If we powder alerted man-made snow, then you would have been hearing regularly while we powdered up the Black Cat, Starr Line, and Tomcat Schuss, among a bunch of other Wildcat Trails! But this week we've been getting some shots of the real thing --- light little clippers to freshen up the groomers. Well, yesterday we picked up about 3-4 inches, which was great & then it kept on snowing so we've awoken to another 4-5 inches! It all adds up to just over a foot of new snow this week, 7-9" over the last 24 hrs. There's some breeziness going on, so call ahead before you come up if you're looking for the Quad at 1-888-SKI WILD x217 (it's good to go at this time, but that can change!). Remember the Tomcat Triple dumps you out where all the best snow is anyway & still gives you over 1,500 feet of vertical!
We're still fired up for a good long Spring, as we head into March --- typically a snowy month here at the Cat! So come on up & SKI!
Even if you've done and bought a season pass at another mountain, that's okay . . . we're giving you guys $29 tickets on Fridays, starting March 3rd!

Carvers, Freeriders, Snowboarders, Telemarkers... on the everlasting ice of the Stubai Glacier the winter really gets going again from the middle of October. The Stubai Glacier ski resort is well prepared for the new season and is planning a stack of cool events on the beloved slopes above 3000 metres.
