Military Appreciation Day at Attitash/Bear Peak

Every ski season Attitash/Bear Peak hosts a Military Appreciation weekend. Those that have served our country in the military and have an ID ski for free this weekend. Being a Navy retiree I took advantage of this and appreciate a ski resort that extends this courtesy toward our military members. Brand had his 5th grade Snowsports Passport that had one free Attitash lift ticket. We were doing well until he discovered that his ski pants were left at home and we had to purchase a pair in the Attitash ski shop. Oh well, c'est la vie!

We found Attitash to be a lot of fun! It was quite an adventure skiing back and forth between the two mountains - Attitash and Bear Peak. We took time to climb the observation tower on the summit of Attitash. The views were magnificant! We snapped some photos and were soon back on the slope.

After several hours of non-stop skiing the mountain slopes were starting to wear us down. Resting on the chairlift for the ride back up was no longer working. So we took one last run down and skied right to the Bear Peak parking lot. It was a fantastic day of skiing at Attitash/Bear Peak!
