An Internship on Mount Washington

2016-11-08 11:08:57.000 – Mike Carmon, Weather Observer & Education Specialist


One of our most exciting programs here at the Mount Washington Observatory is our summit internship program. Interns spend a season (fall, winter, or summer) working alongside summit observers, working their same week on/week off schedule, living and working on the summit of Mount Washington during their on-shift. It’s an awesome opportunity to get real-world experience in the field of meteorology, and learn firsthand what it takes to operate a weather station in such a complex and harsh environment.

Interns often move on to bigger and better things, but many don’t go too far! All of the current full-time summit weather observers started out as interns, so you never know where an internship opportunity could lead!

We’re currently accepting applications for our winter internship, which runs from early January through early May. If you’re looking to experience Mount Washington at its most ferocious, the winter season is the one for you.

Recently, summer intern Tim Greene wrapped up his internship with the Observatory, and discussed his experience in an online article here.
