Beautiful views! It was my first time to Mt Washington and we were there on a Wednesday. The line ups for all the lifts were at least half an hour plus. There was often 1 person on a 6 seat chair lift and there could have easily been 2 people even with keeping safety protocols, so that was extremely inefficient and maddening. Also, they do not accept cash at the restaurants and eateries which is incredibly inconvenient as I never carry a credit card. I can't say I would return to this mountain, at least during COVID and if they remain cashless.
