Personal note from the hotel's General Manager...

"The Mt. Washington Cog Railway is a do not miss experience while vacationing in Northern New Hampshire or Vermont. While everyone wants a perfect "blue sky day" to ride the cog. One of my favorite personal experiences riding the cog with my family was on an overcast day. The temperature was 20 degrees lower on the summit and the winds were almost hurricane strength. The multi-generational pictures of us all leaning into the wind laughing were better than seeing any mountain range."
