    I think the cases I've seen are when the quad goes on WH Mid-day. they don't seem willing to fire up the Tomcat if it wasn't already running. Maybe due to staffing?

    I was there this season when NE got that cold spell, the area had wild chill warnings from Saturday nite to Sunday morning. Drove up to ski Sunday just blasting music b/c I didn't want to hear how cold it was. Wildcat had the triple going b/c the quad was on wind hold. The trees along this lift made the ride tolerable. Once lunch rolled in, the wind hold was lifted and they swapped in the crew from the triple to the quad ... done within one run. One of the lifties between the two lifts told me to the summit was off hold.
    I rather be @ss noodling

    Great afternoon this past Friday at Wildcat. The morning was completely frozen but things softened up nicely. Was nice meeting and doing a few runs with Edd.

    Pictures from Saturday 12 March. Variable conditions, lots of closed trails but still plenty left to ski on.

    Nice shots hammer. Today isn't quite so scenic, but at least they got an inch or two of snow to whiten things up a bit.

    How does Wildcat do their late season ops? Just Lynx and the HSQ?
    Will be up with family in the MWV Patriots Day wknd and if Wildcat is open and has the Snowcat learning lift still spinning may take my son there.

    Originally I thought no that if open it would just be Lynx but then read that a lot of the British invasion are low level skiers so thought maybe Snowcat.
    No sure how deep they blow there and/or if they will blow more this wknd if they wanted to make that part of the plan.

    They'll probably run Lynx, Snowcat, and Bobcat chairs. They'll keep open whatever terrain survives. This weekend they are blowing on Polecat and Snowcat for the Brits.

    Wildcat 2015-16 Thread

    Drove up here today; last minute decision. If anyone is here also shoot me a message.

    Edit: On the drive up Rt 16 there were 3 separate billboards for the Peak Pass. I can't remember seeing a stronger marketing push for a single pass.
