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 trail conditions on Mount Washington are unpredictable and at times limit our operation schedule.
