No Winter Shelter on Mt. Washington Summit

New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation reminds individuals hiking Mount Washington this winter that there is no open shelter or windbreak at the summit. The summit building, operated by Mount Washington State Park, is closed from November to April.

State officials encourage winter hikers to plan climbs accordingly and be prepared to hike down as well as up. The weather is always worse in higher elevations and weather can change unexpectedly. For more information about safe hiking practices please visit
