Bring on Spring!

It's that time of year, when our thoughts turn to steam drills, culverts and bulldozering. Don't yours? Well, they should because it's time to start getting the Mt. Washington Auto Road open for the season.

We had a terrific winter on the mountain as many, many guests joined us aboard the SnowCoach. Some of our visitors had never been to Mt. Washington. Others had been up the Auto Road in the summer and were amazed by the changes that winter brings. But, now it's time to clear away the winter snows and get ready for summer. Each spring, the Road Crew works diligently to clear the Road, so we can open in mid-May.

The Road Crew's first foray up the Road will be on Tuesday, April 6. This will allow for more melting down low and give the Crew the time they need to get all the equipment ready. Be sure to check back here for all the latest on the progress. We'll also be posting pics and video of the opening process.

For a look back at what it took to open the Auto Road last season, be sure to check out the blog archive at left.

Again, we're aiming for a mid-May opening, but it all depends on the weather. We'll have a better estimate as we start working.
