Vasque Overnight

Vasque Group On The Summit

Saturday marked the last scheduled overnight trip of the winter season here on Mount Washington. The participants of this trip consisted of representatives from Vasque, our official footwear sponsor. Friday morning, the nine precipitants made the arduous journey up the Mount Washington Auto Road. With spring conditions at the base and winter conditions at the top, the trip up saw a mix of precipitation which lengthened their journey.

Once they arrived however, they quickly settled in. While they were here they had the opportunity to tour the Observatory and learn more about the work that we do. Friday evening we were all able to socialize and get to know each other better, which was a real treat. Saturday morning the group was greeted with some intermittent clearing that allowed a view of the sunrise. And after a hearty breakfast the group set off hiking before loading onto the snow cat to head back down.
