Welcome and thank you for visiting our website developed in partnership between the US Forest Service's Mount Washington Avalanche Center (MWAC) and the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol (MWVSP). The goal of this site and our organizations is to increase visitor safety on Mount Washington during the snow covered months.

The MWAC is operated by the Androscoggin Ranger District of the White Mountain National Forest and is the only American avalanche center east of the Rockies. With the rich history of skiing and climbing here, it is also the oldest forecasting program in the country.
