Snow Reporter Comments

**Update** Received over a foot of super fluffy awesome stuff over night, and our net gain is in the ball park of 20 inches. Tomcat Schuss, Lynx Connection, Feline and Al's Folly are now open. Do what you have to do to be here!

There are few things better than a storm day like the one we saw yesterday. Something that usually slips into the category of underrated is the day after the storm. New snow stays dry and the trails you want groomed out are laden with beautiful packed powder corduroy. Meanwhile, off piste on the steeps, in the woods, and below the drops, pockets of powder await to slow your descent. That’s the kind of skiing we’re going to be seeing today. Early measurements are showing at least 10 inches of snow fall overnight, with groomers out on the hill claiming more like 12-14 inches. This being said, with wind there are trails and lines that benefited more than others. The skiing and riding is going to be fantastic today without a doubt. It is also Bring-A-Friend Day here at Wildcat, which means all Season Pass and Vertical Value Card holders can purchase a -priced full-day lift ticket for a friend. Share this powder!

Today, Wednesday January 28, the Wildcat Express Quad, the Snowcat Triple, and the Snowbelt are scheduled to operate from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., giving you access to 39 open trails, 195.5 acres of terrain and 13.5 miles of slope. Our grooming team smoothed out this new snow on 26 of our 39 open trails which will make for a beautiful packed powder corduroy surface. Ungroomed terrain is going to be variable with much of it being powder and some of it be firm where the wind took it. Make sure to test out the terrain before bombing in; stay alert and use caution out there. We’ve got a small terrain park with five elements set up on Wild Kitten along with a terrain based learning area on the Snowcat Slope. The skiing in the woods should be pretty epic today as the wind sent some of this new snow into them!

The forecast is calling for a partly sunny day that’s going to be a bit chilly. The high temperature for today is going to be around 15 degrees and with the moderate winds we’re going to be seeing it’s going to feel colder, so make sure to bundle up, take lots of breaks, and always watch yourself and your companions for signs of frostbite!

The Lion’s Den and Nursery will be closed today, but The Wildcat Pub will be open, along with the Wildcat Sport Retail Shop, the Cafeteria and The Tune & Rental Shop. Snow this time of year can be hard on both your bases and edges. With more than 50 years of experience between them, the guys in our rental shop know what they’re doing, and there is no better place to have your skis and boards buffed out! Tired of your skis and thinking about something new? You can call the Wildcat Rental Shop at ext. 221 to reserve yourself a pair of our High Performance Rossignol Ski Demos. Available pairs are the Soul 7 & Experience 88 for men; Saffron 7 & Temptation 88 for women. Our demo gear is always tuned and ready to go! Going with the Bring-A-Friend day theme, the Ski and Snowboard school is offering Bring-A-Friend Semi-Private Lessons! These lessons are the same price as a private lesson, but you get to share the experience of learning to ski or ride with a buddy!

Well this photo pretty much sums up the day... If you weren't here you missed out. Fresh pow everywhere. Still ice underneath in some areas including the glades but cut your own trail and you'll be in powder heaven. Get here tomorrow!
