Wildcat is still charging regular price. So I want to know its condition is good. Like are most runs and lifts still open?
Thanks for the report.I was there on Saturday. The place was close to 100% open, but it looks like they're going to lose the majority of their natural trails, well, at least the natural trails on the lower mountain (i.e. everything that isn't groomed on their last report). Everything was skiable with reasonable coverage. It took some planning / navigation on the natural runs, but it was by no means impossible to ski down without running over a bunch of junk.
Tickets were $55 on the weekend, which is down ~20% from full rates. I don't know if they'll lower it to $40 now that they're closed all week, but I wouldn't hold my breath. I'd take a look at the report on Saturday, but expect all the trails with snowmaking to have good cover and maybe some limited bump runs available on the mid to upper mountain.
I thought of that. But I'm in such terrible shape fitness-wise this year, I don't think I would make it in good spirit. I'd rather not to make the day into a death march.You can ski Tucks for free. :wink:
I WILL ski this Sunday. It's only a matter of which mountain. Wildcat is the closest but quite a few other candidates are also within striking distance.Of course this time of year, your lucky to ski it at all.
That's a good point! I'll let weather be my guide.I think the view of George in your face all day is a big part of the appeal for me.
I would suggest hitting them on a clear, or non-foggy, day if you can.

That's interesting information. Looks like it's an annual event for them?It was just brought to my attention today that Sunday River is offering free skiing on Sunday. It appears that operation might be limited to the Barker Mountain area, so it might well be a mad house though. SR is ~ 1 hour from the Mount Washington Valley.

If the weather is clear, Wildcat it will be. But if the weather is iffy, I might consider SR.
