Seek the Peak 2016

Friday, July 15, 2016


Welcome Seek the Peak hikers!

Follow these links for additional information about the event schedule, prizes, and more!

We invite you to Seek YOUR Peak in 2016 ... While many hikers will choose the challenge of summiting Mount Washington, others will opt for alternative mountain treks, or may even prefer a short "nature hike." Some may just want to support the Observatory as "virtual hikers," or simply join for the weekend festivities. Register today by using the register link on the right.

Registrants are asked to raise a minimum of $200 as part of their participation; in turn they are awarded with fabulous prizes and more! Be one of the first 500 to raise $200 and earn a Seek the Peak Eastern Mountain Sports backpack and exclusive Techwick Seek the Peak T-shirt.

There is a lot more to Seek the Peak than summiting Mount Washington...the weekend is full of great activities and giveaways, including:

  • Prize giveaways each month building up to the event
  • Kick-Off Party and Registration at the Weather Discovery Center
  • Observatory Weather Station tours on the summit of Mount Washington
  • An Expo featuring premier sponsors Eastern Mountain Sports and Vasque along with several other vendors showcasing and giving away product samples
  • The famous After Party including a massive gear giveaway and Hart’s Turkey dinner
  • Special rates on mountain bike tours with The Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center

All while supporting the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory with pledges which in turn will earn you prizes!

Grab your pack and join us: Mount Washington is calling!

Premier sponsors include Eastern Mountain Sports and Vasque Footwear with support from Channel 8 WMTW - Maine's Total Weather & News, 93.5 WMWVFairPoint Communications,, and White Mountain Oil & Propane.
