I've been going to WIlmot since I was a baby and I can tell you Vail did nothing for it except raise the prices, an 80$ ticket is not worth it when the tickets on real mountains cost $100. I highly recommend Alpine Valley instead!(...More

Went to Wilmot to try a different ski area. We live in the Sheboygan/Green Bay area so we usually go to Little Switzerland, Cascade Mountain, Devils head, granite peak or up north. We took a chance and headed south. I wouldn't call this place terrible....More

Its a really small hill. I think it's a perfect place to learn or take kids. The places is nice and everyone is friendly. My main complaint is small runs which I would compare to indoor skiing in Dubai.
