Owner description: Winter & Spring Attitash Mountain Resort is more than just a ski area; it is the essence of skiing, snowboarding, and winter lifestyle. Attitash Mountain Resort offers 67 trails across two big, connected mountains that combine traditional New England runs and challenging terrain with modern, wide-open cruisers suited for all abilities. There are also acres of glades and tree skiing and one of New Hampshire’s original progressive freestyle terrain parks. The Attitash Mountain Resort ski school is ready to teach fundamental techniques on accessible learning terrain or coach leading-edge tactics to help you or your family enjoy your active experience and winter passion. The Attitash Grand Summit Hotel is the only slopeside lodging available in the Mt. Washington Valley that offers upscale accommodations. Combine that with a popular apres scene, entertaining events and you’re enjoying winter among the White Mountains at Attitash Mountain Resort. Summer & Fall From summer thrills to breathtaking foliage views, Attitash Mountain Resort is a vacation destination for all seasons. We offer a variety of summer attractions, from North America’s longest Alpine Slide to the Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster, the longest in the Mt. Washington Valley. Summer reached a new level in 2014 as we opened the Attitash ZipTour which has the longest single-span zip line in the contiguous United States. Enjoy the spectacular fall foliage here in the heart of the White Mountains and visit us on Columbus Day Weekend for the two-day Oktoberfest celebration at Bear Peak.

Attitash boasts that they have the longest (>1 mile) alpine slide in North America. It definitely can be a fun ride, but unfortunately Attitash has some problems that prevent this from being a top draw in the Mt. Washington Valley.

First, price. $35/day as of 2008 for adults. Considering neighboring attractions of Story Land and Santa's Village are 30% less and you get a whole day's worth of family fun, this is no deal. If Attitash had more to offer in the summer then $35 wouldn't be bad. But for just the 1 alpine slide (see more info below in this review on this), 2 water slides and a kiddie pool it's outrageous.

Next, long waits. As of July 2008 Attitash is still only running 1 of their 2 alpine slides. The closed one is in need of maintenance and during my 2 visits I saw no sign of any work being done on it. The management there also could not tell me when the 2nd slide would reopen. The problem is this leads to lines of >1 hour for the alpine slide run. On one day I saw families in line for 45 minutes at the base followed by another 1 hour wait at the top. Close to 2 hours wasted for 1 trip down the slide.

No complaints about the water slides. They are a lot of fun! Would be great if they added 1 or 2 more as well as an adult pool/wave pool. There is also the kiddie pool but they are strict to enforce no one over 48 inches in it (other than the parents of the toddlers).

This is a nice summertime resort park. The Alpine Slide is awesome. Unfortunately an hour plus wait is just too much. They need to add a few more attractions. I am not really into rock climbing or the trampoline. It is a nice trip to the summit. I need the park to be less crowded for me to go back...if it is then it will be a must do.
