              Get Out and Play in Mt Washington Valley



Tis the season to get out and play in the snow in Mt Washington Valley. How? Here are five great ways to enjoy outdoor adventure throughout January on the trails and off!

Whether on skis, snowcoach or via ice ax, enjoy one of these unique adventures this winter.

From the top of the world! Take a trip to the top of Mt. Washington with the Mount Washington Observatory. The Observatory’s  Winter Day trips offer the chance to get to the top of New England’s highest peak in the winter. Enjoy a ride up the mountain in the Observatory’s snowcat, take a guided tour of the Observatory and meet Marty, the official summit cat, then enjoy lunch with the scientists and volunteers who live and work atop the peak before heading down the mountain in the afternoon. For those who want something longer, the Observatory offers Overnight Trips as well.

From the Seat of a SnowCoach: Travel up the  Mt. Washington Auto Road via the one-of-a-kind  SnowCoach. A specially constructed all-wheel drive and unique 4-track system allows the SnowCoach to deliver you to the world above treeline at the 4.5 mile mark on the Auto Road for an unforgettable winter experience. For the more adventurous, the SnowCoach offers the option to XC ski, telemark or snowshoe back down the Auto Road. SnowCoach tours last approximately 1.5 hours and depart daily, weather permitting, December through March from Great Glen Trails on a first come, first served basis.

Atop a wall of ice: Want the thrill of getting to the top using your own two feet and hands? Mt. Washington Valley is home to three renowned climbing schools – International Mountain Climbing SchoolEMS and Northeast Mountaineering

 – all of which offer guided mountaineering and ice climbing trips to Mt. Washington and the surrounding Presidentials.

From the back of a Dogsled: Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel, based in Jefferson offers a variety of year-round dogsled rides. Many of the dogs at Muddy Paws are rescued or second chance dogs, and they are ready to take you on dogsled rides ranging from two to fifty miles, including overnight trips. Best of all, the tours are hands-on and interactive, so you get to drive the sled too! Join Muddy Paws for a trip based out of their education center in Jefferson, or choose a trip departing from one of their off-site locations, including the Omni Mount Washington Resort at Bretton Woods. Rates for dogsledding tours vary depending on location, distance and group size, so call 603-545-4533 for more information, or check out their website for more information.

From the seat of a snowmobile: Whether it’s gliding through peaceful pine woods, on the state of New Hampshire’s hundreds of miles of trails (which go right through Mt Washington Valley) or across open meadows, Mt Washington Valley is one place that’s ideal for snowmobile adventures. Mt Washington Valley is lucky to have many snowmobile outfitters offering rentals, guided tours and sales of sleds and accessories. And now with all the snow on the trails, Christmas Week will be the ideal time to plan a snowmobiling getaway into New Hampshire’s North Country.
