2022 Seek the Peak Photos
Thanks to our 2022 Seek the Peak fundraisers, sponsors, volunteers, Vendor Village exhibitors, and visitors, our 22nd annual event was a huge success, helping us raise an impressive $175,000!
 
That’s a critical portion of our annual budget and will help sustain Mount Washington Observatory's work in mountain meteorology and climate science.
 
Mount Washington Observatory is celebrating 90 years this fall, and Seek the Peak is a critical fundraising event to keep our nonprofit going another nine decades.
 
Next year, Seek the Peak will return on July 14-15, 2023. We look forward to seeing you there!
