NEW SNOW, SNOWMAKING & TON OF EVENTS HIGHLIGHT MLK WEEKEND AT ATTITASH & WILDCAT
Bartlett & Pinkham Notch, NH
– Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain have been and continue to make snow around the clock with the focus on expanding terrain for the long MLK holiday weekend. Mother Nature has also assisted with a significant snow fall Tuesday
night with Wildcat Mountain picking up eight inches of snow and Attitash receiving six inches and significant additional snow is forecasted for the weekend.
Wildcat Mountain has taken advantage of every opportunity to be making snow since early November opening on November 25 and have been operating daily since then with multiple summit-to-base trails and routes open. Wildcat is currently making snow on the Wild Kitten trail for the weekend. It is a favorite among all abilities, but an especially inviting cruiser for novice skiers and snowboarders. It is over a mile in length. Wildcat expects to have half its total acreage open for skiing and riding this weekend.
Attitash Mountain Resort has recently opened up all connecting trails between its two mountains. The snowmaking and grooming teams will be pushing hard through the week to open many additional trails. Snowmaking is underway on Upper and Lower Cathedral, Lower Saco, Chicken’s Pitch and Ammonoosuc on the Attitash side. At Bear Peak, snowmakers have completed Trillium, Moonbeam and Reckoning and are firing up Wandering Skis. Snowmaking continues on Lower Myth Maker. Attitash expects to have over 50% of its 68 trails available and over 60% of its acreage. Attitash will also be adding a terrain park on Bear Peak for the weekend.
Attitash & Wildcat offer the only reciprocal ticket & pass program in New Hampshire. Lift tickets and season passes are valid for use at both areas. The ski areas are located a short 20-minute drive from one another and will offer a combined 50 trails, over 268 acres, and terrain park features for skiing & riding this upcoming holiday weekend.
For on-snow events, Attitash has a Rail Jam slated for this Saturday that will kick-off of the three-event Attitash Freeride Series. Snowmaking has been underway all this week on the Lower Myth Maker trail and the terrain park build has begun for Saturday’s Rail Jam.
Both ski areas offer great après entertainment all season long. The Wildcat Pub features musician Ryan St. Onge on Friday and DJ Mike for this Saturday. Attitash will feature musician Scott Baer performing in The Den at Bear Peak while the popular local band Livin’ The Dream perform in Ptarmigan’s Pub Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 pm. A Patriots Playoffs Viewing Party beginning at4:30 p.m. will include food & drink specials and prize giveaways throughout the game including a grand prize, a “Fat Tire” mountain bike.
The final week for points is in the books. Another beautiful day with cold temps and fast times. I hope you all enjoyed this season as much as we did. We will take a week off and then come back for our head to head dual course so be ready. Thanks for another great race league season.
Back from vacation and back to racing in the blue skies again. Hope you all enjoyed your week off and enjoyed the blue skies today. Remember next week is the last week that “counts”. The following week is an off week and then the last week will be the dual race and party day. Don’t forget to pick up your new Attitash Race League Hat today!
