Bartlett, NH – Attitash Mountain Resort in Bartlett will recognize our nation’s defenders by offering free lift tickets for active, veteran and retired service men and women as well as discounted lift tickets for active duty family members with proper identification this Saturday and Sunday. While all honorary activities will take place at Attitash, Wildcat Mountain, located just 20 minutes to the north in Pinkham Notch, will also be offering these same ticket discounts.
On Saturday at Attitash, everyone is welcome to participate in the on-snow flag parade taking place at 1 p.m. Later that afternoon, entertainment featuring The Jonathan Sarty Band will take place in Ptarmigan’s Pub beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday features the annual Battle of the Branches GS Ski Race. A fun race for all ages, participants will select which branch they are representing and their points will go toward each branch to determine a branch winner.
“Our ski resorts are proud to offer our military personnel and their families the opportunity for a fun-filled weekend on the slopes at a minimal cost. There is no real way to say thank you for putting your life on the line for our country but we feel this is the least we can do,” stated John Lowell, President of Attitash & Wildcat Mountain.
Guests visiting Attitash Mountain Resort this weekend can expect to ski and snowboard on over 80% of its terrain thanks to snowmaking temperatures and natural snowfall.
“Our snowmaking team has been working tirelessly and Mother Nature has helped out a bit as well. Currently our on-mountain product is as good as it gets and we’re still making snow around the clock,” stated Lowell.
For those looking to stay for the weekend the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel, offering slopeside accommodations at Bear Peak, is offering a 20% discount on lodging to military personnel for the weekend and still has limited availability. Call (888) 554-1900 for reservations.
