Pinkham Notch, NH ? It has been snowing at Wildcat Mountain. Wildcat received another 1-2 inches overnight and continuing light flurries. In fact, the forecast calls for a chance of snow every day this week. and has the cumulative effect of rapidly improving conditions for skiing & riding. On Monday Wildcat opened 15 trails, and so is now open for skiing & riding on 41 of Wildcat's 47 trails. The conditions are powder and packed powder, with variable and thin cover areas on the all-natural snow trails. Grooming is on about 75% of the open terrain, and Mountain sources report that Wildcat has been receiving very positive feedback from skiers and riders on trail grooming, and the overall skiing "shape" of the mountain all season long.

Stevens Pass Wa
Stevens Pass, ever since the opening season of 1937, has been a research center and to this day those that carry on, record daily snow fall, wind, temperature and weather that relates to avalanche potential.
Stevens Pass is a Class A avalanche area and has over two hundred and thirty, avalanche paths in the ski area boundary.
The ski area being on the Crest of the Cascade Range has weather patterns that can change rapidly. These sometimes-rapid changing weather patterns can rapidly change the condition of the snow pack causing avalanches or very different snow conditions from moments before.
So you can see that it keeps the avalanche control people quite busy throughout the winter season.
Stevens Pass has snow, weather and avalanche documentation dating back to 1937 and still conducts research projects relating to snow science and weather.
Stevens Pass has a very active avalanche control program that monitors hourly weather and snow pack information and that conducts avalanche control mitigation in the ski area boundary to help minimize the avalanche potential to the skiing public.
Stevens has lots of it, averaging 450" of snowfall each year,
covering 1,125 acres of skiable terrain, including 37 major runs and numerous bowls, glades and faces.
