Wildcat Mountain – Pinkham Notch, NH. November 17, 2018. To date, Wildcat Mountain has received 35 inches of natural snow, and snowmaking crews have jumped at every chance to make snow, which they began doing on October 17. This has allowed Wildcat Mountain to open 90% of the mountain, with 43 out of 48 trails open, 212 acres, and nearly 15 miles.
In the past seven days, Wildcat Mountain has received 19 inches of natural, which helped to set up a good base on all trails across the mountain. Six of those inches fell from the sky early Friday and piled up on the firm base that is needed to open natural terrain.
“It’s been an incredible start to this season, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Brian Heon, general manager and vice president of Wildcat. “Going into the weekend, we knew we would be able to open a lot of natural terrain and give our guests the most open terrain on the East coast.”
With cold temperatures ahead, the snow is not expected to go anywhere, and snowmaking crews will begin making snow again on Tuesday. Daily operations for the season begin on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.
