Wilmot Mountain, Wilmot

(1/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Wilmot Mountain is a ski area in Kenosha County, Wisconsin. It is located in the Census-designated place of Wilmot and lies in both the Town of Randall and the Town of Salem, just north of the border with Illinois. Located in the southern region of Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine, Wilmot Mountain is the result of glaciation. The self-proclaimed "Matterhorn of the Midwest" was founded by Walter Stopa in 1938 after a thorough research of the area’s topography. With a vertical drop of about 200ft, it is a relatively small hill. It is also one of the few hills where the mountain is wide open, with few trees or barriers to crossing the hill. A skier can transverse several runs while skiing downhill. Night skiing is available on the entire hill.Wilmot Mountain is located 40 miles south-southwest of Milwaukee and 55mi north of Chicago and has been owned by the same family since it was founded. It still retains a non-corporate look and feel, from the vintage lifts to the huge open fireplace. Most days small aircraft from the nearby Westosha airport can be seen high above, circling the hill. On January 19th, Vail Resorts purchased the resort for an unknown amount, with promises to update the base area and terrain park.

  • It is a mountain not in Illinois, one of the few ski areas. I think about everyone from beginners to advanced courses there. Facilities are recently renovated and very clean. Prior to net purchase lift ticket office was lined quite so I recommend the.
