Mid-October Reminders

2014-10-12 19:34:00.000 – Kaitlyn O`Brien, Weather Observer/Education Specialist


Busy! That’s the best word to sum up this cool, crisp, mid-October Sunday. Typically around this time of year, everyone is making their last few visits to the summit before operations close down for the winter season. If you are wondering what the current operational hours are, please see Ryan’s comment from yesterday, where he provided thorough descriptions of what to expect over the next few weeks.

It’s hard to believe we are nearly halfway through the month already. There are just a few important reminders to consider before October quickly becomes November. First, there are 3 days left to apply for the Winter Internship! If you or someone you know is interested in living and working on top of the Northeast’s highest peak, please see more information here. Also, October 31 is the last day to take advantage of the Subaru VIP Purchase Program. Don’t miss out on this great deal!
