Long Season for Snowmakers at Wildcat!

It’s been a long season for the snowmakers, and they’re just about to wrap things up at Wildcat Mountain this week. Attached are photos of a snowmaker at the bottom of Bobcat adjusting a land gun as well as a photo of a skier going through fresh man-made powder on Middle Wildcat.

Wildcat Mountain currently has 42 of 49 trails open, and it looks like natural snow is in the forecast for this week. Stay tuned for hopefully some powder shots later this week!

Special thanks to Laura Tuveson for the great photos!!
