Mt. Washington SnowCoach

Climb aboard for a comfortable winter tour to an extreme world above treeline!

The Mt. Washington SnowCoach is a uniquely-designed winter tour vehicle which climbs up to treeline (el. 4,200 feet) on Mount Washington for a one-of-a-kind adventure anyone of any age can enjoy!

Current operating status

Powered by a custom 4-track, all-wheel-powered drive-train, the 9 passenger Mt. Washington SnowCoach transports guests (weather permitting) into a treeless, almost sub-arctic world at about 4,200 feet for a truly unforgettable yet safe experience. Upon arrival to the turnaround point, passengers are invited to exit the SnowCoach for photos and video opportunities before climbing back aboard for the downward journey back to the base.

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.
