Amazing experience

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.

Old school ski area which is what we like! Very clean in/outside. Trails properly marked - Many trails to choose from. Short lift lines.

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

We went to Wildcat Mountain in Feb for a family ski trip. The staff at the base camp told us the mountain top was quite windy (either 15 or 50 mile per hour wind speed I didn't hear clearly) and the temperature was -15 degree. When we took the lift up to the mountain top, it's so windy that the... More

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
