Attitash Mountain Resort Celebrates 40 Years of Sliding & Summer Fun in New Hampshire

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Alpine Slide and summer operations at Attitash.  Back in the summer of 1976 the mountain featured the Alpine Slide, The Alpine Garden – a Bavarian-style restaurant serving up luncheon daily, and a series of 11 small buildings where craftsmen produced and sold a variety of items at the mountain called the Craft Village.

“The alpine slide is an amazing attraction that still after all of these years is one of our most popular attractions,” stated John Lowell, President & General Manager of Attitash Mountain Resort.

When the Alpine Slide made its debut it was called the “Super Slide” and was 4400’ long. Today there are two slides stretching over a mile long providing guests the longest ride in North America.

Guests visiting Attitash Mountain Resort this summer will also be able to enjoy attractions such as the Mountain Coaster, three water slides, a children’s play pool, slacklines, a eurobungy trampoline, a giant airbag free fall, and New Hampshire’s longest single span zip line the ZipTour.

“The ZipTour is thrilling and in three years easily has become our most popular addition to our summer offerings,” Lowell stated. “The adventure is truly one of a kind, and we’re proud to offer visitors a very unique view of the surrounding White Mountains.”

Guests can also choose to enjoy the Attitash Mountain Resort grounds on the saddle of a bike or horse.  Attitash offers over 20 miles of mountain bike terrain on both Attiash & Bear Peaks as well as numerous cross country trails. Those with bikes may access the trail system via lift by purchasing a General Admission ticket. Attitash also offers a full fleet of rental bikes & equipment inside the base lodge for guests wishing to get out on the mountain.

Across from main resort are the Fields of Attiash where guests can reserve 30-minute or 60-minute horseback riding tours given by trained handlers.  Children can also get up close and ride a pony. Horseback rides can be reserved by calling 800-223-7669 or now online at attitash.com.

The Attitash Grand Summit Hotel located at the base of Bear Peak has been recently upgraded with all new guest room furniture, carpet and new pavers throughout the entire front entrance.  Vacation packages including admissions to not only Attitash attractions but other area attractions such as Storyland, Santa’s Village and the Conway Scenic Railroad are available throughout the summer.

General attraction park tickets can be purchased in advance for a discount, and guests can now reserve times for both horseback riding and ZipTour adventures at attitash.com. For questions or for more information guests can call 800-223-7669.

Snowmaking Improvements for 2014/15 Winter Season Exceed Initial Project Expectations at Attitash Mountain Resort

Attitash Mountain Resort’s off-season capital improvement projects have exceeded initial plans announced last spring and will significantly increase the efficiency and output of its snowmaking system for the coming 2014/15 winter season. A majority of the improvements have been made on Bear Peak, including Morning Star, Snowdancer, Wandering Skis, Kachina, Avenger, Moonbeam, Trillium and Mythmaker trails, as well as the Abenaki Terrain Park.

The project included the installation of new snowmaking water and air pipes, rebuilding of pumps and motors and the installation of a combination of 285 new, high-efficiency, low-energy HKD and Snow Logic brand snow guns, 179 more guns than originally planned. These new state-of-the-art guns will dramatically improve the ability to produce greater amounts of snow while increasing the efficiency of the snowmaking system. The installation of the 179 additional snow guns increased the amount invested in the snowmaking upgrade by more than $770,000, in addition to the $1 million investment initially announced last spring.

The new guns are capable of producing greater amounts of snow in both marginal and ideal cold temperatures using less energy and are easier to operate than older snow gun technology. This summer’s snowmaking improvements follow the previous year’s $1.3 million Thorne Pond rejuvenation project, a major snowmaking water resource for Attitash.

“We will be focusing even more attention to the quality of our product this season,” said John Lowell, President of Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain. “Peak Resorts’ increased investment this off season in the snowmaking infrastructure and new snow gun technology will be a ‘game changer’ for Attitash Mountain Resort’s snowmaking efforts. We are very excited for what this means for our customers this coming season.”

In addition to snowmaking improvements, Attitash has acquired a new $300,000 Prinoth snow groomer, two new shuttle buses and a new van for transporting guests between Attitash and Bear Peak base areas, parking lots and the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel.  Attitash also added over $80,000 of new Burton snowboard equipment to its rental inventory.

Attitash Mountain Resort, located in the Mount Washington Valley, will celebrate its 50th Anniversary during the 2014/15 ski season, having first opened for skiing on January 26, 1965. Offering two distinct mountains, Attitash and Bear Peak, it is known for its signature terrain parks, ski school and children’s programs, terrain for all abilities, après entertainment, family value, and quality slopeside accommodations featuring the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel.

Attitash & Wildcat 14/15 Season Passes On Sale Including New 19-29 Granite Pass

 

Attitash Logo Black Wildcat Logo Black

All New Passholders Ski or Ride the Remainder of This Season Free

Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain are pleased to announce early season pass rates for the 2014/2015 season and introduce a new, significantly lower-priced Granite season pass for the “twenty-something” age category that has no college requirements. At an early rate of $399, the new 19-29 Granite pass is for skiers/riders age 19-29 years and is valid for use at Attitash Mountain Resort, Wildcat Mountain and Crotched Mountain ski areas with no black-out dates.

“This new lower-priced pass will keep skiing and riding an affordable activity for an age demographic that can be financially challenged. They are finishing school, finding themselves taking on new financial responsibilities, establishing early careers, often with entry-level wages or salaries, and generally living and moving further away from the support of parents,” said Attitash and Wildcat Mountain President John Lowell.

