Attitash and Wildcat School Ski Safari

and Wildcat School Ski Trips, View from summit of Wildcat ski area in New Hampshire at early winter

The Birthplace of Skiing in the US

New Hampshire is known for being the birthplace of skiing in the USA, with an excellent standard of ski school and a friendly atmosphere. Wildcat and Attitash are located in the Mount Washington Valley, in the east of the protected White Mountain National Forest.

The snowy peak of Attitash has a range of trails including big cruisers ideal for mixed ability groups. Beginners will find progression just perfect with half the trails dedicated to intermediates.

Wildcat is a fantastic independently owned resort where all staff will go out of their way to help – as they say; great location, great snow, great food and great people! For all those reasons it’s also great for school groups too. There is an abundance of manageable trails for nervy beginners with every trail ending back on the valley floor. There are some lovely cruiser trails including “The Lynx” voted favorite trail year on year and perfect for intermediate groups.

City stopovers in New York or Boston can also be arranged at the end of your stay to make the most of your time in the USA.
