    Exactly. For a lot of the resorts with big hotels, the resort is the only game in town, so if there is ANY summer traffic, the hotel can at least compete. The Grand at Attitash can't compete during off seasons and in the ski season there is one of the best ski towns in New England 20 minutes away where you could stay instead.

    At first glance a hotel 'just' 20 minutes outside of Conway doesn't sound like a bad idea. Very different in practice though!

    Agreed, especially with how many lodging options there are in Conway or at least closer than 20 minutes away.

    The reality is that the Grand Summit isn't big enough nor nice enough to attract the critical mass of people there to support nice amenities like a good restaurant and spa.

    In a way it reminds me of Stowes old hotel at the toll house. It just didn't have the scale to attract many people there outside of the weekends and holidays. Too small to make it work that far from town. Then they build Spruce and it works due to it's size and amenities.

    If Attitash built a bunch more lodging at the Bear Peak base, then the Summit could probably support a decent restaurant and re-invest in the health club and Spa.

    During ski season, I spend the night in Bartlett regularly and it has never occurred to us to go to the Grand Summit for dinner and Matty B’s isn’t a draw for us. Too many good options towards Intervale and Jackson.

    Matty B's is just fine for beers and a pie when I'm staying at AMV, no driving necessary. Plus the pool is in the building as well.
