To the editor:

The people who have been my closest friends for the past 20 years are the people I have skied with, eaten with and drank with at Wildcat mountain.

That experience led to my family moving to the Mount Washington Valley full time. I haven’t skied Wildcat yet this year and the weather is partly to blame. Mostly though, it’s the perception of what the Cat is quickly becoming since purchased by Vail Resorts.

I’ve lost the eager desire to get started after hearing of staff defection, lack of maintenance and poor snowmaking. Last year I chose to ignore all the noise, this year it’s setting in.

I will never give up on the Cat and all the wonderful memories, friendships, views and truly enjoyable skiing it has provided me. Sadly, I feel the new perception has caused disaffection with some I know. Maybe the Cat’s time with Vail Resorts is yet to come. I hope so.
