A winter tour on Mt. Washington is absolutely unforgettable. Thanks to the Mt. Washington Auto Road, you can go to Great Glen Trails and ride the SnowCoach, which is your ticket to Mount Washington’s world above tree line.

Winter brings a whole new set of sights and sounds to the White Mountains: the crisp mountain air, the crystal blue skies, the soft crunch of new snow. And, the SnowCoach is the best way to experience them all. A specially-constructed all-wheel drive and unique 4-track system allows the SnowCoach to deliver you to the world above tree line at the 4.5 mile mark on the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a truly unforgettable experience. For the adventurer in you, the SnowCoach gives you the option to cross country ski, telemark ski, or snowshoe down the Auto Road.

SnowCoach tours last about 1¼ hours and depart daily, weather permitting, from December through March from Great Glen Trails on a first-come, first-served basis. Operating hours are 8:30 am to 3:30 pm, depending on weather and road conditions (shorter hours 8:30-2:30 early in the season).

Royalty Inn guests can save $10 per person per tour during any non-holiday Sunday through Thursday. Simply ask for the coupon at the Royalty Inn Front Desk. Welcome to the Royalty Inn!
