Ed will talk about the history of Mt. Washington – one of the most loved, easily accessible and storied summits on Earth – as well as the history of the Cog Railway, the Carriage Road, skiing in Tuckerman’s Ravine plus several little known anecdotes and stories about Mt. Washington. The presentation is also illustrated with archival original photos.
Mt. Washington sees three major weather systems frequently collide on its summit producing one of the planet’s highest wind speeds and has a reputation for having some of the world’s worst weather.
