If your family is all about the thrill rides, one of your summer road trips needs to be to ride the Alpine Slides at Attitash in Bartlett, NH.

Attitash Bear Peak is a quick two hour ride from Central Maine and definitely worth the trip. If you're a big skier, there's a good chance you've done Attitash bear Peak in the winter...  This is your chance to do it in the Summer!  Set at the base of Mount Washington, the resort's most popular, and oldest, attractions are the Alpine Slides.

For over 40 years, people from around the world have been cruising a mile down the mountain at nearly 30 miles per hour.
