YOUR favorite charity or good cause
Pinkham Notch, NH—The second-annual Great Glen Trails Winter Charity Day is an event which celebrates active lives, and promotes the spirit of giving. We invite you to make a donation to the charity of your choice, and then join us on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm for a full day of fun—come ski and snowshoe on our scenic trail system, take some runs on our tubing hill, enjoy a catered lunch, and take an exciting ride on the Mt. Washington SnowCoach. Or, simply join us in our cozy lodge for board games, good food and a fun-filled day with friends, both new and old.

The inaugural Great Glen Trails Winter Charity Day, held in March 2017, raised over $2,500 for 17 local and national charities. This year’s event should grow that number exponentially, and will continue to be an ongoing part of the philanthropic activities hosted by the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. The companies’ events have a long history of raising funds for local charities and non-profit organizations, foremost among them being the Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb which has raised over $1,100,000 for the Tin Mountain Conservation Center, and the Northeast Delta Dental Mt. Washington Road Race which has raised over $100,000 for Coos County Family Health Services.
The family-owned Mount Washington Summit Road Company was formed in 1859, and completed the road to the summit of Mount Washington in 1861. The Mt. Washington Carriage Road, now called the Mt. Washington Auto Road, has the long-held distinction of being America’s oldest man-made attraction. Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, opened in 1994, is one of New Hampshire’s premier Nordic ski areas, with 45 kilometers of trails for skiing, snowshoeing and fatbiking. During the summer months, the Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center focuses on human-powered outdoor activities including kayaking, biking, hiking and trail running. Both companies consider themselves stewards of Mount Washington and the natural areas surrounding it, and feel strongly about supporting our local communities.
