We recently spent our March Break (school break, New Brunswick, Canada) at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel. Despite the fact the room we first checked into was *not* what we expected, we were able to move the next day, thanks in large part to Gwenn (Manager) who was so helpful & kind it made our previous disappointment vanish. We ended up in 2 connecting units, one studio (Murphy bed, sofa bed, kitchen) and one hotel room (2 double beds) so we ended up having more room (2 bathrooms). Thanks again to Gwenn for her outstanding customer service.
The heated outdoor pool & hot tub were fun, and a real treat after a day of skiing, However, Management might want to keep a closer eye on the "yahoos" who drink out of *glass* there (I'm not saying I didn't have a can or 2 of something myself) but there were some decidedly drunk hot-tubbers there one night, drinking out of glass glasses. Why not opt for a Red Solo Cup, buddy?
Breakfast came with the room ... 5 days of it was a little monotonous, but the quality was OK, my only complaint is the bacon seemed greasier than it should be (I know, it's bacon, what do you expect? I ended up patting it on paper napkins to remove some of the excess grease). There was oatmeal, cold cereal, potatos, scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage, pancakes, and a dish du jour (the veggie dish was downright weird, zuchini and raspberry cottage cheese and ???, but the Mexican Steak Lasagne was very good, according to my husband); fruit & yogurt, toast, bagels, muffins, juice, water, coffee - more than enough to satisify anyone. Breakfast left me a little queasy almost every morning but I think that was entirely my fault for eating too much, trying to get a full belly for a good day of skiing.
The ski check worked wonderfully, we coud step our the door and "skate" over to a run which took you directly to the high speed quad to the Bear Peak summit. Some days the grooming was better than other days, but between the runs at Attitash and the runs at Bear Peak, there was lots of happy skiing to be had. Our lift tix were also good at Wildcat (separate review).
Getting from Bear Peak to Attitash is easier than getting back to Bear Peak (FYI). We never bothered with the shuttle. If you are skiing back from Attitash to Bear Peak, you can always take the Abenaki lift and access Bear Peak (high speed quad) that way, from there take Wandering Skis and cut left to the hotel. I mean, how much fun is that?! :-)
Wifi was free and plentiful. TV was fine, rooms came with DVD players, also. Kitchens were standard size (small) but I wasn't there to cook.
Overall, a great family ski trip.
