June 15, 2019. As the first week of summer programming and the Railroad Creek Chamber Music Festival come to a close on this bright and sunny morning, we are sad to say goodbye to all of the wonderful people departing today.. But we also couldn't be more excited to welcome in a new group of Villagers and teaching faculty who will be arriving! The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky and all of the Village creatures are out basking in the sunlight.

National Weather Service (NWS) Cooperative Observer Program (COOP)
Holden Village provides the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration daily readings from our weather station, located next to the Holden School. Weather data is gathered each morning by volunteers and transmitted electronically to the National Weather Service office in Spokane, Washington. This data is also posted in the dining hall, updated on the Holden Web site, and retained for Village records. What is the Coop Program?
If you like historical data click here, select Holden Village, WA and other choices as desired – have fun!
During winter months, Holden checks and posts the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) Forecast and provides avalanche and snow stability test results to the NWAC. If you go, know the snow!
