Will never forget the climb up the rock mountain, after the gondola ride, we climbed a rock mountain incline to get to,the observation tower, which had great views of Mt. Washington. Well worth it, but there is a trail also that you can take but wasn't mentioned to us.

Good value and you can not beat the view once at the top of the mountain - was a thrill for my 7 year old, her first Gondola ride and loved hiking once we got to the top....

Wow! We visited wildcat as a 'last minute' idea on a break to New Hampshire. Turned out to be so much fun, doing things we never expected as a family. We noticed this place on a return journey from a theme park and decided to return the following morning. We were a group of four adults and three children ages... More

Some of my favorite trails to ski. Awesome views of Mount Washington from the summit, any time of the year. Getting an early start skiing, there is a good spot on Catnap to take a break on the way down, so quiet and peaceful! While the zipline may not be as long as some in the area, no hiking or... More

Wildcat is a classic New England ski area with a view that is among the best I've seen in the world. The Mount Washington Valley is a great place to visit too - good restaurants and inns.

There is a nice charm here. Extremely scenic and overlooking Mt Washington. This was my last destination at the White Mountains and I quite enjoyed it.

These guys do a great job grooming. Great ski area !! I have a midweek Attitash / Wildcat season pass and ski all the time. Both ski areas are bloody fantastic.

The $9 deal was the icing on the cake to get me to leave home at 4:25am and drive 214 miles to enjoy the scenery and 16 runs between 8:50am and 1pm. The BLT in the lodge for $5 was enjoyed OUTSIDE on the deck. The morning temp of 27 eventually rose to 52 at the base, but the fresh... More

Went for the first day of spring. Snowy, wet, about 6' of "wet powder" on the slopes, slow hard going. I came back the next day, it was well groomed where I wanted to go. This is a great hill. I pulled in Thursday morning to an uncrowded parking lot. Same on Friday. Never a lift line. Fantastic skiing. I... More

I took the day off and traveled up north to Wildcat. To my surprise the lot was empty. A first for me. The sun was shining, the lodge was quiet, the slopes were icy. I wish I was there before the warmer weekend weather came to glaze over the bumps. You know it is going to be a rough day... More
