New High-Altitude Expedition Weather Forecast Website

Posted on: March 5, 2008

I just wanted to inform everyone about a new online weather forecast service at that provides reliable forecasts, information and advice for expeditions to remote, high-altitude locations. The site is run by academic researchers in climatology, mountain meteorology, mountain hydrology, tropical glaciology and avalanche forecasting who are also mountain guides, photographers, and mountaineers. I know I won't be climbing K2 anytime soon, but now I can at least see when the weather windows typically are in case I ever do get the chance.

Here at Alpinist, our small editorial staff works hard to create in-depth stories that are thoughtfully edited, thoroughly fact-checked and beautifully designed. Please consider supporting our efforts by subscribing.


Does anybody know the website with good and long term weather forecasts for Himalayas (especially Lhotse at this moment)? Regards, Monika
