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 have been visiting Wilmot Mountain about 14 years. Given the location and weather, this is the best ski area here in Chicago land. Ski slopes are usually well groomed. Good ski experience for beginners as well as advanced skiers. Friendly personal. Daily and night ski. There was lot invested in the area and you can see the results.

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!

What a stunning place right in our backyard. The upgrades throughout are fantastic all throughout the indoors and out. Very impressive and welcoming. The staff are very helpful in each area you go. We had an issue with our little guy just not being ready for the ski lesson and they were good enough to refund for us. We will... More

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 2 hours of messing around then it gets boring. Come here for really early beginners,... More

We have lived in the area for 28 years and spent a lot of time skiing with our kids at Wilmot Mt. Well, the kids are all grown up, and Wilmot Mountain was recently sold to the Epic group. After many years, we decided to take a trip back in time and see what changes have been made. We ended... More

Great ski school. Teachers are really good with children and facility was recently upgraded...BIG difference. Magic carpet. Ski runs are pretty decent for midwest and lifts are in good condition. Not so good: - Food is very expensive. - All Sundays the best runs are blocked for races most of the morning and early afternoon.

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 for each time. The lines to get down the hill were short. However, the line... More

We met family at Wilmot Mountain. The kids and younger adults all had fun tubing. They were a bit surprised there was a two hour time limit for the $25 price which doesn't allow much time to come inside to warm up. At the tubing lodge, the only food is concession food, and not particularly good, either. The cheese sticks... More
