Winter Season is Over! Summer Starts in June

Thanks for another memorable season with us here at Mount Washington Alpine Resort. We are now closed for the winter 2023/24 season, reopening for summer activities in mid-June 2024. All mountain slopes and terrain are officially closed to the public; for everyone's safety, please avoid trespassing as our teams actively work with machinery around the mountain on end-of-season projects. Thanks for your cooperation! We can't wait to see you this summer.
