Firsthand Reports


So, Wilmot is fine... kind of. The runs are crazy short, and lines for the lift are crazy long, and there are 20:1 kids to adults on the weekends. i cant even finish a run without worrying about running into a child. The last time I was there kids were playing on the hills on the back of the mountain rolling huge snowballs onto the paths while people were trying to ski/board and the staff didnt seem to care at all! tldr; its not anywhere near worth the cost of the lift ticket. if it were $40 a day i probably wouldnt complain

8 hours ago - Wilmot Mountain.

Devils Head +

Trails towards the double diamond were ice and bad to ski on and going towards the bunny hills they were good, lines were short, lifts were painfully slow

19 hours ago - Devils Head.

Variable Conditions 1"

Good conditions and only a 30 wait to get on the main lift on a Sunday. Some runs are still not open.

2 day(s) ago - Granite Peak Ski Area.


Wilmot was super nice, but I don't like how the runs are super short and how the lifts are just so slow and long. The operators stop at literally anything. A kid can swing and they'll stop it. Miss the old charm of wilmot. Sad...

I was there Friday night again. The skiing was good. All the runs are open. They could have groomed a little better. Some of the snow was chunky.

How is the snow? After recent rain is it icy? Anybody.
