The Snow Rangers at Mount Washington Avalanche Center are continuing to look for ways to better serve you. This year, we reached out to over 1100 people at free outreach events and delivered 161 range scale avalanche forecasts since May 11. These forecasts reached over 103,000 people for a total of almost 500,000 page views and the month of May only just started. Additionally, 21,000 people used our new observation page and 6,500 people used the new daily snow plot information from Hermit Lake, Harvard Cabin and, new this year, Gray Knob on the north flank of Mount Adams.
We want to continue to improve at every level and we need your financial help to do so. If you use our forecasts, talk to us about snow and avalanche conditions or appreciate our new website format and useful weather information found there, we are psyched! We have several initiatives underway to help you make good decisions and to help us, help you when things don’t go as planned. We are asking for one time donations or a smaller but recurring donation to support the initiative of your choice.
