Welcome Mount Washington Observatory to Ice Fest!
« Reply #8 on: November 13, 2017, 07:31:34 AM »
We'd like to welcome the Mount Washington Observatory to this year's event! As climbers and guides, we depend on their forecasts on a daily basis throughout the winter and we are psyched to have them with us at Ice Fest! They will be live streaming the summit conditions and giving us the run down on what sort of weather to expect out there. Read more about the OBS, its mission, and its history at http://www.mwv-icefest.com/blog/.

When Does Your Season Begin?
« Reply #13 on: November 30, 2017, 09:22:29 AM »


When does your season begin? With Furnace Industries it never has to end with their Kronos Tools and their indoor training Dry Ice Tools. We're psyched to have these guys back and they will be at the Ice Fest to help you rethink when you want your season to begin, or perhaps how it should never end!
