Great trail system, waiting to bring my kids back next year. Great grooming and great snow. Today was windy and snowing. They offer great other options like a winter ride up to summit and tubing.

Climbing Mt Washington by snowcoach is certainly a great way to go up the mountain, especially in the winter. We were lucky with the weather, no clouds or wind. We rode comfortably in the coach as it ascended to 4,000 feet. The mountain vistas were...More
