BARTLETT, NH - The Attitash Grand Summit Resort Hotel and Conference Center, the Mount Washington Valley's only full service slopeside hotel, is offering a unique spring Ski and Stay Package.
Available April 4 through May 31, skiers and riders who wish to venture to Tuckerman Ravine on the southeast face of Mount Washington can reserve a Tuckerman Ski and Stay Package from $79 per person per night based on double occupancy. The package includes lodging, breakfast, boxed lunch and shuttle service to and from the Ravine trailhead.
Shuttle service is available on weekends only departing at 7:00 a.m. and returning at 5:00 p.m. Guests may visit www.attitash.com or call (800) 223-SNOW for reservations. The Attitash Grand Summit Resort Hotel is located adjacent to the Attitash ski area in Bartlett, NH just 30 minutes from Pinkham Notch and the Ravine trailhead.
Mount Washington has a well-deserved reputation for extreme weather conditions. It is recommended that guests new to backcountry skiing or Tuckerman Ravine inquire with the forest service before venturing out. The Valley is also home to a wide variety of guide services in addition to mountaineering stores, which offer equipment and know-how.
"Spring skiing on Mount Washington is a big draw," said Alec Behr, manager of the International Mountain Equipment shop in North Conway. "Along with that comes the need to be informed about the high mountain environment. The International Mountain Climbing School offers guided tours, equipment and local knowledge for those heading into the Ravine or elsewhere in the backcountry."
