Quick Details

All passengers

A unique adventure

For years, our team has dreamt of ‘a perfect storm’ of weather and road conditions to bring guests to the peak by tracked SnowCoach. Typically, our winter operations top out at 4,200′ of elevation. Right now, the road conditions and weather pattern provide the chance to make this dream a reality.

Now is our chance! Join us for a unique public SnowCoach expedition to the summit of Mt. Washington.

Passengers will have the chance to attempt this tracked guided tour to the summit at 6,288′! New and returning visitors alike will enjoy this extra special elevated experience.

What to expect

General Manager Tobey Reichert and Operations Director Kevin Devine will lead SnowCoaches from Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and attempt to climb to the summit of Mt. Washington via the Auto Road, gaining over 5,000 feet in elevation. Along the way, they will teach you about the flora and fauna, history, and memories made in their time at the Mt. Washington Auto Road.

Upon arrival to the summit, 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.

At times views can be breathtaking overlooking the protected Great Gulf Wilderness and the Presidential Mountain Range. At other times passengers can experience the extreme wind and snow conditions Mount Washington is so well known for, all while the warmth and safety of the SnowCoach are just steps away.

Please note that tours are always conducted “weather permitting.” Snowshoeing or skiing down the Auto Road is not permitted on this unique trip.
