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.

We visited other mountain parks before this one and it did not live up to our expectations. The mountain coaster loads very slowly. We got there first thing in the morning but the wait was quickly over an hour. It seemed a bit rickety and it didn't really go up well. The ride down jerked you around a lot - not as smooth as others. There were some other attractions but the kids (14 and 18) quickly bored of them. The highlight was the freefall jump into an air bag. Otherwise, too long of lines.

We used the White Mountain Value passes for this attraction - saved a ton of money over the course of the week. This allowed us to leave early without thinking we had wasted money.

I can't believe that the summer portion of the Mountain Village is as popular as it is. We went last week during a relatively uncrowded time. (So I thought.) We were able to get a parking spot on the same side as the resort and the parking lot across the street was nearly empty. We paid the $45 fee for anyone 48" or over. (That's right, the charge is by height, not age.) Once we got in, we waited 55 minutes in line to ride the mountain coaster! They were only loading one car at a time and doing it very slowly. I have been there once before, and this process was different and slower, yet they did not inform us of that. We proceeded to try the alpine slide, after a 40 minute wait. Our next attempt was to go on the climbing wall or the bungee. The lines were ridiculous for each. We tried to ask for a refund and were pointed to the "No refunds" sign on the ticket window. What a scam! We will not go back. They should be ashamed to charge what they do, only to make you wait like cattle with no help from the teenage staff. Awful!

Had to wait on line for ever, within 90 minutes we were able to do 2 rides the rest of the time was waiting on line. We did the mountain coaster once and the alpine slide twice. This took over 2 hours also standing in the sun. Will never go back it was a waste of time and money

I like the indoors and outdoors pools, The wild cat park across the complex is a great location, save time on transportation and food. The game room need to be updated.

This was our 2nd trip to Attitash, the 1st one being 15 years ago. There were many additions to the park. Along with the alpine slide, there is now a mountain coaster, rock climbing wall, splash pool and a tower to jump on to a giant air bag. (I know, sounds weird but our daughter loved it) Recommend getting the general pass and getting there when they open.
