    Very cool. I hiked to the summit about ten years ago during the summer. The temp was in the mid 90's at the base and mid 40's at the summit. Was a lot of fun.

    I know this is an old thread.
    I also hiked through the President Range, following the Appalachian trail. I was there in the summer, August 21 - it snowed!!! So, I can just imagine the winters.


    How did you arrange for the trip, I love the pictures. How long did they let you stay outside?

    My dad arranged the trip for the 2 of us over a year ago. Over 1/4 million people go to the top in the summer, in the winter its less then 100. There should be info on the Observatory's site.

    We took 2 stops on the way to the top for around 5 minutes. Once we got to the top we took a few treks out for about 15 minutes, you physically couldn't stay out any longer. I had 10 layers on and they still insisted I borrow one of there jackets to go ontop of that. Wind chill was -40 the day i went there. Not sure how my D90 made it but it worked great.

    Some cool shots in there. I am a fan of the at 10.5mm fisheye, it's very fun to run around with.
    I jogged up there once in my underroo's, not a bad trip, a bit nippy.

    This is awesome. I hiked it to the top in October of 08 and it was the hardest thing I ever did. It's such an amazing mountain. You've lived what I've always wanted to do, go to the top during the winter in a storm (yes I'm crazy too!) I wanted to hike to the top this winter but it isn't going to happen. I boarded Tuckerman Ravine last winter during the Inferno race, that was a sweet time too! Anyway, great pics!

    I only need to go about 1/2 an hour north to see this place ...

    Sadly, the fastest windspeed ever record USED to be atop Mt. W. (214 MPH I believe) has been supplanted over the summer by a measured gust of 217 MPH during a Cyclone in Australia ...

    If you've never taken "the Cat" up to the top in the winter I'll tell you it's an experience (and the first time you do it you might want to bring a change of pants) ... I love NH!!
