Snow at Attitash Mountain and Wildcat Mountain!

WanderingSkis_1lores$40 Fridays in March & April discount lift ticket offer starts this week and conditions couldn’t be more perfect for this special.
So start your weekend early!
(offer is available at both Wildcat & Attitash).


Wildcat Mountain – It keeps snowing by the foot weekly and the late afternoon update was 6-8” of new snow today. We are currently at 47 of 49 trails open, but at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wildcat moves to being 100% open for the weekend with powder and packed powder conditions.

Attitash Mountain Resort – At 4 p.m., we’ve updated to be at 4-6” of new snow today. Attitash remains 100% open, as it has been since mid-February, and we’ll stay that way with all 67 trails open (treeskiing areas skiing and riding great too) for the weekend with powder and packed-powder conditions. The Peak Resorts Stunt Airbag will be at Attitash again for this weekend (available March 1–3) and is open to the public to catch big air and jump on. Another fun option, and open weekends for the remainder of the season, is the Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster. Finally, this weekend, the Illusion trail at Bear Peak will be closed to the public as we host the Ladies Eastern Cup Giant Slalom event.


Don’t forget, only 20 minutes nearby to each other, all lift tickets are valid for use at both Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain.
