We have two Observatory Overnights scheduled for the 2017 winter season: January 14 (MLK weekend) and February 19 (Presidents weekend) . Space is limited so please contact us to reserve your spot.

It's hard to imagine a better outing in the White Mountains than an ascent of Mt. Washington with an overnight in the Observatory. On the way up we can ascend the peak by any number of routes. The good news is that when you get to the summit, instead of turning around and wearily hiking back down, you’ll pry open the heavy door of the Observatory and soon find yourself transported to another world.

You’ll sleep in a comfortable bunk and enjoy a nice dinner prepared by the Observatory staff, in addition to snacks and drinks. In the evening you will get a tour of the weather observation room and you’ll have the chance to speak with some of the observers and to learn about meteorology, local Mt. Washington weather and other important work that is done at this unique station. Sleep in until breakfast time, then by mid-morning we’ll begin the trek back down, either via Lion’s Head or possibly Boott Spur.

Our scheduled dates are listed above. However, if you have your own group and are interested in setting up your own trip, please let us know and we can inquire with the Observatory staff. Custom trips like this, even at the last minute, are often possible, so don't count it out. Please give us as much notice as possible and be aware that you will need to make a deposit up front as we in turn need to give one to the Observatory to hold the space.

Cost:
$520 per person. Maximum group size is 9 people, plus guides. Price includes equipment rental, dinner and breakfast in the Obs, plus two days of guiding on the mountain.
