Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Alton Weagle Day 

A celebration of first ascents on the Mt. Washington Auto Road!

 

Alton Weagle had a passion for Mt. Washington. To show his passion, he climbed the Mt. Washington Auto Road in a number of unique ways: by car, on foot, walking backwards, blindfolded and finally pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar … just to name a few.

This day honors his spirit and the spirit of all the unique ascents: camels, Segways and even the odd pogo sticks that have been the first up the mountain. Do you think you’re up to it?  

 

We invite you to dream up a “first ascent” of some kind and submit your idea – iyou just may get invited to celebrate with us!

Send us an email with your first ascent idea to info@mt-washington.com
