#375: Chelsea Jackson — Living on the Summit With the Worst Weather in the World in Winter!

Spread the love

Chelsea Jackson is an avid hiker and trail runner who works for the New Hampshire State Parks on the summit of Mt. Washington!

Mt. Washington is notorious for having the “world’s worst weather” and consistently has days where windspeed is over 100 mph. The summers can have major temperature swings when storms blow in (or as Chelsea calls the storms…”Impending Doom”) and the winters can be absolutely brutal with extremely low temperatures on top of crazy powerful winds.

Chelsea has a very unique experience of living and working on the summit through the busy summer season but also the isolated winter. In this episode we hear all about how she made a major life transition and took a major leap to pursue this job, what the day to day life of living in extreme weather is like, and how trail running led her to this adventure!

I hope you enjoy!!
