We now carry Innova Disc Golf Discs in the W Sports Retail Shop. Come on in and browse our great selection. Once you're ready to play, you'll ride the Snowcat Triple up to a short walk to the beginning of the course. Each hole will have a white tee for advanced players and a red tee for beginners. You'll wind your way down the trails of Wildcat eventually ending up back at the base area. Warm up at the practice basket located near the base of the Snowcat Triple chair before you go off to explore and play at Wildcat.

The Way of the Wildcat is a short, ½-mile loop at the base area of Wildcat and nearby forest. Follow the paw prints along the way to learn about the natural surroundings at information stations along the route. The walk usually takes about 30 minutes. If you’re looking for more adventure, continue another ½-mile to the Thompson Brook Waterfalls, a picturesque series of cascades not to be missed!
