Where to Go Snowmobiling in the White Mountains
Mt Washington Snowmobile Rentals
Mt Washington Snowmobile Rentals offers both rentals and guided tours. If you aren’t familiar with the area, we recommend taking a tour. They offer one-hour, two-hour, three-hour, or half-day (four hours) tours. The Cog Railway Half-Day Tour includes a cog train ride halfway up Mount Washington. It’s perfect for first-time visitors looking for a unique experience. The Mount Washington Half-Day Tour shows you a lot of the area and is better suited for more experienced riders. The Three-Hour Presidential Traverse Tour takes you over Jefferson Notch and the infamous Presidential Range. It’s available for all abilities and anyone at least 10-year-olds. All tours include a snowmobile, a helmet, fuel, and a guide.
Snowmobile rentals start at $105 for a single snowmobile and go up from there depending on the day of the week, the amount of time you’d like, and the type of snowmobile. You’ll also have to pay a collision damage waiver. Each rental includes a snowmobile, a helmet, and a map. Mt Washington Snowmobile Rentals is located at the base of Mount Washington at the Bretton Woods Station.
