We got lucky we were there during a late season storm in Spring 2017. They got 12 inches of powder and the temperatures were not too cold. My daughter and I don't go on any black diamonds, but we found plenty of trails to keep us busy. The lines were short and the snow was great.

We stopped on our way from North Conway NH to Stowe VT here and took the gondola all the way up. Luckily it was a clear day so we had excellent views of Mt Washington on the other side. Also we went during possibly the busiest weekend of the year (1st weekend of Oct) but it was totally worth it!... More

I skied here for the first time and while the overall conditions were not great due to the warm weather before I arrive, the trails that were open were well maintained and enjoyable. The views from the top and while skiing are incredible and well worth a visit.

Many trails are ungroomed and full of moguls. Their "easy" is more intermediate. The views of Mount Washington are amazing !

Wildcat has always had the reputation of being cold and icy. I think the same holds true today. Every time we go it is cold and icy and we are told we hit it on a bad day. Apparently it's great when there's fresh powder. Unfortunately, we have yet to go on a powder day. The tavern is fun with... More

It has probably been 30 years since I last skied Wildcat. At the time their reputation was "cold" and usually"icy". They have done an amazing job enhancing the trails, grooming, and making snow. We were having a great day on the Bobcat lift until they closed it at 2:00 with NO advance notice. That left only the lift to the... More

We love skiing at Wildcat. The views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range are glorious. The lift to the summit is quick and smooth (only 7 minutes!) Lots of trail options for mellow and aggressive skiers, as well as beginners through experts.

This place is great and ski crowds are few! You can go to the top and bottom from Black to Green runs.

My previous impression of Wildcat was a mountain with challenging terrain and frequently icy. Since we were visiting nearby and the temps were up near 40 degrees, I thought we had the weather in our favor to try it out. Definitely accurate reputation about the challenging terrain with some very impressive local skiers ripping it up. No ice while we... More
