Wildcat Mountain is home to New Hampshire’s longest ski trail and is renowned for its high summit elevation over 4,000 feet and greater than 2,100 vertical feet of skiing and riding. Wildcat’s elevation and proximity to Mt. Washington contributes greater natural snowfall and a long winter/spring season annually. Wildcat Mountain has consistently been rated #1 scenery by readers of SKI Magazine. For further information, please visit skiwildcat.com or call 1-888-SKI WILD.
