New Years Eve on the Summit of Mt. Washington!

For the second year in a row I have had the pleasure of co-leading a special overnight trip for the Mount Washington Observatory with my wife, Michelle. This event is an amazing educational, adventurous, and culinary experience. Yes, I said culinary.

Observatory members (and brain-childs of this event) John Bauhs and Ed O’Malley volunteer their time and expertise to present a 9 course gourmet meal that easily makes this one of my most memorable meals ever. The fact that it is shared on the summit with a tight knit Observatory Staff and supporters make it all the more special. Enjoy the slideshow, and Happy New Year!

About David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the Whites and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the USMC, and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a Single Pitch Instructor. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of Mountain Rescue Service. When David isn't out guiding he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, backcountry skiing, trying to cook something new once a week and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle, son Alex, and daughter Madalena.
