We love skiing at Wildcat. The views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range are glorious. The lift to the summit is quick and smooth (only 7 minutes!) Lots of trail options for mellow and aggressive skiers, as well as beginners through experts.

This place is great and ski crowds are few! You can go to the top and bottom from Black to Green runs.
