We were booked to eat at the Wildcat in June and arrived to a warm welcome and were invited to eat in our outside. As it was a lovely June day we choose outside. Good menu of choices to suit us all.

We landed at this mountain, as it was one of only a few still open, due to the warm weather. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our 8 year old went into the "Lions Den" ski school, and had the best time! Rob made learning a lot of fun!!. So much so, she wanted to go back again and... More

I haven't skied in over 20 years and my husband and 7yo and 5yo have never skied. This mountain was definitely a bit steeper than the Pocono Mountains of my youth, but the staff is incredible. Hannah took care of me from the moment I called to reserve ski school to our last day, when we bought some trinkets to... More

Our 13 year old took her first lesson here. She loved it. Then when the day got too late and the mountains too slushy she fell and injured her knee. The two guys who came up to check on us were so great. They brought down the mountain safely and recommended a local clinic for X-rays. She is OK!

I love this place; it just has a wonderful family vibe. I brought my daughter here for a snowboard lesson and ended up taking a ski lesson myself. My instructor was friendly & super professional- it was the first time I had skid since high school so he had his work cut out. The crews had done a great job... More

We like visiting Wildcat when we're over here skiing from England. This time was the best visit we have had at the 'cat' Mother Nature was dealing a bad hand , lack of snow and warm weather ! Which resulted in only 2 lifts open and lots of closed runs. It was the wind that finished us of , My... More

A skiers mountain, with the longest runs in New Hampshire. Pole cat is a great run for intermediate/beginner skiers. On a clear day the views of Mount Washington are breathtaking. High speed quad gets you to the top in 8 minutes. Also free bag check keeps your gear safe and out of others way.
