Reviews for Wildcat Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
On several trails the moguls were icy and rock hard and should have been cut down.. Last year I went and there was one decent trail top to bottom for any challenge. The other one they were race training.. not sure if I'll go back.... Full Review
I Just bought an epic pass to the Cat. My last sp here was in 04 under different mgmt. 2022 should be interesting in the land of Epic. Elevator Shaft and Thompsons Falls here we come....again.... Full Review
Wildcat was really disappointing as it could be a great mountain, but they (ski patrol in particular) just don’t seem to care. Several trails that were open simply should not have been - I’ve never seen so much exposed rock and twigs. It not only destroys your equipment but also these were simply not safe skiing conditions. This is not someone complaining because the mountain is “too hard” or that there are too many moguls, it’s that they seem to use the term “ungroomed terrain” to avoid having to maintain, mark, or patrol the mountain. Even groomed green trails had random holes that were unmarked. I get they need to make money and more “open trails” attracts more customers, but they could at least try making snow on some of the trails with boulders and mini-crevasses to save our skis....

I live in Ottawa Ontario and usually take a trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Won't be this year unless the border opens. I had ankle surgery last year and was so looking forward to this season. Lockdown has happened in Ontario and Quebec no way to get to Wildcat!... Full Review
Just spent the worst day skiing in many years. Web site says 5 trails open, actually 1 trail open. Soon became skied off, dangerously icy after 11 am with too many skiers, many out of control. Ideal day for snow making, yet none going except on beginner trail. Seems Vail owners want max profit with minimum expense to improve skier experience. Very disappointed since Wildcat is my favorite area when fully open.... Full Review
Great ski area, if you complain that there are no groomers, go somewhere else please. Moguls are really fun here, the glades are really fun to. want a terrain park, go to attitash OR look around the mountain and you will see something you wouldn't want to hit.... Full Review
My family and I started skiing Wildcat this year. Wow what a fun mountain! Old fashioned New England ski area. A true skiers mountain. If you don’t like it I probably wouldn’t want to ski with you!... Full Review
Wildcat has the most beautiful scenery and the best varied terrain in NE. Expert, intermediate or beginner this is a fantastic mountain. Situated in the White Mountain National Forest, there are NO condos here! Just great skiing and a view of "Old George" that's amazing. Wildcat has a nice pub for lunch and after ski entertainment. Great après ski opportunities and lodging are close by and plentiful in Jackson, Bartlett and North Conway. The only con here is when Mount Washington weather sneaks over to Wildcat. High winds can make things tough here. Hit Wildcat on a bluebird day however...... You'll never want to ski anywhere else!... Full Review
The expanded snow making combined with friendly staff, amazing trails and vistas, and challenging runs, for all levels, makes Wildcat my favorite.... Full Review
