PINKHAM NOTCH, New Hampshire ??” It has been snowing at Wildcat Mountain and the mountain is now back to 90% open. Wildcat received 5-8 inches from Sunday night’s storm, another 1-2 inches overnight on Monday, and continuing light flurries into Tuesday. In fact, the forecast calls for a chance of snow every day this week. This adds to the 7-10 inches of snow Wildcat received last week and has the cumulative effect of rapidly improving conditions for skiing and riding. On Monday Wildcat opened 15 trails, and so is now open for skiing and riding on 41 of Wildcat’s 47 trails. The conditions are powder and packed powder, with variable and thin cover areas on the all-natural snow trails. Grooming is on about 75% of the open terrain, and Mountain sources report that Wildcat has been receiving very positive feedback from skiers and riders on trail grooming, and the overall skiing “shape” of the mountain all season long.

For Events on the weekend February 4th and 5th Wildcat will be hosting an Apres Ski Party sponsored by Sam Adams on Saturday Feb. 4th. Entertainment will be provided by live DJ Brian Sparhawk, who is known for interacting with customers by playing hilarious games and having plenty of prize giveaways. Then on Sunday, Apres Ski features live acoustic solo guitar player Barry Arvin Young from 1 to 4, and the Super Bowl Pre-game Show will be available by satellite television.
