Beautification Award to Wilmot Mountain

Congratulations to Wilmot Mountain, a Vail Resorts Company, on receiving a Chamber Beautification Award to be presented at our 102nd Annual Meeting on July 31st at The Club at
Strawberry Creek.

For the last 80 years, Wilmot Mountain in Western Kenosha County has enchanted families as one of the Midwest’s premier Winter destinations for snow sport activities. With nearly 120 skiable acres, 23 trails, 7 lifts, 2 surface conveyor lifts and progression terrain parks with a double high speed rope tow, there is enough terrain to challenge experts to beginners, day or night. For those who are not up to skiing or snowboarding, there is always a fun day waiting at the tubing area with 22 lanes and 2 surface conveyor lifts for transport back to the top. Wilmot Mountain makes skiing, snowboarding, and tubing an easy, accessible, affordable and fun trip for the whole family.

Wilmot Mountain was purchased by Vail Resorts of Colorado and underwent a complete resort transformation including three new four-person chairlifts, combined with a new high-speed rope tow in the terrain park and two new surface conveyor lifts in the beginner area. The beginner area was enhanced and a state-of-the-art children’s ski and snowboard center was created adjacent to the learning terrain at the base of the ski area. There were significant improvements to the snowmaking infrastructure to increase the snowmaking capacity and allow Wilmot Mountain to open more terrain earlier in the season. Even the base lodge was transformed with the addition of 400 seats to offer seating for families and groups and the redesign to Walt’s Tavern includes a new lounge and bar where parents are able to watch their children ski and snowboard and enjoy a comfortable setting. The changes had greater impact in the area too, as Wilmot employs hundreds of people during the peak season.

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.
