You won’t believe it until you ski it. The terrain, the views, the community. Keep your amenities, your bells and whistles that have grown up around mountains, and just come ready to rip. One of the fastest lifts on the east coast whisks skiers to the summit, and from there, any way down is pure adrenaline. The weather off of Mount Washington provides secret powder stashes in fairytale glades. Mountain ops leave agreed-upon trails ungroomed for an authentic decent, and then there are race-quality corduroy cruisers to enjoy. It’s no wonder that families raise their skiers at Wildcat, which made the Born Wild Campaign an easy one to create.
