Being a bit older, I wanted to try zip lining without having to worry about equipment, dangling in the air and braking. And I found the perfect ride at Wildcat. With the Zip Rider, you take the chairlift up to a launch point where you're strapped into a seat-like harness. Four people go down at the same time on separate... More

Never been on a zip ride before. I loved it! You take a ski lift up and the staff informs you it's about a 45 second ride. But it is awesome! The price was reasonable. 20.00 per person. The ride was quick but very pretty while in the air. I recommend it.

Great range of trails for any level of skier. Amazing view of Mount Washington from the top which was definitely awe-inspiring. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

Wildcat looks ominous from the road and has a reputation for being cold and unforgiving. There are certainly some trails for the brave but there's great terrain that will please any level of skier. The views of Mount Washington from the top are unmatched and so overwhelming that first-timers can experience a bit of vertigo. We've had a few cold... More

I love this mountain. The skiing is great with lots of trails for all ski levels including beginner access from the summit. Our 5 year old loved it. The views of Mt Washington are incredible. I have never been here when its been overly crowded. One of my favorite New England ski areas.

Mountian was great and had it been a better day i bet the view would of been amazing! The lodge was clean and people very friendly. In addition to friendly staff the customers... More

This mountain was one of the best mountains I've ever skied. Conditions were excellent, with a wide variety of terrain, long runs and New England charm. The views were fantastic, and the staff was super friendly. If your in this area, it's worth the price of a ticket, which by the way was quite modest.

We had our first visit to Wildcat at the end of January and hit it perfect - a powder day! Conditions were incredible, it was a bit cold, but minimal wind. No lifts on wind hold and every trail covered in powder. Incredible views of Mt. Washington until the clouds and snow got in the way, but a beautiful, beautiful... More
