Attitash is a go ahead resort that has spent big and doubled in size in recent years, thanks to the attitude and investment of The American Skiing Company, owners of half a dozen ski areas in New England, plus Steamboat in Colorado and The Canyons in Utah. Although this remains primarily a ski centre with little or no resort of its own to talk of beyond the base lodges and the impressive Grand Summit slopeside hotel; Attitash is located within the busy Mount Washington Valley which has a great range of independent shops, bars and restaurants as well as other ski areas, so it's a good base for a varied US holiday with a wide choice of on and off slope activities. Attitash means blueberry in Abenaki Indian. The resort holds a world record for the world's larges on-snow human flag. 314 participants wearing red, white and blue ponchos gathered to form the famous Stars and Stripes at Attitash in December 2001.
Go ahead resort incorporating arguably the world's most advanced lift ticketing system and the excellent Perfect Turn tuition method - giving tuition virtually on demand and at whatever time or number of lessons suits you - to your required skiing level.
