Since 1938, Wilmot Mountain has enchanted families as one of the Midwest’s premier Winter destinations for snowsport activities. Just a short drive away from Chicago and Milwaukee, they have made skiing, snowboarding, and tubing an easy, accessible, affordable and fun trip for the whole family. With the recent Vail Purchase, Wilmot Mountain is undergoing a $13.2 million renovation. This renovation includes new lifts, a base area transformation, an expanded state-of-the-art snowmaking system, a new kid's ski and snowboard school with an enhanced beginner's area, and a new terrain park with high speed rope tow. Having converted thousands of first-timers into lifelong skiers and riders, and now with the opportunity to take that passion to Vail Resorts’ iconic western mountains, Wilmot Mountain is truly the place where Epic begins.

I attended the Rugged Maniac 5K. I don't have a lot to say regarding the skiing at Wilmot, being it's not applicable. The grounds were nice and there was adequate food and refreshments. The parking was good and the event was well organized. I am...More

Title says it all. It is quite well-run and has a convenient road access. It is a very good outing for youth, and even their parents, if they are interested!
