Get an Abbreviated Forecast and Current Summit Conditions Via TEXT / SMS

Cell service, especially data services can be extremely unreliable in the White Mountains.  We have launched a texting service that will hopefully be more accessible when exploring the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Text us before you head out on the trail to get a forecast and stay safe.

For up-to-date forecasts and weather conditions, simply text to 603-356-2137, standard text rates apply. 

Available Commands

weather  :  response will show conditions currently on the summit of Mount Washington

forecast  :  response will show an abbreviated version of today’s Higher Summits Forecast

radar  :  response will show the latest National Weather Service (NWS) radar animation if available. NOTE: This response uses MMS, and will not work without a data connection.
