PINKHAM NOTCH, New Hampshire — Wildcat Mountain has announced plans to continue ski area operations through the week of April 16th with a rescheduled closing date of Sunday April 22nd.

Wildcat has received two feet of new snow in the past week, and there is more in the forecast. With 43 of 47 trails open, plus additional tree-skiing areas that became available for the first time this season, Wildcat is all but 100% open with mid-winter packed powder conditions. The snow will soften up once again when temperatures rise above freezing, and there will be a whole new cycle of spring skiing next week.

The forecast indicates additional snowfall at the ski area is likely in the next few days, with up to a foot of new snow possible by Friday morning, and additional snow is possible early next week. The best place to stay up to date on snow conditions and operations information is on the Snow Report page at www.skiwildcat.com or by calling 1-888 SKI WILD.

Special spring rates are in effect. Saturday and Sunday adult tickets and teen tickets are $49, and Junior (ages 6-12) and Senior (65+) lift tickets are $29.

With Wildcat’s multi-day program the next day’s ticket is always $29, as long as visitors up-grade their tickets for the next day by 3:30pm. Midweek lift tickets are $29 for all ages.

Wildcat’s new 2007/08 passes are also on sale with the best prices available until April 15th, 2007. Season pass prices start at only $199. For more information and details, visit Wildcat’s web site at skiwildcat.com or call the mountain at 1-888-SKI WILD.
