How can you reach the peak of the highest mountain in the Northeastern United States in the middle of notoriously unpredictable winter conditions? A "SnowCoach" has the ability to bring guests from Pinkham Notch up to the highest peak in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Mount Washington. The SnowCoach is a white van that travels on four triangular tracks rather than wheels to make the steep climb up and down the snowy Mt. Washington Auto Road where guests can experience breathtaking winter-white vistas. Reservations are required for SnowCoach tours and can be made at greatglentrails.com/ booknow.

Another bipartisan effort to legalize marijuana in New Hampshire is underway, according to state lawmakers. David Boyer, a Maine consultant who helped lead his state’s legalization campaign in 2016, said that New Hampshire is behind Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine who have all legalized marijuana. Supporters say that outcomes for next year’s session appear to be "predetermined<" and if the bills reach the Senate, they will likely get voted down or face a veto by Governor Chris Sununu. State Sen. Bob Giuda, a Republican who lead the anti-legalization vote in 2019, said it's a "myth" that "everybody wants this," adding that it's not good for our kids in the midst of "a mental health and Covid crisis" saying that it also produces "respiratory problems."
