MOUNT WASHINGTON, N.H. (AP) — It may still be warm outside, but the Mount Washington Observatory is accepting bookings for day and overnight trips for a closer look at its heavy snow, freezing fog and strong winds during the winter.
Observatory "DayTrips" bring participants to the summit via the observatory's snowcat along the Mount Washington Auto Road. At the summit, participants will get a tour of the mountaintop weather station, an in-depth look at the observatory, lunch and time outdoors to see some of the world's worst weather.
Overnight programs will include topics such as mountain photography, climate change and winter mountaineering in the observatory's' "classroom in the clouds." Day and overnight trips run from early January into March and can cost from $329 up to $999.
