Meet the MWOBS staff teams participating in this year’s Seek the Peak! Every summer, representatives from our administrative office in North Conway, Weather Station on the summit of Mount Washington, and everywhere in between, join together to advocate for the many projects and initiatives happening across the organization while celebrating this special institution alongside the community that makes it all possible. Thank you to all who support this event every year, and please consider supporting one of the below Observatory teams as they go head to head in some (friendly) fundraising competition!

You’re supporting all of your favorites including Ryan Knapp, Charlie Peachey, Alex Branton, Francis Tarasiewicz, Karl Philippoff, Alexis George, Tricia Hutton, and Jay Broccolo.
