Mount Washington Auto Road re-opens due to lack of snow!

Mount Washington’s Auto Road in Gorham, New Hampshire will re-open for guided tours due to lack of snowfall and unseasonably warm temperatures. The road takes you all the way up to Mount Washington’s tree line, which is about half way up the mountain. Auto Road is a seasonal road that closed back in mid-October, but it was able to re-open due to warm temperatures and a lack of snowfall. If the views aren’t enough motivation to make the drive up the mountain, do it to get one of those unique sticks for your car that says “This Car Climbed Mount Washington..In December!”

  1. A ****ing disaster. Definitely going out west for 9 days in February…probably a long weekend before then now because of nonexistent skiing in the northeast.
