Thank you!

First and foremost, thank you! Our year-end fundraising campaign was a success, raising more than $35,000 through over 400 individual donations. With over 80 years of history on the summit, if it weren’t for our generous members and donors, we simply would not be able to exist up here. Whether you’re an annual donor or just a fan of the observatory, thank you for supporting us.

Shift change today went relatively smoothly. It was the first time since the fall that we were able to take our four wheel drive van, with chains attached, completely to the summit. Although we were sliding around a bit towards the top, getting a 35 minute van ride up to the summit is much easier and more convenient than travelling up the road for at least an hour using our snow cat. The summit is quickly shedding its winter coat, as rivers of snowmelt seem to appear out of nowhere along the road. With T-shirt weather rapidly approaching, the Observatory is preparing for the large crowds of summer summit visitors as the Mount Washington Auto Road opens within the coming months. If you’ve never visited, consider making the Mount Washington Observatory a destination point this summer! I can honestly say its beautiful views and incredible weather never cease to amaze me.
