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!

With a view of Mount Washington just across the way, this ski hill is a must for anyone who wants to really ski New Hampshire. It is run by the State, so is cheaper than other ski hills in the area, and the terrain is some of the most challenging - but there are still beginner's runs near the bottom!

Wildcat has great top to bottom skiing, especially in the morning. I enjoy the shorter runs in the afternoon as the top can get a bit skied off.

I had a ticket for the gondola ride. It was a great ride with some of the most beautiful views of the White Mountains! All the employees were super friendly and I met some great people from Tennessee on top!

We had a four pack of tickets for the gondola ride to the summit. We arrived at exactly 4:30, and was on the gondola by 4:40. We were told that the last trip down was at 5. It takes about 12 minutes to make the trip, so we arrived to the summit at 4:50. The attendant was clearly annoyed when... More

We had a prearranged family outing to celebrate a birthday in the family, ages ranged from 83 down to 2 yrs. old. We all took the zip line with the exception of the 2 yr. old including the 83 yr. old! The trip up the mtn. on the chair lift was leisurely and helped me to work on my fear... More
