Todays Hours
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.



Afternoon Update: The sun is shining over the top of Wildcat and our season is off to a great start. Snowmaking is underway on the top of Polecat and we will be back again tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope to see you all smiling and making turns this winter with us at the 'Cat.


The offseason is now complete and the wait is finally over. Wildcat Mountain opens top-to-bottom today to kick off the 2015/16 winter season. That's right, you'll be skiing over 2100 feet of vertical on the Lynx trail accessed by the Wildcat Express Quad that will spin from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. We'll continue operating daily, including Thanksgiving, so you can start racking up days on the slopes. Conditions today will be manmade machine groomed and variable as it is early in the season. The weather for today is going to be gorgeous with sunny skies and mild temps so those grins better never leave your face. The terrain is recommended for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders, make sure to play it safe out there. Are you stoked yet? We hope so because we're all fired up here about the season beginning. Come be a part of the awesome that is Wildcat Mountain!

Snowmakers took advantage of the cold temps starting Friday night and have put the pieces together on Lynx to make it happen. We've now moved our efforts to Polecat to get another top-to-bottom trail open as soon as possible. Our crew will be cranking out the snow whenever weather and conditions permit so you can expect the trail count to rise when the cold days arrive. We'll keep you posted on our progress right here.    

Lift Tickets will be available at the window rate of $49 for Adults & $39 for Young Adults, Juniors and Seniors. Vertical Value Card & Season Pass Holders will be able to take advantage of the Bring-A-Friend Deals in place. Vertical Value Card holders will save 50% off the regular season, midweek lift ticket rate for their age group.

For Base Lodge amenities, we will have the cafe and pub open (limited pub menu) as well as the W Sports Retail Shop. The Wildcat Tune Shop will be closed in the basement but you can bring your gear to the Retail Shop if it needs to be tuned. Ski School, Rentals and the Nursery will all be closed. 

It's go time at The 'Cat!
