A popular choice among skiiers, and located in the heart of the White Mountains, Attitash offers varied winter and summer activities suitable for the whole family.

Attitash has a few good shops to enjoy, but for those in search of some ski or snowboarding apparel, they need not look further than Attitash Sports, which is a full-service ski shop offering jackets, snowpants, helmets, goggles, backpacks, and much more. There are two Attitash Sports shops, one in the Main Base Lodge, their flagship store, and another at the Adventure Center. Visitors need not worry should they forget their gear, Attitash has them covered.


There are a few restaurants to choose from, although there is a greater selection of restaurants and meal options a mere 15 minutes away in Jackson or North Conway.


Apres ski options in Attitash are fairly limited, though there is the Ptarmigan's Pub, which offers two full bars, dining, and live music every Saturday afternoon.

Holiday activities

There are lots of activities at Attitash, apart from the obvious skiing and snowboarding. There is also a miniature water park, an alpine slide, mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding to choose from, which also makes Attitash a popular summer resort too. Attitash also offers visitors new attractions such as the year-round mountain coaster, which is a faster, more powerful version of the alpine slide, a climbing wall, a giant air bag jump, and the East Coast's longest single-span zip-line.

Apres ski options are limited and serious party animals might be left disappointed.
