Winter On Mt. Washington

Mt. Washington is "home of the world's worst weather." The 6,288 foot mountain earned this moniker because of its extreme weather conditions and changeability. Many climbers, backcountry skiers, and hikers have been surprised by the sudden change in conditions. Host Willem Lange witnesses firsthand the whipping wind, snow and bitter cold of Mt. Washington from the safety of the Weather Observatory's snow-cat on a ride to the summit.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 48 seconds
