First Trip of the Season

2012-12-06 22:19:50.000 – Rebecca Scholand,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


Today kicked off the trip season on the summit with our first overnight. Eastern Mountain Sports rode to the summit today with various staff members to capture some pictures and footage for their climbing school. They were in luck too as the weather could not have cooperated more. With winds decreasing as the day progressed and temperatures rising just enough, it made a long day outside tolerable.

Even though this first trip of the season was EMS staff there are still plenty of trips to sign up for. Between our EduTrips and DayTrips, as well as Partner Led Climbing trips, you can enjoy all that Mount Washington has to offer in the winter. With any luck you will experience the extremes of the mountain and the shear beauty on a clear day. Either way, you can not go wrong. Our trips even make the perfect holiday gift.
