Father and Son ride Alpine Slide at Attitash Ski Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire!

The pancakes we had made the previous morning were such a hit that Kristhawee wanted more! Who am I to argue with such an excellent plan? 😉

Today’s plan is to ride up to the top of Mount Washington which, at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) tall, is highest peak in New England! It was another gorgeous day to ride!

Some great roads in the White Mountains and quite a few bikes out and about!

New England is famous for its covered bridges- here’s a good example:

We arrived at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road only to discover that there was a bicycle race taking place that morning and the road wouldn’t be open to the public until afternoon… Oh well, no shortage of things to see and do in the White Mountains!

We followed some bikes back the way we’d come until we reached the Attitash Ski Resort (44.082921, -71.231112)

Lots of activities here in the summer, including mountain biking, bungy jumping, Alpine Slide, Mountain Coaster and a whole lot more. We decided to give the Alpine Slide a try. Enjoyed a scenic ride up the Flying Yankee Quad chairlift- father and son selfie 😉

Hamming it up a bit 😉

Up up we go, back into the White Mountain National Forest-

The Alpine Slide is pretty cool, basically a summertime luge? Over a mile long, the Attitash Alpine Slide was good fun!

After the slide we grabbed an overpriced lunch in the ski lodge- sure feels weird to be in a lodge in the summer time! Then it was time to once again hit the road and make another attempt at Mount Washington!
