In winter, when the road is closed to most vehicles, you can still reach above the treeline of Mt. Washington via a guided tour in one of these SnowCoaches departing from Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, just south of Gorham. Tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Great Glen's nine-passenger vans are refitted with snowmobile-like treads. You have the option of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing down or just enjoying the magnificent winter view.
