Wisconsin’s Wilmot Mountain turns 75 this season, and is celebrating its birthday with some outstanding offers and events.
Reported to be the nation’s fourth oldest resort, Wilmot is located 30 minutes south of Lake Geneva, putting it just north of Chicagoland. So, it draws most of its snowseekers from the region, but also attracts boarders and skiers from Milwaukee and Rockford.
One way it's making sure they all have fun is by making all its usual halfday lift tickets ($33 weekday mornings, $43 weekend mornings) good from open to close at no extra charge, a $10 saving on the upgrade boarders and skiers usually have to buy.
It’ll also host the return of the US Airbag for its second visit of the season on Feb. 18 (contact the resort at 262-862-2301 for ticket details)
Another special: $15 lift tickets Monday through Thursday for those living in nearby Illinois and Wisconsin counties, and on Tuesday, anyone living in Wisconsin gets on its 25 runs and four terrain parks for the same price.
That price also applies to the new last-year 20-lane tubing hill, reportedly one of the biggest in the country. Tubers have been clocked here at up to 50 mph on the 1,000-foot lanes. That hill is served by its own covered conveyor and lodge. See the details here.
Ski or ride and go tubing the same day and get $10 off tubing tix, too.
