Full review

This place was recommended to us by a friend who's race team practiced at Wilmot about ten years ago. I will never go back. These people have no idea how to groom a hill. While I understand this is only the "midwest", the conditions on the hill were downright dangerous. The hill was nothing but a sheet of ice. Beyond the lousy skiing conditions, there were rude employees every where you turned. While we didn't rent our equipment, you have to pass through the rental building to get to the lifts. The rental building was in a state of disarray - staff yelling at people (adults included) with a resulting mass of confusion and several children crying.

When I tried to give feedback, the manager was clearly not interested. It was going to remain "business as usual". The message being we have plenty of customers and that they don't need any suggestions.

Wilmot is for people who have never skied anywhere else and just don't realize how bad it is.
