Tours, Tours, Tours.

As you may know, especially if you’re a member, we offer free tours of our famous mountaintop weather station throughout the year to members of our non-profit organization (mostly in the warmer months as you might imagine). Today, after a quiet Sunday on the summit our shift offered five tours to a variety of interested members who wanted to learn more about the inner-workings of the Observatory and gain a deeper understanding of what it is we do here on a daily basis. One group came all the way from Maryland!

As we continue the countdown to Seek the Peak (this FRIDAY and SATURDAY!!) we are gearing up for a full-on open house Saturday from 9:30AM through 3:00PM for every participant who is interested in receiving a complimentary tour and delicious refreshments with the crew– fresh-baked cookies anyone??

For those of you who are interested in setting up a tour any other day, please do not hesitate to reach our Education/Outreach staff at either Outreach@MountWashington.org or Education@MountWashington.org, or call (603) 356-2137, ext. 211!

As for the rest of you, see you this weekend at SEEK THE PEAK!!
