The SnowCoach Photography Adventure is an enhanced SnowCoach experience offered for participants interested in photographing the remarkable Northeast ridges of Mt. Washington in winter weather.
Professional photographer Joe Viger will be your guide on this small group outing where you will have the opportunity to connect with other photographers, experience extreme winter conditions at treeline and have the help of a pro as you make photographs in this amazing, winter landscape.
The Adventure starts with a briefing by Joe before we board the SnowCoach for a 1 hour 45 minute trip to treeline on the famed Mt. Washington Auto Road. Photography techniques, gear, Auto Road history and the winter landscape will be the topic of constant conversation while we make our way up the mountain.
Depending on conditions, the group will have a chance to take photos in the alpine environment at the top of the tour, around 4,200 in elevation. When we return, the group will engage in facilitated discussion and image review to share our experiences and explore what we’ve learned.
Note: Due to the nature of the extreme winter weather on Mt. Washington, photo opportunities and locations on the Auto Road are subject to change without notice and at the discretion of tour leaders.
Reservations are required.
