    My overall capital requests are pretty minimal. New snowmaking equipment for Tomcat Schuss, Gondiline and Upper Wildcat. Double the bar size and amount of tap handles.



    I suppose if I wanted to get really greedy, a couple on map upper mountain glades would be sweet too.

    Wildcat 2015-16 Thread

    My upgrade request consists solely of serving Poutine at the bar. Its absence ruins my day.

    Fire up the Twitter and lay into them. Say you're French and had heard about the great poutine last year

    Would be awesome for early season starts!
    Yeah that would be a great way to start and end. I'd really love to see a good lower mtn lift for windy days, a good upper mountain lift for elevation-effect powder, and the existing quad for awesome T2B. Pipe dreams I realize...

    What's wrong with Tomcat and Bobcat for lower mountain lifts? Too slow?

    Tomcat is basically only a wind hold back up chair now, but Bobcat was running today.

    it hardly every runs. I've been there several times when the quad is on wind hold but they still don't run Tomcat.

    I did not know that. I just assumed it always ran when the Quad is down. For whatever reason, I've lucked out and only been there a couple of times with the quad on hold and both those times Tomcat ran. My Wildcat career is pretty short though. Only skied there since 2007 and probably have 40ish days total.

    That's where having Attitash on the pass is a real benefit. If it's cold, windy and nasty at Wildcat, it's usually bearable at Attitash. And if it's looking nasty as hell for both, I'll just stay south and hit Crotched.

    The only reason they would not run the Tomcat with the quad closed is if the Tomcat also has a wind hold. I've seen the Tomcat run for 3 reasons:
    1) summit wind hold
    2) summit snowmaking disaster leading to the top trails closed or not beginner friendly
    3) additional capacity on peak days when the quad gets a line

    The Tomcat is great on busy days for additional capacity. It never ever gets a line, and it is taller and faster than the Attitash lift

    Did the sell the upper chair that was on the current quad line , wish they put it on gondiline when they installed the quad. I am patiently waiting for T2B gondiline, they could direct traffic over to panther if the are concerned about additional traffic on Alleycat. Brian please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I assume the old owners did. And yes, ttb Gondiline snowmaking should be a high priority on the improvement list. Would add a signature ttb expert run.
