Eastern Mountain Sports to Partner with Mount Washington Observatory

Eastern Mountain Sports has partnered with The North Face and VAGRANTS to create the second film in the Made Back East collection. The film, released on October 15th, highlights landscape and wildlife photographer Shaun Terhune of Littleton, New Hampshire.
“I was thankful and thrilled to see that this film really did capture something of the spirit of this exceptional region I love so much… Wild places like these can really only be saved and preserved if the larger public appreciates them,” says Terhune.
VAGRANTS is a Production and Filmmaking company based out of Boston, Massachusetts. Quotes Director Jack LeMay: “I was hooked by the challenge of (the White Mountains) bony granite, the majesty of their ancient forests, and the rare glimpse of their awesome wildlife. I found Shaun’s photography a couple years ago and could sense that shared curiosity and passion radiating from his images.”

Eastern Mountain Sports to Partner with Mount Washington Observatory

As of March 1, 2021, Eastern Mountain Sports will continue their ongoing partnership with the Mount Washington Observatory, a climate research center located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Eastern Mountain Sports will serve as the Official Retail Outfitter of the Observatory for a three-year term, extending its longstanding partnership.
“The summit of Mount Washington is home to the world’s worst weather and wind speeds of up to 231 miles per hour. So it’s both an honor and an obligation for EMS gear to stand up to the challenge when it comes to outfitting the observers and staff up there. They do incredible work,” says Kerry Muricchio, Head of Merchandising at Eastern Mountain Sports.

Eastern Mountain Sports is Dog Friendly

As of May 2021, Eastern Mountain Sports will allow dogs in their retail locations. This policy, designated by decals at the entry of the stores, encourages customers to shop with their (leashed) dogs. “The outdoors are best enjoyed with family and friends. At EMS, our dogs are a part of our family! So it only made sense that we invite our four-legged family members too,” says Kerry Muricchio, Head of Merchandising at Eastern Mountain Sports. Twenty EMS stores (excluding their Manchester location, located in the Mall of New Hampshire) will promote this policy until further notice. The stores will also provide water bowls for customers to hydrate their companions.
