SnowCoach Tours 

Join us this winter for a comfortable winter tour to an extreme world at treeline on Mount Washington!

Driven by 4 tracks rather than wheels, the 12-passenger (we typically seat only 7- 9 persons) Mt. Washington SnowCoach transports guests up to treeline on Mt. Washington, at approximately 4,200 feet, into a sub-arctic world for a truly unforgettable adventure.


  • Tickets sales start at 8:30am on a first come, first serve basis, weather permitting

  • Advance reservations are now available for 9am and 10:30am most days.  We do also “set aside” one Coach for walk-ins at 9:00am and 10:30am

  • All other tickets are sold first come, first served as guests arrive throughout the day
  • Due to the popularity of these tours we urge you to arrive here as early as possible (we generally open at 8:30am – sometimes earlier)

  • Tours are approximately 1.5 hours in length

Mt. Washington SnowCoaches leave the base area of the Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and climb up about 4.5 miles, or two thirds of the way to the summit.

Upon arrival at the “Top of the Tour”, passengers are invited to exit the SnowCoach for a few minutes for photos and video opportunities before climbing back aboard for the downward journey back to the base (you can also snowshoe down if you choose!).

At times views can be breathtaking overlooking the protected Great Gulf Wilderness and the Presidential mountain range. At other times high winds and snow can be experienced allowing passengers to witness the extreme conditions which Mount Washington is so well known for. At all times the warmth and safety of the SnowCoach are just steps away.


Although we plan to operate every day on a first-come, first-serve basis, the weather and road conditions on Mount Washington are unpredictable and at times limit our operating schedule. You can call us at (603) 466-3988 to get the latest detail from our friendly staff or you can check our website for the current operating status here>>


Want to make sure you have a seat?

We offer advance reservations for one of the FIRST tours of the day (9:00am) and often offer reservations on a 10:30am tour as well. Please note that reservations are affected by the same mountain conditions mentioned above.
