Wildcat is a classic New England cult ski area, boasting the most continuous vertical in New Hampshire. Natural mountain with challenging terrain. Wildcat quad takes you to the summit in 6 minutes. You can easily get 20 runs in half a day, and if you can find it, check out Thompsons brook.

Wildcat is the only resort in New England that can give you the feeling that you're out on the left coast hitting the dry powder stashes! This place may not have many lifts, but what it lacks in quantity it more than makes up in quality. The eponymous express quad will whip you to the top of a full 2200' of vertical in under 10 minutes. As noted in the resort description, this place sits directly across the road from Mt. Washington (yes, that Mt. Washington, the tallest mountain in the eastern US.) While this provides more snow than any other resort in the area, don't be surprised if you show up and the wind is blowing (I've seen it close to 70 steady with gusts over 100mph!) Despite this, I still highly recommend Wildcat. A powder day here is unlike any other experience you'll get on the East Coast!

Wildcat is an old-school hill in one of the best possible resort locations in New England. Situated directly across from Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast, Wildcat experiences the famous "notch-effect" which brings inches of snow to the hill while it rains just a few hundred feet lower on either side of the Pinkham Notch. Wildcat has unique, twisting and turning trails with challenging terrain and some backcountry possibilities. With limited vertical elevation, the runs at Wildcat are longer and more enjoyable than at any other ski resort in New England because of the unique trails. With no slopeside condominiums, no fancy restaurants, and their infamously cold and windy weather, the crowds are scarce everyday. It is by far my favorite mountain in the area not only for its terrain and low prices, but also for the sense of community that is felt there. The same staff, skiers and boarders, and parking attendants year after year. A fantastic mountain and one definitely worth visiting while in New Hampshire.
