On the morning of April 12, 1934 (exactly 78 years ago today), the strongest natural wind velocity ever measured was recorded on the top of Mt. Washington, NH...it was an astounding 231 mph wind! And on this date ever since, Big Wind Day has commemorated the event. Mt. Washington, the highest peak in New England (at 6,288 ft), claims "the worlds worst weather" (bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow and record wind)! Although not a ski resort, adventurous back-country skiers trek to the extreme ski-mecca, Tuckerman's Ravine (and other parts of the mountain), where numerous hazards make skiing a challenge even for the most expert of skiers. According to the Appalachian Mountain Club (and others), "Tuck's" is the East coast's answer to extreme skiing!
Combine the world's worst weather, the world's strongest wind, and extreme skiing hazards...and you can make your own assessment of skiing here. But, here's a house where, right from the comfort of the living room, you can see that wind-swept summit of Mt Washington...and with a good pair of binoculars, maybe even witness some of that big wind swirling around. Here's the view of Mt Washington from the house:
Since 1932 the Mount Washington Observatory has been monitoring the elements at the rocky, windswept summit of Mt Washington (seen in the view above).
The house itself is actually a converted "camp" called Camp U-No...
You'll need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to this rental house (in winter)...but it looks comfortable, with a lot of privacy and outdoor space....just watch the wind.
