Wind speeds on "The Mount" can reach 150 mph and that's normal, being up in the jet stream. I was up there for a weekend when a friend was working up there and it was during the early fall. There was about 5 inches of snow on the ground, but 4 inches of ice on everything. The temperature was 10. They have to go out every few hours to knock the ice off the instruments, and have to be tethered. This particular time the winds were 60-70 and gusting to 100, so needless to say it wasn't too bad. Next day was sunny and 45 and we went down the mountain on the Snow Cat. Wild night on "The Mount."
