Military Personnel Ski Free at Attitash & Wildcat Mountain This Weekend

Bartlett & Pinkham Notch, NH – Attitash Mountain Resort will recognize our nation’s defenders and is 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 on Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 24. While all honorary and fun activities will take place at Attitash, Wildcat Mountain, located in Pinkham Notch just 20 minutes from Attitash, will also be offering these same ticket discounts.

On Saturday, January 24, at Attitash Mountain, all are welcome to participate in the on-snow flag parade taking place at 1:00 p.m. Later that afternoon, fun and 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 those wishing to participate 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 safety 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 as exceptional snowmaking temperatures and natural snowfall in January have contributed to exceptional conditions.  

“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.  

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.
