This year, Oboz Footwear partnered with Mount Washington Observatory to get our footwear on the feet of people working in the toughest conditions in the lower 48. The Observatory is at the summit of Mount Washington, the highest peak in the northeastern U.S., elevation 6,288 feet. Mount Washington is in New Hampshire in the White Mountain National Forest and boasts some of the planet’s most severe weather, including the world record for wind speed: 231 MPH.
We asked the staff at the observatory to give us a glimpse into their life this time of the year.
