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 the base of the Auto Road at 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.

Winter fun

We took the Snowcoach up to 4200 feet and then snowshoed part of the way down. It was a tremendous experience and our driver was awesome. Even though it was snowing and windy, the views were breathtaking. Highly, highly recommended.

Everything about the trip was great. Our driver Bruce had so much information about Mt Washington and was great at answering all our questions. The weather was perfect too. Definitely will do it again.

Reserved for 2/12/2022 ... I had an incredible time. This is my 4th time up Mt Washington but my first time during the Winter in the snow. Our tour guide, Ron, is a gem. Go do this!
