DescriptionThe Wildcat slashes, blasts, carves, rips through and floats over everything the mountain throws at you. It wraps everything you loved about the legendary Bibby into a new package and ties the bow with stronger, lighter, and tighter construction—the natural evolution of tucking almost another decade of experience under our belts. Mustache Rocker allows for incredible float and maneuverability in tight trees and chutes, while a long effective edge and stiff profile provide crud-busting, corduroy-carving prowess that’ll make your friends on traditional all-mountain skis jealous. It’s our legacy, but it’s your ticket. Get on the cat or get left behind.

Look at those graphics.....righteous
I normally consider myself more of a "Dog Person", but these skis have made me a cat lover for sure! The wildcats are one ferocious pair of felines when they're on the prowl for the goods. They literally pounce, slash & slay everything in their path, leaving carnage in their wake. If you don't feel like a badass rockstar when you ride these things, then you're doing it wrong!
Love these boards. 2nd day on them Silverado chair at Squaw opened after being closed for almost 2 weeks. Fresh tracks were incredible. Responsive and smooth skis that aren’t afraid to charge. Best skis I’ve skied on in years.
The Wildcats Live Uo to the Hype
I’m 5’11”, 160 lbs., 59 years old. I’ve been skiing almost whole life. It still is a major part of my life. I pore over ski reviews constantly trying to find the ski that will suit my skiing. I resisted the Wildcats and the former Bibby skis based on the “charger” part of their “playful charger” label. So, I’ve been buying many skis over the last few years trying to find one that suits me, a ski that feels natural, intuitive, quick, yet adapts to variable snow conditions. I never found one, until now. I didn’t think a charger would fit into that mold, even a playful one. But, after two days of skiing 12 inches of light and dry, wind blown open bowls, breakable crust, groomers, and cut up end of the day snow, I realize I should have been on a charger for years. I like skiing trees that get tighter and tighter where there seems to be no way out. I get a lot of satisfaction out of finding that way out especially if it leads to an untracked stretch of powder nobody else has discovered. I thought that a charger would not be quick turning enough to allow me to do that. The Wildcats are light and quick in these situations yet still can rip g.s. turns in cut up snow and remain pretty stable. My only regret is I didn’t order a pair years ago.
Goes to 11
I ordered The Wildcat in 184 and it was at my door a week later. I've had the chance to use these skis on everything from crusty morning laps to knee deep pow days and I absolutely can't get enough of them. They have quickly taken over my quiver and I've been neglecting my other skis like redheaded stepchildren. The Wildcats will lay down big ol' gs turns at Mach 10 with impressive stability and control. These fat bois really bite into the crust and do surprisingly well through moguls. For being such a large ski they feel fairly light and agile, especially if you can keep yourself centered in the sweet spot. These skis have no qualms about boosting cliffs or snaking through trees at life threatening speeds. They encourage you to send it and get a bit reckless, seriously they want to be hucked. They feel as comfortable and stable in the air as they do on the ground. My favorite part about The Wildcat is how they come to life in a few inches (or more) of snow. It's amazing to me how much better these get in the powder, you won't be able to wipe the smile off your face. They become SO much more lively, responsive, and forgiving. (it's almost like they were made for it...) I couldn't believe how they handled at speed in extremely tight trees and bumps or how they sailed through the flats with ease. I didn't buy these skis as a daily driver at all, but none of my 5 other pairs of skis feel so well rounded and fun to ski, every day, in any condition. I've also never owned a pair of skis that garnered so much attention and stoke in the lift lines, it's an interesting feeling. I think it's safe to say I'm hooked and won't be looking anywhere else for skis anytime soon. The Wildcats have blow away my expectations, they truly do go to 11.
