An unforgettable adventure

Driven by 4 tracks rather than wheels, the Mt. Washington SnowCoach transports guests to treeline on the Mt. Washington Auto Road, at approximately 4,200 feet, into a sub-arctic world for a truly unforgettable adventure. All tours are narrated by our expert guides and the SnowCoaches are warm and comfortable.

What to expect

SnowCoaches leave Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and climb about two thirds of the way to the summit of Mt. Washington via the Auto Road, gaining over 3,000 feet in elevation.

Upon arrival at this “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.

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.

Chevy van on steroids!

Really enjoyed the drive up to the treeline. Enjoyed the driver's commentary about the Auto Road's history. Warm and toasty in the van. Was -1 up there and wind was howling and it was awesome! Well-organized, on time. All good!

I had an incredible time.

This is my 4th time up Mt Washington but my first time during the Winter in the snow. Absolutely epic. Our tour guide, Ron, was super knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed hearing his knowledge and stories. If you're just thinking about this .... do it. It's worth it for sure.

The tour guide was amazing.

I've been to Mt.Washington in the past before but it was my first time coming on this SnowCoach tour. I must say it has to be on my top 10 of tours I've ever been on in my life. The staff was super nice and friendly and very helpful. The tour guide was amazing. He taught us a lot of history about our tour on and off the mountain. Inside the gift shop was big and so many selections. The bathrooms were very clean and organized 👌👏
