Our Location

our scenic, serene Mountain is Just a short trip away...

Wildcat Mountain is nestled in the White Mountain National Forest directly across from Mount Washington on Route 16, halfway between the towns of Jackson and Gorham. Our parking lot & base lodge is located just north of the Pinkham Notch Appalachian Mountain Club Visitor Center and just south of Great Glen Trails and the Mount Washington Auto Road.

Wildcat Mountain is located due north of the historic town of North Conway.  

As always, drive safe, be careful, because the skiing and riding will be tremendous!
