Snow Reporter Comments

OPERATING PLAN: After running lifts from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. today we will be closed for the midweek period Monday through Friday, April 27 to May 1 and plan to reopen Saturday & Sunday, May 2 & 3 weather/conditions permitting. It is Youth 6-18 Pay Your Age Day as well as Sunday Funday so you can purchase our $30 half-day lift ticket that goes on sale at noon.
Our season began, what seems so long ago, on November 9. Quite a bit of time has passed since then and we’ve been lucky enough to witness another wild winter that’s allowing us to run long into the spring. Daily operations began on November 26 making today five straight months of firing our lifts up each morning. That excludes a few days sprinkled in thanks to inclement weather but for the most part we’ve been here for you to enjoy nearly every day for a good chunk of the year. It’s great to be part of the culture here at Wildcat that has put in serious time and effort to make the early season days, and now late season days, possible for you. It was the first season of putting our new snowmaking system to the test and we’re happy with the product it delivered. We’re not done yet though. We’ll continue working on and tweaking the system around the year to bring you a quality winter. For now, enjoy what’s left of this one.
We do hate to say it but there is a possibility it’s our final day. Our hope is to reopen next weekend but it all depends on what the weather does this week. A good majority of our snowmaking trails have awesome coverage but there are a few trouble spots that are thinning out. Middle Lynx is one example as there are great stretches of skiing but it has a couple areas that are almost gone. We recommend experts only on Middle and Lower Lynx but Upper Lynx is still in reasonably good shape. Polecat is hanging on just fine with a solid base throughout the trail. Heading off to Upper Catapult you’re greeted by another well-covered run but once you’re to the Middle Wildcat/Catapult section slow it down as this is another thin/exposed hazard area. After you’re through the bottleneck every trail is skiing great. Alley Cat, Lower Catapult, Bobcat, Cheetah and Wild Kitten are all still showing great life so you won’t go wrong making your way to those trails. As for the ungroomed terrain, that’s still pretty locked up and firm. If things warm up enough they’ll begin to loosen up but chances are that might not happen today. Upper Wildcat is open but quite an adventure. There is a fair amount of ground, ice, large moguls and thin strips of snow to navigate so make sure you know what you’re doing if you decide to head this way. Spring is definitely showing but the groomers have done a great job making some excellent conditions out there. We’d love to go out on a sunny and warm day but when you’re in business with nature as your partner, you have to play the hand you’re dealt. It really shouldn’t be all that bad out there and if this is our swan song then we’ll take it. It’s been an awesome ride and even though it’s sad to see the lifts stop spinning, this was another winter to feel good about. Cheers!
Today we have 2 lifts scheduled to run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., providing access to 23 trails, 147 acres of terrain and 9.8 miles of slope. The groomers worked on 19 trails overnight farming snow and patching up what needed it. Conditions today with be machine groomed spring conditions. The morning will start off as machine groomed loose and frozen granular with the ungroomed terrain being firm and variable. Temperatures look to warm up so we may see the transition to spring snow as the day goes on. Conditions will also change with skier traffic. We’re getting to that time of year where hazards are emerging and fully present so use caution and stay heads up on the trails. As for the easier terrain, all of Polecat and Catapult have been groomed so follow those trails for the main routes down the mountain. Also, please respect the closed signs and ropes as those trails are no longer connected by snow. We’re the last ski area to be operating in N.H. for the ninth straight season and we love giving you the longest winter possible. Even though the end is getting near, we hope you can join us as we wrap up in style. Thanks again for joining us at Wildcat.
The forecast for today is calling for a chance of morning snow showers/wintry mix transitioning to rain later in the day. Let’s hope we stay dry out there as any incoming precip looks to be spotty and not steady. Highs will top out in the upper 40s along with cloudy skies and light winds.

Nice spring day at Wildcat! Everything softened up around 11 and was a lot of fun. Looking forward to coming back during winter conditions!
