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 backward, 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 – you just may get invited to celebrate with us!
