why don't the upper management go to Bretton woods and see what a real good ski resort
does to keep riders coming back I am an Epic pass holder I paid four times to ski there
because you have done such a poor job at both your new sites IE they put bag storage outside you have a rat infested mini shed They made snow and groomed you waited till
school vacation week to open your runs They put in a new lift you keep your old lifts shut
down and make navigation impossible I have Skied here for 25 years Would like to hear
from you on how you are going to correct the poor poor job you did this first year I am looking into Bretton's season pass IT will add 1 hr and may cost more but it may be worth it

Thanks Vail Corp for running a once lovely ski area into the ground.
It’s late January and maybe half the terrain is open. We’ve had little natural snow, but management couldn’t care less. Too cheap to make it. I guess Vail figures it already has pass holder’s money, so why bother?
Three lifts open midweek and tremendous lines as a result. Abenaki chair isn’t running, so traversing back from Attitash peak to Bear peak means literally hiking.
If you want to ski, don’t come here. The focus here under Vail management is simply to separate skiers and riders from their money. Absolutely shameful.... Full Review
Disappointed. I don't blame Attitash, I believe Vail is the issue. Last year this was my favorite mountain. The scenery, the views, the trees and the trails were all a big part of making it my favorite mountain. Unique trails compared to other mountains and they had a few parks that were a good size for me. This year, it's almost February and they are still only half open. The trails that they did have open were ALL moguls. I'm a snowboarder and don't want to only ride moguls the entire time. It became only a workout rather than a ride. I had to stop so many times and there were so many people falling all over the trails. They had one "park" which was a box and a rail and you had to hike it back up to get out of it. It was ridiculously crowded as well. 2 lifts open and waited in 30/40 minute lines and then the main lift took almost 20 minutes to get up. Did 2 runs and left to go back to the hotel. Didn't even go back the second day as planned. What I don't understand (and this is every Vail mountain I've been to this season) is if they are "limiting" crowds, why are the crowds worse than ever before? Sorry to non passholders, but I think that Epic Pass holders only should be allowed, no ticket sales. Let the people who were proactive and spent the $600 plus enjoy their time on the mountain. This season feels like it has been ruined. ... Full Review
Simeon needs to green light the snowmaking! There are pipes and nozzles but they seem to be not making it. It’s a tragedy. 1/2 the trails are closed! Open this place up! Get to work!... Full Review
Climate change has been unkind to an otherwise great and underrated resort. They didn't appear to be making much snow on a lot of their terrain (not sure why) but what was open was great. I was pleasantly surprised at how long some of the runs were and that it was uncrowded. Nice steep stuff on Bear Peak and a nice lodge to take a break at the base. Would love to come back when some of their gladed tree runs are open, those looked very fun. ... Full Review
I would be embarrassed if I was Vail. Purchasing a money pit like this, you can see the miss management, the lack of care for the infrastructure, and most of all the lack of professionalism by their employees, at any particular part of their resort a person not paying attention, except on their cellphone, lifts suck and food is blahh, they had a pretty decent onion soup, rest was frozen. I'm not going back, especially for 79 dollars... Full Review
The main chair, which I have dubbed the “stop and slow” makes me want to rethink my pass for next season. I feel I miss half the mountain because I don’t want to spend 12-15 minutes on a chair that stops at least once every trip and is slow as molasses ( I may have just insulted molasses). On the positive side, very nice intermediate level runs and wider trails than wildcat and some others. Grooming is also good. People are friendly. Beware the chair. ... Full Review
The buddy ski school is a joke, 1.5 hour line when pre registered online. Twin 5 year olds and sitting in line for 1.5 hours you can imagine how they were. Our son is autistic which we noted on the form and the woman checking him in has never heard of autism and couldn’t understand what it was. It was dreadful a lot of unhappy parents. Next was our wait for 40 mins in line for lift tickets. One window open out of 6. I do believe they just did not have enough people working. The only place you saw a lot of if employees were the lines at the lifts checking for tickets. ... Full Review
This was a wonderful season and the skiing was superb. Having the triple down was hard. My family members love going to the summit and they were speaking negative about Attitash because of the malfunctioning triple. I love to ski at Attitash. Hopefully we will get the triple going.... Full Review
Will not consider a season pass due to lift problem history.
