WILDCAT MOUNTAIN TO CELEBRATE 60 YEARS OF LIFT-SERVICED SKIING JANUARY 25 – 28

Wildcat Mountain has always been an iconic name in the ski industry, and for good reason. Incredible views of the Presidential Range, tremendous annual snowfall, high elevation, and northwestern exposure assuring a long ski season are all factors that have led to Wildcat’s long continued success over the years. It was on January 25, 1958, that the mountain would be changed forever when it opened the country’s first gondola.

This week, Wildcat Mountain is celebrating their rich history with lift ticket specials, events, and activities, from January 25 – January 28. Activities include a “lift-opening” ceremony with one of Wildcat’s original vice president’s and gm’s, Stan Judge, plus birthday cake, a historical memorabilia display, après entertainment with radio boston.com, a huge fireworks display, and more.
