Pinkham Notch, New Hampshire- On April 8th at around 3:30 p.m., northern New Hampshire will be shrouded in darkness. April 8th’s Solar Eclipse will create a moment of totality for northern portions of New England. This totality path will cross many ski resorts across the Northeast. In New Hampshire, no ski resort will be 100% in that range (except if The Balsams magically reopens), but Wildcat Mountain will be at 98% totality for this once-in-a-lifetime event.

In honor of the Solar Eclipse, Wildcat Mountain is hosting a party. There will be skiing, a BBQ, alcohol, a costume contest, and crafts. Here’s the official pun-filled event description from Wildcat Mountain:

Experience the Wild in a new light! Wildcat is gearing up for a mind-blowing 98% totality during the Total Solar Eclipse on April 8th. Get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime skiing and riding experience, plus a pop-up BBQ and Bar that’s bound to eclipse all your expectations! Lift operations will pause at 3pm during the peak totality and will resume after totality, spinning until 5pm. Costume contest, [and] edipse-themed crafts.”

Other Northeast ski resorts, like Bolton Valley, Stowe, and Saddleback, will also have solar eclipse parties. We’ll keep you posted here at Unofficial Networks about where you can check out the Solar Eclipse on April 8th.
