Pinkham Notch, NH, June 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In addition to operating the weekend of Saturday, June 12th & Sunday, June 13th, Wildcat Mountain will be open during the legendary Laconia motorcycle week, weather permitting, on Monday, June 14th and then will re-open again to begin operating daily Thursday, June 17th thru the fall foliage season of late October. The two special midweek opening dates align with the Mt. Washington Auto Road’s annual “Ride To The Sky” events when it allows access to motorcycles only. On those same days, vacationing bikers are invited to come fly Wildcat Mountain on New Hampshire’s only ZipRider zip-line cable ride, the state’s highest scenic gondola, or to simply enjoy the mountainside cafe.
Then on Fathers Day, Sunday, June 20th, dads (and grandfathers too) can enjoy the Wildcat Express scenic gondola for free when one or more other family members purchase an adult or junior gondola ride. The only one of its kind in North America, the Wildcat Express transforms from New Hampshire’s arguably fastest and most powerful summit quad chairlift during the winter and spring skiing and riding season to the state’s highest summer and fall scenic gondola. The 6,700 foot cable line transports the enclosed 4-person scenic gondolas offering a unique guest experience and opportunity to view Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range from atop the over 4,000 foot summit. The Wildcat Express scenic gondola is the best way for the entire family, including well-behaved dogs on leash, to enjoy the legendary views and scenery.
Wildcat Mountain, a year-round destination located 100% within the White Mountain National Forest, provides both exhilarating and one-of-a-kind opportunities to enjoy views and scenery that have been consistently voted #1 in the East. In addition to the ZipRider and scenic gondola, Wildcat Mountain offers hiking, fishing, a seasonable lift-serviced 9-hole alpine disc golf course, and weekly guided tours and outdoor interpretive programs with the Tin Mountain Conservation Center. A seasonal food menu, beer, & wine are offered in the base lodge with fresh "Lunch & Ride" packages available for individuals, families, or groups.
