The Wildcat All Mountain Team 2015/16 Seasonal Program is now available at the lowest rate. Purchase before June 1, 2015 to lock in your child 4-16 years old at the lowest rate. Visit http://skiwildcat.com/child-seasonal-programs.html for all the information. The Wildcat All Mountain Team is a seasonal program for children ages 4 – 16 who are looking for a winter’s worth of fun all-mountain experiences. The variety of terrain at Wildcat offers an amazing opportunity for your children to learn and experience groomers, bumps, glades, gates, and natural snow conditions unrivaled in the East. Teams are organized by age and ability to ensure that your children have the opportunity to develop friendships in an environment that promotes fun and learning.

Another dusting of snow overnight reminds us the endless winter at Wildcat will not quit…and we love it! Thanks to cold nights our groomers have been able to work the surfaces much better than the above freezing nights and thawing snow they see for most of the spring. Conditions were surprisingly good yesterday and actually felt like mid-winter packed powder in places. Of course it’s quite variable at different elevations thanks to spring-like weather taking over but not too shabby for April 25. Groomers reported another productive night on the hill; after their fantastic work yesterday you should expect nothing less today. Polecat was skiing quite well yesterday with good coverage throughout the trail. While on the Polecat, you can dip over to Catnap if you’d like to hit an ungroomed section of trail. Upper Catapult was another run in good shape but once you approach the bottleneck at the Middle Wildcat/Catapult split, throw on the brakes and ski under control as this section has thinned out. Once you’re past that intersection the skiing gets real good again with Bobcat and Cheetah being go-to lower mountain runs. We’ve opened the upper pitch into Bobcat known as “Evil K” but make sure to stay far left or right to exit this section. Off of the groomed surfaces, the ungroomed terrain leaves a little to be desired for as the snow has been locked up by thaw/freeze cycles. The more it gets skied and if warmer temps and sun can get to it then it will become quite fun again. The all-natural Upper Wildcat trail is still holding on but large moguls and wide areas of thin cover and ground exist so play it safe if you’re heading for our original slope. After being left ungroomed for snow preservation the last few days, Middle and Lower Lynx have been groomed with two passes down the trail but do know that areas of ice and thin cover exist. This trail in particular, and all open trails, should be skied with caution. Make sure to stop at the knolls and have a look down the pitches. We’re not trying to scare you but spring hazards are emerging and present, we’re just looking out for your best interests. Hopefully your best interests are skiing New Hampshire’s last open ski area! Our plan is to be open this weekend and then close for the midweek period (4/27-5/1) with the hope that we can reopen for a final weekend on May 2 & 3. There’s only a few more chances to join us this season, get out there and enjoy it while it lasts.

Today we have 2 lifts scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., providing access to 21 trails, 146 acres of terrain and 9.5 miles of slope. The groomers worked on 19 trails overnight including Middle and Lower Lynx. Conditions today with be machine groomed spring conditions. That means we’ll see a loose/frozen granular morning with some areas skiing as packed powder possibly transitioning to a softer corn snow. Like yesterday, the forecast isn’t calling for sun or warm temps so the snow will stay in relatively the same shape all day save what skier/rider traffic will do to it. We’re getting to that time of year where hazards are emerging and fully present so use caution and stay heads up on the trails. The ungroomed terrain is firm and variable so stick to the groomers unless you’re a die hard for all-natural skiing. However, it’s not bad practice for what you may encounter across the street on Mount Washington. As for the easier terrain, all of Polecat and Catapult have been groomed so follow those trails for the main routes down the mountain. Also, please respect the closed signs and ropes as those trails are no longer connected by snow. Hopefully you still have the passion for skiing even though the calendar reads late-April. We’ve got a great thing going on here and you surely want to be a part of it. We’re one of only seven remaining open ski areas east of the Mississippi, now that’s something special!

The forecast for today is calling for a chance of morning snow showers with a chance for afternoon mix. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies and highs approaching the mid 40s and moderate winds. Sunday looks to bring a chance of precip with highs in the upper 40s, cloudy skies and calm winds.

Please Note: The Wildcat Ski & Snowboard School is now closed for the season.
