All participants completing six out of eight weeks are entered into a prize raffle. (Must be present to win, or have a really good friend willing to pick it up.)

1 Mount Washington Auto Road, 

Gorham, New Hampshire

03581


Our experienced SnowCoach drivers will take you to treeline (weather permitting) at 4,200 feet on the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a chance to watch the sun rise. We leave promptly at 6:30 am in January and 5:45 am in February from the base lodge, and will not hold back the trip as we need to keep a tight schedule throughout the day for all our guests. 

Even if we don't actually get to the see the sun rise, you can be sure the early morning lighting at treeline will make for incredible and unforgettable scenes. Although you are riding in a heated van, you should dress warm as you will have an opportunity to get out of the SnowCoach for pictures and to experience the weather on Mount Washington.

Gorham, New Hampshire

The event will begin at noon (facility will open for use at 8:30am) and you can race or skin socially at your own pace -- to any distance you so choose. Those crazy enough to bag the summit will go 7.6 miles and earn bragging rights for the longest vertical foot descent back to the Auto Road Toll House (4,618 feet to be exact). Others can hit treeline at 4 miles (and warm-up in a SnowCoach). Whatever you do, we'll have hot showers, beer, food, live music, and prizes, all back at the Base Lodge from 4-7pm - all as part of one ticket.
