Stony Brook Area at Attitash Mountain Resort
Upon Attitash being purchased by LBO Resort Enterprises in July of 1994, there was talk of major expansion. While work on the Bear Peak development started immediately, there were perhaps more exciting plans - an upward expansion into the vast Stony Brook area between the peaks.|
Topping out at over 2,900 feet in elevation, the summit of Big Attitash Mountain was dramatically higher than the top of the chairlift at the Attitash ski area. Even if a lift were run part way up the Stony Brook, a sizable increase in vertical drop would have been realized. Primary access for the area was rumored to have been provided via the top of the Bear Peak complex.
The expansion plans apparently fell by the wayside when American Skiing Company hit hard times. The United States Forest Service permits allegedly expired sometime during American Skiing Company's later years of ownership, resulting in a quiet cancellation of the expansion.
