Comments
Comments: Opted to descend via a ski trail at the Wildcat ski area to avoid descending the first section of the Wildcat Ridge Trail as that section was very icy. Ended up seeing a moose on the descent. This route is an excellent alternative to Mt. Washington if the weather is questionable, we were out of the wind for most of the day. Overall an excellent day!!!! I would appreciate it if whoever e-mailed me a followup to my report on my Wildcat hike on 10/23/10 would resend the e-mail, it accidentally got deleted. Thanks
