If you use the Mt. Washington Auto Road to access backcountry ski terrain this spring, please realize that you are heading up to one of the most fragile alpine areas on the east coast. You can help preserve this unique habitat by how you park your vehicle and how you access the ski routes.
Please park only in the recognized parking lots and not along the sides of the road. If the smaller parking areas near the top are full, you should continue to the summit parking lots.
Help protect the fragile plants of the alpine zone landscape. Stay on a trail or step carefully from rock to rock, avoiding any plants, shrubs or grasses.
