Winter Trip Opportunities

Starting this month the Observatory has several overnight partner-led climbing trips for those adventurous folks who would like to hike to the summit of Mount Washington in winter conditions. These trips are a great way of meeting like-minded individuals as well as a way to learn winter mountaineering skills from very experienced instructors.
Next month the Observatory begins it’s Winter Day Trips and overnight Winter EduTrips.
Day trips are a perfect way to experience the mountain in winter, see it’s amazing weather first hand and to take a ride in our snowcat. EduTrips are a two day excursion that offer similar experiences to the day trips but also include an overnight stay with the crew. Each EduTrip also offers a different educational theme and is lead by a specialist in the given field. If anyone reading this is looking for something a little different to do this winter, or perhaps for a unique holiday gift, then maybe a trip to the top of Mount Washington would fit the bill?
