Bartlett, NH - Attitash Mountain Resort is now open 7 days a week from 10am to 6pm and starting this Saturday will host the Mountainside Music Series every Saturday at the Attitash Base Area.
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 Slides, The Alpine Garden, a Bavarian-style restaurant serving up luncheon daily, and the Craft Village, a series of 11 small buildings, where craftsmen produced and sold a variety of items at the mountain.
“The alpine slide is an amazing attraction and after all of these years is still 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.
This weekend's Mountainside Music Series features Millwall Bricks on Saturday and a special Sunday performance featuring local cover band - The Dean Machine. In its fourth season, the Mountainside Music Series provides live performances on an outside stage for guests every Saturday from 3pm - 6pm through Labor Day Weekend.
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 Attitash & 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 Attitash 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 residential units receiving new carpet, new dining room furniture and lounge chairs, upgraded wifi and new HD cable & TV service. In additional all guests staying at the hotel will also be treated to a hot breakfast each morning included with all stays.
