Snowfall Contest

Jackson Covered Bridge

As winter is engulfing the summit and starting to spread into the valley, the Mount Washington Observatory has partnered with the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce (JACC) for a snowfall contest.

Tickets for this event can be purchased for $2 through PayPal on the JACC store, or in person at their office, as well as the Weather Discovery Center. Then all you have to do is register your prediction for the day and time that Jackson, New Hampshire will receive its first 6′ of snow in a single storm. Better yet it is a great way to practice your weather predicting skills and help support the JACC and the Mount Washington Observatory as half the ticket sales will be split between the two. So what about the other half? If your prediction is correct, you’ll win half of the ticket sales!

Keeping us up to date, a webcam mounted on the JACC will be monitoring the accumulation. To view the cam you can visit
