New Trails and Lifts to Open

Get ready for Lower Saco, Chicken’s Option, Ammonoosuc, Upper Cathedral and Lower Cathedral, opening on Saturday at Attitash. For Sunday, Cub’s Cut, Kachina and Bearfoot will be open with access via the Abenaki Quad at Bear Peak.
These trails join the other 20 trails already open at Attitash Mountain Resort — including Illusion, which is in beautiful shape, if you have yet to feel the thrill of the double fall lines.

Ticket Prices – One Ticket, Two Mountains

Most tickets at Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain are now interchangeable. That’s right, enjoy classic New England skiing at two mountains in The Valley with the same ticket. All Single Day, Multi-Day Tickets and Military Rate Tickets are valid at Attitash and Wildcat. Sorry, Novice Tickets are not valid at Wildcat.
  • $70 Adults
  • $55 Young Adults
  • $50 Junior/Senior
New this season we are offering a $40 Sunday Steal. Ski and ride Sunday afternoons (12 p.m. to 4 p.m.) for $40 all season (no blackout dates). Got a Vertical Value Card? If you do, you’ll save even more with 25% off non-holiday weekend tickets. That’s a $30 afternoon, not too shabby!

Anticipated Snowmaking

Temperatures have been fluctuating this week, making it difficult for 24-hour snowmaking. We do, however, expect lower temperatures this coming weekend and midweek. Next up for snowmaking we have Wandering Skis, Grandstand, Councilor’s Run, Stoney Brook Bypass, Idiot’s Option, Tim’s Trauma and Myth Maker. All of which we hope to have opening throughout the holiday week, as weather permits.

Be sure to check the Snow Report and the Anticipated Trail and Lift Report for updates.

Open Daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m during vacation week
