Time Lapse Compilation and New Year’s Eve

2014-12-31 18:32:25.000 – Michael Dorfman, Weather Observer/IT Specialist


We have our annual New Year’s overnight fundraiser up on the summit tonight! They’re very excited to experience the extreme weather here on the summit, as winds have gusted to hurricane force with temperatures hovering between 10 and 15 degrees below zero. If you would like more information on today’s weather, visit our current summit conditions page!

As a reflection of the past year, I’ve compiled the best time lapses that I took in the last year.  From beautiful sunrises to waves in valley fog, I captured many different perspectives over the last year. This is why I love the summit so much-even after if I become jaded by the 130 mile views (which will never actually happen), each day has such a drastically different view due thanks to our ever-changing weather and light. Enjoy!
