    I skied Attitash with friends today and it was very good ( 2016 scale) little more variety than wildcat, really tired of Lynx and the catipult side was scary 3 Saturday's ago and haven't been back. Waiting for Mother Nature . Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    On Tuesday (mid rain storm) I skied wildcat and it was pretty good despite the rain. I found a short unmarked glade off what used to be called "cat cutaway"... I have also heard of Thompson brook and Elevator shaft but I'm not sure how to get into them. Does anybody know of any other glades + how to access the ones I mentioned above?

    Thanks.

    These are not the glades you're looking for.

    Seriously, be careful where you go this year. Many of the "glades" at the 'Cat are brooks. I mean that literally. In a year like this one they will be running water, especially in a rain storm.

    If you're serious about finding them, it'll cost you a beer. The bar is a good place to solicit such information. We don't distribute it lightly on the internet.

    Thanks , I am very aware that these are running water brooks and I was not planning on actually doing these areas this year unless we have a big improvement in snow quantity.

    I was also curious as to how patrol feels about these areas. I know they can't officially approve skiing off map, but if they found people skiing in these areas are they ok with it or will they pull your pass?

    Thanks.

    I won't vouch for what patrol will or won't do. I'm guessing that's conditions dependent. If they need to suffer through unsafe conditions to pluck you out, they may not be too appreciative.

    That said, patrol at Wildcat skis and enjoys all the terrain there both on and off map just like a normal skier would.

    It's not hard to find Thompson Brook seeing as parts of it doubles as a hiking trail in the summer. I would not suggest going into either one on anything but snowshoes at the moment.

    Ski patrol's reaction will be based on if they recognize you. They know the regulars and will happily chat about the "reserve trails."

    If you really want to know where all the hidden glades are, there is a map in the Ski school building.

    Edit: Shouldn't we move this to the main skiing forum?

    By 'ski school building' do you mean the bobcat lodge? or the race team building?

    Neither. I mean the ski school building. It is a separate building adjacent to the Bobcat Lodge.
