A classic skier's mountain with no frills. Narrow, steep, and challenging trails with a 2,100 foot drop. No grade inflation on the trail ratings. Really has the best view in the east from the summit. Absolutely majestic. Express quad provides excellent uphill capacity and the smaller, ancillary chairs are usually empty as a result which is also a plus for... More

Terrific powder snow with much ungroomed powder to play in coupled with a friendly staff and a great view of Mt Washington made this a great ski experience.

Skiing at Wildcat can seem intimidating, but once you try it, you'll be hooked! Best skiing in the area

Back to Wildcat while skiing in the area ... never disappoints! Love love love the high speed to the summit; lots of challenging hills and some more relaxing cruisers ... Wild Kitten (green) is so fun to spiral down on! Took our own lunch b/c previous experience was food was over-priced and underwhelming, posted prices seemed to reflect the usual... More

We were in Jackson for several days so we decided to take the Gondola Ride up the mountain. It was cool and windy even in August so take a jacket. Plenty of photo opportunities of the White Mountains and Mount Washington....but there are less expensive ways to get these views without hiking.

First off the Gondola has been gone for years! There is a lot of snow but little grooming, I only hope the plan is to groom the heck out of the place before Xmas. The sides of the trails are frozen crud as is. Rain and then freezing temps will make it impossible to ski most of the mountain. I... More

I would definitely recommend taking a Gondola ride up Wildcat Mountain. Although we went in the Summer, I would imagine that it would be even better in the Fall when the leaves are at peak colors. It was reasonably priced and the views of The Whites and Mount Washington are awesome! We actually got stuck up there for a little... More

Having both skied and hiked at Wildcat, I can submit to any outdoor enthusiast that Wildcat has some really good options. The skiing is good, and I found that using the slopes after some of the other areas have closed for the season is a bonus. My only negative comment about skiing is the mixing of skill levels on the... More

We are not skiers but went up to the mountain anyway. the drive up was really pretty. We went out looking for moose very early, so the roads were empty and the resort was closed, but next time I visit I willl go when people are awake!
