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

On a clear Summer day, head to this gondola ride ASAP. The views across to the ravines of Mt. Washington are spectacular. The views are much better than from the Loon gondola or the Bretton Woods summer chairlift.

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.
