What is the usual weather in mid to late October? Me and some mates are planning to hike Mount Washington via Lions Head, in mid to late October for our Duke of Edinburgh award. We are planning a hike to the summit, then back to a base camp at one of the camping grounds (have yet to decide which one), then back to the base. We will pitch camp first before we go to the summit. If there is bad weather coming we will just hunker down at our camp and hope it clears up for a climb to the summit the next day. So what is the expected weather and snow pack at this time of the year, as well is there a suggested route, and campsite?

Any response would be appreciated thanks!
