It’s been a rough season so far for Attitash. Staffing issues, warm weather, rain, lack of open terrain, poor snowmaking, and alleged mismanagement by Vail Resorts has put the ski area under a microscope.
I’ve been keeping tabs on the Vail Resorts properties in New England considering all of the negative buzz circulating the internet, and today I noticed something interesting in Attitash’s snow report:
“Snowmaking is working on Lower Saco/Ammo, Grandstand/Lower Moat, and moving off Trillium/Moonbeam to Wandering Skis. Thanks to our sister resorts, Heavenly, Vail, Crested Butte, and Northstar, we can run all three systems, sending snowmakers to support our team. If you see jackets from other resorts today, give them a high-five!”
This is actually fairly positive news for Vail Resorts, in my opinion.
Sending snowmaking employees from other resorts to help Attitash get the guns blowing is awesome. It should improve the ski experience for the Epic Passholders in the region, and ease some of their complaints.
Prime snowmaking conditions should persist at Attitash throughout the rest of the week with overnight lows dipping to single digits and lower.
Here’s to hoping the extra hands in the snowmaking department help Attitash open up some more terrain. They currently have 4 of 7 lifts open, and 41 of 68 runs open.
