Terrain Parks - Wildcat

Rider's Guide

This is a mountain resort that focuses completely on the mountain, rather than on the base-camp experience. Their more than 220 acres of boardable land and 50 amazing trails are impeccably groomed and expertly maintained. It's one of the best-kept mountains in the New Hampshire region. With an average snowfall of more than 16 feet and 90 percent snowmaking capabilities, the runs are a pleasure to ride.

Parks and Pipes

The mountain doesn’t feature any parks or pipes. What the area lacks in terrain parks, it more than makes up for in difficult, steep, long runs. It features some extremely challenging trails like the Upper Wildcat, the Lift Lion, and the Top Cat. The resort has more than 2,100 feet of vertical drop, which should put a smile on the faces of speed junkies.

Out of Bounds

The resort area doesn’t offer many activities other than fantastic skiing and snowboarding, its priorities are refreshingly straightforward, incredible trails and glades and none of the distractions found at other resorts, in other words, “pure vertical fun.” It's sister mountain, Attitash, has more flare, but sometimes, you just gotta love the solitude.

Hangout & Hookup

The mountain itself only has one cafeteria and one après ski pub. The nearby towns of Gorham, Jackson, and North Conway offer plenty of eateries and bars. The Shannon Door Pub in Jackson is a rustic Irish-style pub that features live music on the weekends and delicious food daily. There are a large variety of restaurants in the area ranging from casual pizza joints to renowned gourmet dining.

There is no slopeside lodging offered, but they have partnered up with many of the area’s accommodation to offer visitors enticing ski and stay packages throughout the season. For travelers on a tight budget, check out the upscale, yet affordable, White Mountains Lodge and Hostel, which is a European-style hostel housed in a gorgeously restored 19th century farmhouse located 12 miles north of the ski area.
