Wildcat Glades

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I went to Wildcat yesterday, and had a couple bad experiences in the glades. The ones between cougar and panther were fine, the ones below polecat and the ones between cheetah and lower wildcat were a little more challenging but doable.When I got to the ones between lower polecat and lynx, and between wild kitten and lower wildcat, I got to a point where the trees were so dense and the trail so steep, that there was only one path where previous skiers had gone. I had to walk down or up in both of these sections.

 

Are these sections supposed to be closed off? Or will I eventually learn where to turn away?

Fresh snow helps a lot.  Warning, do not follow tracks out of bounds at Wildcat if you are not prepared for much more difficult conditions than you saw off lower Wildcat.  Same as any mountain.

Thing is, according to the map, those are not out of bounds. In the ones below polecat I did notice several trees with orange tape around them, which I assume means "go this way so you don't end up out of bounds". But none of the ones where I got stuck had anything similar.

I wrote that poorly.  Yes those glades you skied are in bonds.  Just wanted to mention there are more severe glades out of bonds.
