Keep the Whites Wild continues to oppose new harmful development in the alpine zone on Mount Washington including The Cog’s Lizzie’s Station proposal.
Keep the Whites Wild is a non-profit organization based in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Our mission is to preserve and protect the diverse biology, natural aesthetic, and intrinsic value of New England’s White Mountain region.
Our Protect Mount Washington campaign launched early 2017 in response to a proposal by The Mount Washington Railway Company (The Cog) to build a luxury lodge in the alpine zone. This beautiful and fragile area on Mount Washington is one of the most unique landscapes in New Hampshire.
While The Cog has abandoned the luxury lodge plan, they’ve proposed a new development in the alpine zone on Mount Washington called Lizzie’s Station. Keep the Whites Wild continues to oppose new harmful development in the alpine zone on Mount Washington including the Lizzie’s Station proposal. New development in the alpine zone has negative environmental, aesthetic, and public safety impacts. We continue to support Marshfield Base Station as an alternate lodging location for The Cog.
Keep the Whites Wild is also concerned about the master planning process currently underway by the Mount Washington Commission. We urge the Commission and Partners to stop development sprawl and make the health of the alpine zone one of the highest priority items in the Master Plan.
