Wildcat Opens 16/17 Season on Thanksgiving
Pinkham Notch, NH - Wildcat Mountain will kick off the 59th winter season with the most vertical skiing and snowboarding in the state of New Hampshire and among the most in the Northeast. Cold temperatures and some measurable natural snow will allow skiers and riders to enjoy over 2,000 vertical feet of top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding beginning on Thanksgiving Day and into the holiday weekend.
“We're absolutely thrilled, and of course thankful, to be able offer what amounts to be an exceptional top-to-bottom skiing experience on opening day,” stated Brian Heon, General Manager of Wildcat Mountain. "To be able to offer guests this much vertical terrain before December reflects highly on the abilities on our snowmaking crews and groomers. What a way to start the season!"
Traditionally Wildcat Mountain has been among the first ski resorts in New Hampshire to open and has been the last to close for 11 consecutive seasons offering up the longest ski season in New Hampshire.
Wildcat will open Thursday, November 24, 2016 and currently plans to remain open for the duration of the 2016/17 season. Skiers and riders will be able to ride the Wildcat Express Quad to the summit and enjoy over 2,000 feet of vertical on the Upper, Middle and Lower Lynx Trails.
"Our snowmaking upgrades over the past few years have helped us make a consistent, quality snow while allowing our teams to move quickly from one trail to the next. "Heon added that the team will concentrate on the upper mountain before heading down to the lower mountain sections.
