam-packed vacation,” says Yankee’s editor Mel Allen. “Wherever you may travel this season in New England, there’s certain to be a Yankee ‘Best’ nearby.”
