Always a reason to limit the customer experience. The Vail group has deprioritized Attitash in the pecking order with selective capital investment as well as not prioritizing the CUSTOMER!! Maybe it's time to bring back a local owner who can bring life back to the mountain!! Bring back yesteryear!!! 45+ year supporter and homeowner
Great terrain and vertical variety
Limited terrain coverage, lousy apre ski activity. Poorly managed
Liam Bakke
It was so fun and I skied a ton of runs with the new lift
Great mountain lots of fun trails and some woods trails, the terrain park is good for beginners and intermediate skiers/riders
Hasn't gotten a lot of snow lately but has been using snow making

Overall pretty good mountain!
I had hoped maybe this year would be different, but little has changed here. Rather than replacing the tired, ancient summit triple chair, Vail corp. has inexplicably replaced a lower mountain lift that virtually no one ever used. Gee… thanks. I will say that there are more midweek lifts open this season than last season, however there is very little terrain open here still, despite several significant snow storms. The snow is on the trails, but they are ungroomed and roped off. What a terrible waste. The terrain that is open is icy and poorly groomed. Most of the surfaces I skied on this past week consisted of hard “death cookies”. Others were simply dust on crust. What is the deal here? If Vail cares so little for this once enjoyable mountain, then why not sell it off? After four or five concurrent seasons of these conditions it appears that things will only get worse. Two positive notes: the lines are not bad this year. I’m guessing the word has gotten out about Attitash’s sad state, and no one wants to ski here anymore. Additionally, Vail has said that they will replace the old summit triple with a high speed lift for next season. Now it just remains to be seen if they can staff the place with potentially more people when and if this all happens. Will there be enough snowmakers and groomers to make the snow skiable? Will there be enough ski patrol to cover the resort’s acreage? Something’s got to give here before this once lovely ski area closes for good.
Shorter lines this year
Minimal terrain open, poor grooming and a new lift that wasn’t necessary.

I know this season hasn't gotten off to the best start, but I've been making the most of it at attitash. The lack of lift lines and the fact that they run every lift 7 days a week is awesome. Snowmaking and grooming has done a great job, there isn't really any ice until the trails get really skied off by the end of the day and 22 runs is pretty good considering the way the weather has been. The progression quad is a great addition and providers a place for progressing beginners or in my case some good runs to get back in skiing shape after ten years of not skiing. The only con is the summit triple, which is very slow. It's being replaced this summer so we won't have to deal with it for long. Also, I don't even bother crossing the street with my gear and I just use the tunnel. I'm glad that it's there but it can be a pain to lug your gear back and forth if you're askier. Not really anybody's fault though as there can be a lot of traffic coming in at 50mph.
Good variety, multiple peaks, all lifts spinning during week days, sense of adventure
The summit triple. Crossing the street or taking the tunnel can be a pain,

Attitash is like that show you hate-watch just to talk to your friends about how bad it is. It’s still skiing so I still have fun, but I’d rather go to any other mountain. It’s now Feb 19, 2022. Bretton Woods, Cannon, Loon, Cranmore and Wildcat are all 100 percent open or close to it. All these mountains are a close drive to Attitash, which is only 60 percent open. I stay at the Grand because my friends have a condo there, so I can’t turn down the Slopeside experience. I took one of the four lifts open and see closed trails covered with mounds of snow waiting to be groomed. The trails that make the hotel ski on/off are closed. That should be the first run they groom and open. I don’t know why they’re making all this snow and not grooming and opening the runs. They also just got 18 inches and are still closed. The main lift is also the slowest one on the mountain. Unlike other people on this page I don’t blame Vail resorts. They bought Attitash in 2019. These problems have existed for years. Attitash thinks they’re a five star ski resort but their size and terrain are undermined by poor management. I’d rather go to no frills mountains like Cannon, Wildcat or Shawnee peak that focus solely on quality skiing and don’t try to be something they’re not. I will likely stay at the Attitash Grand once a year for the rest of my life, but for now on I will forgo the Slopeside experience and give my money to a neighboring mountain. I’m grateful that the Grand is no longer owned by the mountain so I won’t give them money by default.
It’s still skiing
Attitash thinks it’s better than what it is.

Here we are going into February and at Attitash and Bear Peak there are on average 5 closed lifts each week. Trails to hotel still not open and lift servicing multi-million homes still not running. They close major trails for ski race training when only 50% of trails are open and make costly moves like moving a terrain park two weeks after opening one. There is no communication with pass holders from management which is frustrating when we ask questions of staff and receive back a terrible negative attitude. This is not a winning formula and other options are readily available. Stop giving us pass discounts for crappy service and bring back the Attitash we have enjoyed for 30 years past.

Capacity less than 50% going into February

Bummed that I bought an Epic pass this year.
It's like they don't care. Nothing is open and summit chair never works.

We are truly shocked. We thought we were missing something and even an EMPLOYEE said “no it’s like this all the time”. Two runs open. TWO! We were stuck on Bear Peak for an hour because the lift went down with no way back to Attitash. Do not come if you need greens because there is 1 learning center hill. As a blue/Diamond skier you quite literally had ONE run on attitash and ONE option on Bear Peak. We gave up and left. Will never be back, we wished we noticed nothing was open earlier; would’ve asked for a refund. This is so sad.

Everything. No snow, nothing open, slow lifts
michael podolsky
I own a timeshare across the street, ski Attitash for thirty years will not go this year because there are no slopes open for normal skiing , most lifts are broken, no snow making, no grooming. Good by Attitash , hello Sunday River.
best mountain in New Hampshire
