CommentsWildcat Mountain will operate today from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weather/conditions permitting. We plan to spin 4 lifts today with the Tomcat on standby. We'll be hosting the 11th Annual 100,000 Vertical Challenge today down Upper Catapult to Middle and Lower Lynx. Due to the event those trails will be closed as will a handful of intersecting trails leaving us with a total of 39 trails and 182 acres open. Today's forecast calls for a high around 27°F with overcast skies, chances of snow, and light winds. Conditions will be machine groomed packed powder with ungroomed terrain being a wide range of packed powder, loose/frozen granular and variable. The newly made snow on Upper and Middle Polecat got groomed out last night so you can look forward to some smooth turns down New Hampshire's longest green circle. Off-piste there are some sweet skiing lines through the trees now while the untouched stuff still has a bit of crust lurking beneath. There are still some hidden and exposed hazards out there so use caution and stay within your limits. The Wildcat Park on Lower Catapult is open with two jumps and six rail/box features.
It'll hard to beat a weekend like we just had! The weather treated us to one day of comfortable temperatures that were just right to start feeling like spring on Saturday then Sunday brought cooler temperatures and perfect blue skies. The moderating temperatures have gotten the trails in killer shape too, softening up just enough to cruise smoothly without slowing anything down. We picked up a dusting of snow overnight which will touch up the trails a little but really serves as a preview of, hopefully, more to come throughout today and tonight. Today won't be as sunny but with a high in the upper twenties we'll be pretty comfortable for one of the highlights of our season: The 100k Vertical Challenge! Registration filled up pretty early this season so we should have plenty of participants eager to tackle a very full day of skiing. Although it's too late to get in on the action yourself you should still swing by and cheer on the 40 skiers and riders who'll be making runs to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation!
Please note, we want to thank in advance our passholders and guests who may be planning to ski or ride today while we host the 11th 100,000 Vertical Foot Challenge to benefit Make-A-Wish of New Hampshire. For this single event annually, we allow special lift line access on the Summit Quad and the course is only accessible to the limited number of skiers and riders participating in the event. We appreciate your consideration as the challenge helps to raise considerable funds to directly benefit Make-A-Wish of New Hampshire. This year for the event, there will be a need to close sections of the Upper Catapult, Middle and Lower Lynx trails, and any trails that should normally cross over those trails. In lieu of these closures, we are planning to operate the Bobcat lift to provide additional access to the general public that day.
