Local Partners to help you Seek Your Peak this Summer
Winter may have returned to the summit last week, but those of us at lower elevations are thinking of warmer days ahead. Many of our members and friends have been reaching out about when to visit and what conditions are like in the mountains. For Obs staff, the warmer weather of shoulder season means Seek the Peak
is just around the corner.
Seek the Peak is our largest annual fundraiser and this year we have expanded our Expo on Saturday, July 17th at Great Glen Trails to include live music, food trucks and a fantastic group of organizations and companies for our vendor village. Anchored by presenting sponsors Eastern Mountain Sports, Oboz and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center - the vendor village will include sponsors as well as local non-profits who will be showcasing their gear, leading clinics and sharing their mission and work with you.
Many of these organizations can be very helpful as you make plans to hike, run, bike, or paddle your way around New Hampshire this summer. We are so grateful to be working with such an amazing group of outdoor professionals who help keep you and our natural resources safe! A few to check out are: White Mountain Trail Collective, New Hampshire Outdoor Council, Granite Outdoor Alliance, and of course the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC).
If you are looking for specific information about traveling up Mount Washington, below are a few resources for communicating directly with our summit partners. And always remember that summer in the valley can still mean winter conditions at the summit, so keep an eye on the weather with our higher summits forecast and current conditions.
