Take a ride aboard the SnowCoach
3/29/2014: Our SnowCoaches have closed for the season, thanks for a great winter!
A winter tour on Mt. Washington is absolutely unforgettable. Thanks to the Mt. Washington Auto Road, you can come to Great Glen Trails and ride the SnowCoach, which is your ticket to Mount Washington’s world above treeline. Winter brings a whole new set of sights and sounds to the White Mountains: the crisp mountain air, the crystal blue skies, the soft crunch of new snow. And, the SnowCoach is the best way to experience them all. A specially constructed all-wheel drive and unique 4-track system allows the SnowCoach to deliver you to the world above treeline at the 4.5 mile mark on the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a truly unforgettable experience. For the adventurer in you, the SnowCoach gives you the option to cross country ski, telemark ski or snowshoe down the Auto Road.
SnowCoach tours last approximately 1¼ hours and depart daily, weather permitting, from December through March from Great Glen Trails on a first come, first served basis. Operating hours are approximately 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, depending on weather and road conditions (shorter hours 8:30-2:30 early in the season). Please visit our Snow Report, for daily operating status.
The SnowCoach is also available as part of the Trails Total Ticket, so after your trip you can explore the tracks and trails. Every Monday and Friday* of the season is two for the price of one (with coupon)! Click here for more information and coupon. Not valid on December 27 & 30 2013 and January 20, February 17 and 21, 2014.
The cost for this winter sightseeing experience is $45 for adults and $30 for children ages 5-12. Advance reservations are not available due to unpredictable weather and road conditions.
