Wildcat Mountain

Benefiting from its higher elevations, Wildcat Mountain began its initial snowmaking operations Tuesday evening and has continued to do so with the desire to open as soon as possible. If weather and conditions remain favorable, Wildcat Mountain may try to open as early as Thanksgiving Day. If not then, weather and conditions permitting, Wildcat Mountain is hoping to open the Friday or Saturday of the Thanksgiving Weekend. Operation times and/or ticket rates have not been set at this time, and we encourage you to visit skiwildcat.com for up-to-date information as Thanksgiving approaches. The guest service desk and season pass office in the base lodge will be open Friday, November 23 & Saturday, November 24 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. if people wish to pick up their season pass or purchase gift cards and other available seasonal products. In addition to opening, Wildcat Mountain will be hosting an event that had originally been scheduled for Attitash:

Cans or Cash @ The Cat | Saturday, November 4 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. – Snow/weather permitting, Wildcat Mountain will host a jib session with a rail and box set up at the base of Wildcat. Skiers/riders are asked to provide three canned goods or make a $3 donation that will go to a local food pantry. The ticket for the hike jib session will be separate from the ticket for lift-accessed terrain if Wildcat is open at that time. Visit skiwildcat.com for more details as they come together and as we know better what the conditions may be like.

Attitash Mountain Resort

Attitash Mountain Resort is prepared to begin its snowmaking efforts when conditions become more favorable for a productive and long-term push. It will not be offering lift-serviced skiing or riding for the Thanksgiving Weekend, but the Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster will be open Friday & Saturday, November 23 & 24 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. weather permitting. For those days, Attitash & Wildcat invite all of its season passholders to enjoy one free ride on the Mountain Coaster when they show their season pass at the Attitash ticket window. Attitash also plans to have its Season Pass office open in the main base lodge from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. if people wish to pick up their season pass or purchase gift cards and other available seasonal products.
