History of Wildcat Ski Area
The original Wildcat Trail was a class-A ski race trail surveyed by Charley Proctor and cut by the CCC – the year was 1933. The trail was 60 feet wide, 1.5 miles long, and 2,000 vertical feet drop.
In 1955 Mack Beal, Brooks Dodge, George Macomber, and Malcolm McLane started the development of a lift-served ski area – the first of its type in the White Mountain National Forest and the first ever to be constructed on National Forest land on the East Coast.
The Wildcat Gondola opened on January 25, 1958, making Wildcat Ski Area one of the largest commercial ski areas in the Northeast.
In 1961 Route 16 was rebuilt and relocated across the Peabody River which allowed for a much larger base area for Wildcat.
While major snowfall is not uncommon, the February 1969 winter storm dumped yards of snow – resulting in ten to 15-foot drifts and clogging the summer terminal of the gondola. Bulldozers were required to clear the lift lines.
