Aerial Drone Policy
Out of concerns for the safety of our guests, employees, and resort property, the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or aerial drones, by the general public, including recreational users and hobbyists as well as media and journalists, without prior written authorization from Auto Road management
This prohibition includes drones for filming or videotaping, as well as any other drone operations over all Auto Road private properties. This prohibition on drone operations or use applies to any drones launched or operated from Auto Road private property but in the spirit of safety and the public's desire for quiet recreation, we also request that drones legally launched from adjacent properties also not be flown over Auto Road private property.
Any authorized operation of aerial drones may be governed by Federal Aviation Administration rules and regulations, local law enforcement, and/or U.S. Forest Service rules, as well as those policies separately established by the Auto Road, which may include certification, training, insurance coverages, indemnification requirements, and waivers or releases of liability.
Any violation of this policy may be prosecuted and may subject violators to damages including but not limited to, damages for violations of privacy, physical or personal injuries and regulatory fines and legal fees.
Please contact Howie Wemyss, General Manager, if you have any questions.
