Science in the Mountains: Breaking the Ice: The First Winter Scientific Expedition to Mount Washington
Dr. Peter Crane, Curator, Gladys Brooks Memorial Library, Mount Washington Observatory

This winter marks the 150th anniversary of the Huntington-Hitchcock Expedition, which was the first to spend a winter atop Mount Washington. Led by two geologists, the 1870-1871 adventure occupied the summit to explore and document the mountain's remarkable winter weather. The expedition paved the way for the U.S. Signal Service weather station on the summit, and served as the inspiration for re-occupying the summit by the Mount Washington Observatory in 1932.
