A Few Words On The Snow

Chasing powder at Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort doesn't provide the amount of bounty as, say, Alta — where else does? — but skiers at Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort stand a decent chance of seeing a nice snow event once every seven days. On average, 10.0% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snow — enough for most people to have fun. If you're not having fun, then ski faster. But make sure you're actually good before you ski fast. Really good. Not good? Then go to Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort and start practicing!

Skiing at Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort is about getting outside, ripping up the slope, eating chili dogs and getting in as much vertical as you can. It's not about big dumps. And that's okay. This place is about honing your skills for that trip to Snowbird or Alaska. With only 3.0% of months at Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort getting more than 90 inches of snow, this isn't the place to set up your powderhound shack.

Drought Potential

The snow at Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort can disappear often enough that you may want to pack extra snow beads when taking a trip here.

Getting to Wildcat Mountain Ski Resort, if you're flying in
