Just hours after Bretton Woods announced it would open for 2014-15 on 12:00 on Sunday, Wildcat made a surprise announcement that it would be opening at 10:00. Like Bretton Woods, it will be offering free lift tickets to those donating a canned good.
Operating the Wildcat High Speed Quad and skiing Lynx top to bottom, Wildcat will be offering the most lift served vertical drop in New England at this point in the season. The opening comes after a $2 million rebuild of the area's snowmaking system and Peak Resorts' filing for a public stock offering.
Wildcat has yet to announce its initial midweek operating schedule, while Bretton Woods plans to close Monday-Wednesday.
Meanwhile, ski areas across New England were firing up snowguns, including Bromley, Stratton, Cranmore, and Jiminy Peak.
