Mount Washington Observatory Partners

Over the years, we have come to learn that there is a great deal that can be achieved through partnerships. Mount Washington Observatory is proud to be associated with the companies and organizations described below and we salute each of them for their support.

Adventurous Joe Coffee
Adventurous Joe Coffee is proud to be the Official Coffee of Mount Washington Observatory, providing our staff with its sustainably produced organic, Fair Trade precision-roasted coffee. In addition, Adventurous Joe Coffee provides free brewed coffee to fuel attendees and participants at a number of Mount Washington Observatory events including the Observatory's "Seek the Peak" hike-a-thon. With shared values for environmental responsibility and the outdoors, Adventurous Joe Coffee is committed to sustainable practices and excellence in specialty coffee and to the active, healthy, adventurous lifestyle.
Cog Railway
The Mount Washington Cog Railway is a key partner and neighbor on Mt. Washington. Beginning in 2009, the Cog Railway generously donates a portion of each rail ticket to the Observatory in exchange for free admission to our Mt. Washington Museum for all rail patrons.
Cranmore Mountain Resort
Health and wellness of employees is an important area for any company to focus on. It's especially true for an organization that faces the demands of the non-profit world and the forces of Mother Nature. In 2008, Cranmore joined in support of the Observatory by offering free Cranmore Family Fitness Center memberships to all of our full-time employees.
Eastern Mountain Sports
Eastern Mountain Sports is proud to be the Official Outfitter of Mount Washington Observatory, providing our staff with rugged gear that withstands the rigors of life and work in the Home of the World's Worst Weather. With a shared passion for the outdoors, Eastern Mountain Sports is also a presenting sponsor of the Observatory's Seek the Peak hike-a-thon, and has led climbing trips to the Observatory's summit weather station since 1995. Through authentic experiences, credible expertise and gear that performs no matter what, Eastern Mountain Sports is committed to the mountain life.
Eaton is proud to be the Official UPS (uninterruptible power supply) and Battery Back-up Supplier for Mount Washington Observatory, helping sustain its 80-year weather record and making sure its weather recording is not disrupted. When working in some of the worst weather conditions in the world, power outages are common—which can mean losing precious weather data even when the power's only out for a few seconds. The Mount Washington Observatory also takes advantage of Eaton's on-site preventive maintenance services as well as Eaton's remote monitoring service that continually collects UPS performance data and sends status messages to Eaton's 24x7 remote monitoring command center.
Eastern Mountain Sports Climbing School
For many years, the Eastern Mountain Sports Climbing School has helped adventurous outdoor enthusiasts literally reach new heights. The EMS Climbing School leads several winter climbing groups to the Observatory each year.
Mt. Washington Auto Road
One of our closest partners, the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center grant the Observatory permission to use the road, and share a maintenance facility with us at the base of the mountain. The Auto Road also generously donates a portion of each vehicle entry fee to the Observatory in exchange for free admission to our Mt. Washington Museum for all Auto Road patrons. Since 2006, the Auto Road has also sponsored free admission to summer visitors at our Weather Discovery Center in downtown North Conway.
Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce
There is no greater resource for promoting tourism in the North Conway area than the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber works tirelessly to promote our incredible region, drawing visitors from across the nation and around the world to the region's ski areas, restaurants, lodging facilities, shops and attractions. Together with the Chamber and the Mount Washington Radio Group, the Observatory helps produce Mount Washington Valley Visitor Information Radio, which can be found at 95.3 FM in the greater North Conway area.
Subaru of America
Subaru is the Official Vehicle of the Mount Washington Observatory, and we are proud to be Subaru's longest standing nonprofit partner. Subaru's support helps fund our traveling outreach programs, bringing the science of weather and climate to classrooms around the region. Subaru has been a presenting sponsor of Seek the Peak, the Observatory's annual hike-a-thon, since its inception in 2001. Subaru also generously donates the use of two brand new, fully wrapped Subaru Outbacks each year.
Vasque is proud to be the Official Hiking Boot Provider of Mount Washington Observatory, offering unsurpassed comfort and durability for some of the hardest working feet in New England. Vasque is also a Gold Level sponsor of the Observatory's Seek the Peak hike-a-thon, where they provide incredible prizes and support to the more than 500 passionate individuals who scale Mount Washington's summit each year in the name of the Observatory.
