**We are currently closed for renovations. Our Office is located at the Tubing Chalet just South of the Ski/Snowboard Entrance and is open 8am to 4pm Monday thru Friday.** 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.

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!

The ski chalet has been completely renovated and is a great place to relax and enjoy some food and drinks. The mountain itself is what it is, a small hill. Nothing really steep, no fun natural features, and no jumps in the park. Good for...More

I am not an outside cold weather person, but I took my nephews there and everything was amazing. I love the inside fire place. Went our couple times to take pictures of the kids but nothing better than the warmest inside.

The Wilmot Mountain snow tubing hills are fast and fun. The 2 hour rental time was okay, but 3 hours would have been better. Wasn't too busy on the day we went. Seemed to space out the crowd by only selling certain amount of spots...More
