Transition Season on the Summit

Ready and waiting for EduTrippers

November is a quiet transitional month here on the Summit. The Auto Road is closed to the public, the Cog Railway hasn’t come to the Summit for a week or so now, the Gift Shops and Food Service area are all closed and cleaned for the winter season, and it’s just three Observers and an our Intern for the month. Tomorrow evening is my night to step up to the stove and cook – Marie Callender where are you when I need you and there isn’t even a Pizza or Chinese place that will deliver to the Summit either.

The Summit has a fresh coating of about three inches of snow and the Valley has even gotten some snow however, not six inches in one storm yet so it’s not too late to get involved in the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce snow contest by guessing when the first storm that brings six inches will be seen. Tickets are only $2 and the person who guesses the closet will receive half of all the proceeds and the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce and the Mount Washington Observatory will split the other half equally. What a great way to have a little fun and support two local non-profits at the same time.

With all of the snow on the Summit, we’re all reminded that the Holiday season is just around the corner and if you just can’t seem to find that perfect gift for that special someone in your life who loves the outdoors, is always up for the next great adventure, and just can’t seem to get enough of Winter and the extreme weather that is can bring, you might want to consider a Winter EduTrip, Day Trip or even a Climbing Trip to the Summit of Mount Washington.
