The 2020 Wild Cat
The three- or four-night Wild Cat is on hiatus for Winter 2020. Booking the Touring Cat this Winter will allow you one optional door-to-door “Wild Cat” ski through the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area on Tuesday of your trip, between Chipman Inn and Blueberry Hill. This would be in place of the Rikert Nordic Center day pass that the Touring Cat usually includes for Tuesday.
There is another whole day of backcountry skiing available for you at Blueberry Hill on Wednesday, whether on their trail system or taking a shuttle from the inn to ski one-way back to the inn in the backcountry.
The Tuesday & Wednesday backcountry ski days described above (very popular options on the Touring Cat trip) represent the best backcountry days of the Wild Cat trip. The very long, very challenging, climbing-skins required Thursday ski from Brandon Gap to Mountain Top is not on offer in 2020. Additionally, ALL of the five touring centers on the Touring Cat offer ungroomed/backcountry experiences in addition to the groomed/tracked trail systems at four of them.
