The Mt. Washington SnowCoach is a custom-designed tour vehicle which climbs up to tree-line on Mt. Washington (approximately 4,200 feet) for a one-of-a-kind adventure.
Powered by a 4-track, all-wheel-powered drive-train, the 9 passenger Mt. Washington SnowCoach transports guests (weather permitting) into a treeless, sub-arctic world for a truly unforgettable adventure which anyone of any age will enjoy!
Operating hours are approximately 8:30 am to 3:30 pm (8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. early in the season), depending on weather and snow conditions. Guided winter tours aboard the Mt. Washington SnowCoaches are approximately 1¼ hour long and depart daily from December through March from the Great Glen Trails base lodge at the base of Mt. Washington on a first come, first served basis.
Mt. Washington SnowCoaches leave the base area of the Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and climb up about 4.5 miles, or two thirds of the way to the summit. Upon arrival at the "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 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.
