Remember that Wisconsin is NOT Colorado or Utah. Skiing at Wilmot isn't going to give yout the Beaver Creek or Keystone experience, so don't judge it that way. Despite what some may say I think the skiing compares very aptly with Alpine Valley, although with alpine you get a bit more variety in trail and tree terms. It does blow places like Grand Geneva and Villa Olivia away though.
The skiing is easy but fun, and you can make the runs last longer by switching trails every so often and making wide turns. As an advanced skiier, the terrain parks were fun but not great, and the downhill skiing is fun, at least locally, especially at night.
Twirpy little snowboarders do act like they own the place, but yelling at them seems to do the trick of getting them out of the cutting habit. The J Team is a very good learning experience for younger skiiers, and my boarder friends seem to love it.
Although the place is old (est. 1938), it does have a nice nostalgic feel about it and the lifts could be faster but are still okay. Nothing compared to Alpine Valley's lifts like the valley flyer, though. And as for the fact that some stop a lot, the little kids should stay AT THE ROPE TOW!
All in all a good place locally but if you have the money, go toKeystone every weekend and make this place a weekday no-brainer activity.
Keep in mind that I'm judging this place LOCALLY, in comparison with other nearby places.