“Generally speaking, our sport sees a gap in regular participation from the time skiers and snowboarders are introduced to skiing and riding with parents and family until the time they are young parents themselves, introducing their kids to skiing and snowboarding,” said Attitash and Wildcat Director of Marketing Thomas Prindle. “It’s a fact that your lowest median weekly wage or salary earnings as an adult is when you are in your twenties…statistically even less than when you are 65 and older. It makes sense that we should try to retain more skiers and riders and offer an appropriately priced season pass for this age group. Our industry has lower priced college and senior season passes because of these lower-income earning age demographics, I think we are now putting an affordable pass product in front of the group that may need it the most.”

The Adult Granite Pass (age 30 – 64) early rate, if purchased on or before June 1, is only $629 with no blackout dates and is valid for use at Attitash, Wildcat and Crotched Mountain, including their “Midnight Madness” night skiing on Fridays and Saturdays in season when they are open until 3 a.m. Rates, information, and additional benefits for all season passes, including Classic, Midweek, Military and the Live Ski & Ride College Pass, are available and can be purchased online at attitash.com or skiwildcat.com. As an added benefit to all new pass holders who purchase their pass now, they have the bonus of skiing or riding the remainder of this 2013/14 season for free. Attitash is scheduled to remain open and operate daily until Sunday, April 6. Wildcat Mountain has not set a closing date as it looks again be the last ski area in New Hampshire to be operating lift-serviced skiing and riding for the eighth season in-a-row.

Snowmaking and Infrastructure Improvements Highlight “What’s New” for the 2013/14 Winter Season at Attitash Mountain Resort & Wildcat Mountain

wildcat attitashSummer attraction operations remain in full swing at both Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain, but major improvements and investments for the 2013/2014 winter season are being made at both ski areas as fall approaches. 

Attitash Mountain Resort will host its 16th annual Oktoberfest on Columbus Day weekend at the base of Bear Peak this fall. Across the road, on the other side of Route 302, a major rejuvenation project costing 1.3 million dollars is taking place at Thorne Pond. “Thorne Pond is a major resource for Attitash especially for our snowmaking water. Ever since Tropical Storm Irene, the available water and in turn our snowmaking systems have been compromised by the excessive silt left by that weather event,” said John Lowell, President of Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain. “A major rejuvenation project is underway in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Services that will restore the original capacity of the pond. More importantly, it will clean up the sediment on the bottom of the pond making the water crystal clear and less detrimental to our snowmaking pumps.” Also during the off season, another quarter million dollars of capital money is being spent on major lift maintenance projects for both the Summit Triple and Top Notch Double lifts. Additionally an entirely new fleet of HEAD rental skis has been purchased that will improve the rental process and skiing experience for customers. Looking ahead to the 2014 summer, Attitash is hoping to expand its year round attractions and is well in to the late planning stages for the construction of two major zip lines. Approval has been granted from the Town of Bartlett and U.S. Forest Service. The Zip Tour experience would offer a 5000 foot zip line from Bear Peak to Attitash. That would currently be the longest single span zip line in the continental US. A second zip line of 3000 feet would return the riders to the base of Attitash. The final decision is expected this fall.

Wildcat Mountain completed its planned project and spent over $55,000 to remove the old summit gondola building that had long been abandoned for use and not maintained prior to Peak Resorts acquiring Wildcat. “We’re pleased to have finally completed the removal of the old summit gondola building and to have fulfilled the request made by the U.S. Forest Service when Peak Resorts obtained its land-use permit,” said Brian Heon, General Manager of Wildcat Mountain. “I feel our passholders and all other visitors will appreciate the restored natural beauty at the summit.” Heon added that an additional quarter million dollars is being spent this season upgrading the network of snowmaking pipe on the mountain and upgrading the snowmaking pumps. One of the greater benefits of this investment will be improved snowmaking capacity and efficiencies mountain-wide, especially on the Polecat trail. Another significant project for this season at Wildcat is a new dedicated Ski Patrol building in the base area.

Additional on-mountain improvements for the 2013/2014 season include Attitash Mountain Resort continuing to build up and brand its terrain park on Bear Peak. The new “Abenaki” terrain park introduced last season and situated on Lower Myth Maker and Kachina trails remains a priority for Peak Resorts. A central crew of innovative park groomers and cutters and custom fabrication shop will continue to develop and maintain the progressive freestyle terrain area, including the delivery of 8 new rail and box elements. Wildcat Mountain, for a third year in a row, continues to improve and reclaim the approved glade and tree skiing areas. Peak Resorts is committed to the tree skiing at Wildcat Mountain and Attitash Mountain Resort and is improving areas aggressively, responsibly and consistent with U.S. Forest Service guidelines.

In addition to annual donations, other opportunities to help raise funds include events on and off the snow. On the snow, one example is the Attitash U Go Girl race series that helped raise $1,700 to benefit local organization Jen’s Friends Cancer Foundation that provides supplemental financial assistance and other resources to cancer patients and their families in the Mount Washington Valley. Also notable this past season, Wildcat Mountain hosted its annual 100,000 Vertical Foot Challenge and participants of that were able to collectively raise over $133,000 in pledge donations to set a new event record high donation

Off the snow, Attitash and Wildcat hold an annual season passholder party at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel where attendees can enjoy complimentary food, beverages, raffle door prizes, DJ & dancing. While having fun and socializing is the primary objective to attend, one of the highlights of the annual season passholder parties has been both the silent and live auctions to benefit local organizations. This past winter, specific items and services from both Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain were designated to benefit AbilityPLUS Inc. adaptive ski program, Bartlett Recreation Department, or the Berlin Recreation Department. Some of the items included vintage trail signs, large trail maps, season passes, photos, and custom-made ski furniture donated by SkiChair.com. This year’s event saw Attitash and Wildcat season passholders raise a combined total of $7,722 to benefit the three organizations.
