Wildcat Snowmaking Project Nearing Completion
Massive improvement effort has been underway after system failures last winter.
Tuesday, September 30, 2014,

According to a recent blog entry by General Manager Brian Heon, Wildcat's snowmaking improvement project is nearing completion.

While management had expected to enter the 2013-14 season with improved snowmaking capabilities, numerous pipeline and pump issues related to the upgrades and cold weather resulted in minimal upper mountain snowmaking. Rollout of snowmaking terrain at Wildcat even fell behind Cannon at one point, resulting rough skier relations throughout the season. Nonetheless, Wildcat was able to stay open the latest of all lift served ski areas in New Hampshire.

The estimated $2 million project includes 55,000 feet of new pipe, at least 150 snowguns, and a new mid-mountain booster pumphouse.
