Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Status & Weather 



Current Road Status


As we head toward our last days of operation for the season, the weather will be determining if we are able to open or not.  Normally we will be open to the summit from 8am - 4pm for all regularly allowed vehicles,  except motocycles, weather permitting. Guided Tours operate 8:30am-4:00pm.


Often we will not be able to update this status bar until actually driving to the summit to look at road surface conditions at 8:00am.


We are now closed to motorcycles for the remainder of the season due to the sand on the pavement used during icing events this week.


We will close for the 2018 season on October 21st unless the weather forces us to close earlier.


PLEASE NOTE: Be aware that weather and road conditions can change quickly and this status report is updated frequently.
