    Good to hear the hotel did well. By all accounts it's been a great summer tourist season, so I guess I was wrong that that property was underutilized during the summer months. Maybe I'm just looking at it from my own personal preferences, but summer or winter, I think I'd prefer staying across the street in AMV. They basically have the same onsite amenities regarding pools and what not, but have the benefit of being right across the street from the mountain activities as well as having the Saco at the back of the property to go and explore. Summit is ski in and out though, which would be better for families during winter.

    Do they offer a free shuttle from the hotel to Attitash proper in the summer?

    They do have a shuttle on the weekends I believe. Been a while since I've stayed there as I too would rather stay across the street. AMV is more bang for the buck, plus my week timeshare is at AMV so I'm partial

    We stayed at the Attitash grand a couple times since the kids were born. It is an excellent option for young families, the combination of the pool, breakfast buffet and north conway. In fact, we rented a cottage on Conway Lake in August, wife said she would prefer to go to the Grand next year for the pool.

    We never found the rooms to be dated or the walls thin; also good that nobody hassles you for having a few cocktails in the pool. Biggest complaint is location, there is no midweek beginner terrain on the bear peak side, you end up driving to the Attitash side which defeats the purpose of staying slopeside.

    I just generally dislike Attitash, probably my least favorite 1000+ vertical mountain in northern new england. I have never hit the place with the trees open and the only interesting terrain is off the triple, you spend the better part of an hour getting from the hotel to anything you actually want to ski. Actually prefer to ski Crotched.

    May try the Grand at Mt Snow for vacation next year but concerned there will not be enough non-skiing activities for the family, should probably start another thread.

    I think the best terrain is on the Bear side. They have a couple of good marked and unmarked tree runs and some good long cruisers. Yes there is no real beginner slopes on that side midweek. I try to avoid the main side if I can. Lines and lifts are slow (except the quad which only goes 1/2 way up.)

    Said it many times, but if they replaced the Triple and groomed less terrain, I'd spend much more time at Attitash. I think Ptarmigan, Tight Rope, Tim's and Idiots are all great advanced runs off the top, it's just unfortunate they groom all of them and it requires the awful Triple to access them.
