Hey All,
I had a chance to go to Pinkham Notch on Monday March 5th 2007.
The Great Glen offers a Snow Coach Ride 4.5 miles up the Mt Washingto Auto Road, just above Treeline they say (though I think a little shy of TL).
4200 Feet. Then you can ride back down the Coach or Snow Shoe or Xcountry ski down. Can you all say Fun!!
So I did just that, It was white out and Blizzard Conditions on the sideof Mt W.
I took some (unsteady) video of a small portion of the day, you may click on the link below to see what the Ride up was like and at 4200 on a windy snowy afternoon on the Mt.
After this day I envy the workers even more up on the top.
Everyone keep up the Great work!
Cool?
Rick

That is really great. I have never done the Auto Road so this gives me a new perspective.
