Route 302 - Bartlett

Phone: 603-374-2600 or 877-677-7669


Mount Washington Valley offers only one ski resort with two mountains combining all the best New England skiing has to offer - on a scale that will keep you family active and exploring for days on end. A mountain built on granite bones, clothed with towering pine and boasting the expansive breath-taking vistas that only the White Mountain National Forest can provide. Where the view from the top is twice what you've imagined. And the routes down offer endless possibilities - from classic-cut, winding trails you remember from your youth to wide-open cruisers where your own kids can discover the joy of skiing.

As the lift crests the first ridge, the mountainscape doubles-half the resort is hidden in plain view. And it only takes a few runs to discover why Attitash creates such hardcore loyalists. Together, the two mountains provide 77 trails and natural glades, New Hampshire's only 500-foot superpipe and a terrain park unmatched in the Valley- all supported by a service driven staff and the most powerful snowmaking system in the state. The mountains of Attitash consistently deliver the most rewarding experience winter has to offer. Ski in and ski out at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel, the only slopeside hotel in Mount Washington Valley. Until you've skied

Attitash, you haven't skied the Valley.

SKI Magazine ranked Attitash in the top ten Eastern resorts for snow quality, grooming, and weather. In their Resort Guide 2013, they were named in the Top 20 Ski Resorts in the East
