What started as a miserable day thru no fault other than my own was eclipsed fully by the service and kindness above and beyond any customer can expect of a vail resort associate. She truly saved my days experience on the slopes and to a large extent my safety.
It was an extremely cold morning and unfortunately in my haste to suit up for the slopes behind my SUV I got out of my car and the wind blew my door shot and locked myself out of my car with my keys, cell phone in the car.
Embarrassing to say that I was not wearing my jacket yet and was merely wearing inner garments and a normal shirt. I was bitterly cold.
Fortunately for me, Jennifer Smith, an employee at Wilmot Vail resort happened to be walking the lot when I approached her and she immediately offered assistance to use her cell phone and call for assistance. She wanted to make sure I could stay warm and be safe.
I am 2 hours from home and calling the wife for extra keys or calling AAA car service in a remote area is challenging. I decided to call Triple A car service and unfortunately they would require tracking and a call back from the person making the call.
Recognizing this dilemma, she did not hesitate to offer that I keep her phone, a total stranger to her, so that I can catch or anticipate the call back from Triple A.
This ordeal lasted 4 hours and throughout this time period, she periodically checked on my situation out of concern for my safety and wellbeing that day. She offered me a cup of coffee thinking that I did not have funds to buy one.
4 hours later, Triple A service arrived and I returned her phone. I ended up enjoying the slopes for the rest of the afternoon.
The condition of slopes and the organization of folks on the lifts were nothing short of exemplary as well.
Jennifer’s customer assistance overshadowed what would have otherwise been a horrible experience. It was as if I did not have a mishap at all.
Wilmot, a relatively small neighborhood ski resort rivals the service quality that I would expect from bigger Colorado vail resorts.
I am from Chicago but will continue to be an Epic pass holder.
Kudos to your mountain condition, praises to you service!!

Wilmot was an icon of a ski bump. What it didn't have in vertical it made up in charm. It is now as appealing as a hospital waiting room. Sterile, boring, and generic. So sad, but Alpine Valley still exists. ... Full Review
They do a great job. Regardless of mother nature ... Full Review
Why is it that this specific resort is unable to anticipate and/or make snow!?... Full Review
I have skied at Wilmot for over 50 years. I am so profoundly disappointed in what happened for the 2018-2019 season. I cant imagine anyone more excited than me when Vail bought this resort and saved it from being a history footnote. Congrats to the corp who made all the improvements in the lifts, the lighting and the runs in 2017, but 2018-2019 was an embarrassment.
Wilmot was last resort to open in area. For some reason they didn't blow early and then after 2 1/2 weeks of cold weather, they finally opened to a warm snap and rain and had to close again.
I am guessing that the best run, Stateline, was open for around 2-3 weeks all season. Did you even blow snow over there? The Sledding hill didn't open until mid-late January. What the heck? Who ran this place this year? Was there a water shortage that prevented you from getting open and having the entire resort covered in snow? Lastly, seriously, cant you have a better webcam on your site? You point one camera at the deadest area of the resort. It never got me pumped up to want to be there.
The food and beverage was fine and the facilities are greatly improved
Profoundly disappointed with the management of the hill this year. ... Full Review
Wilmont is not a mountain its a hill . Stop points are very small or short distance which can be dangerous on a crowded day . If you want a great experience pick a weekday or week night to ski and the hill is yours to roam . Staff is friendly and courteous which is a plus but for a weekend excursion go to Alpine which is 25 minutes north .... Full Review
we drove the hour and a half up to come visit Wilmot today. when we arrived we were INCREDIBLY disappointed. this is not a mountain but rather a hill. the lines for the lifts were at least a few dozen people long. the most absurd thing about wilmot is the pricing. it would have cost me $53 to board from 6 pm to 10pm. there’s no nighttime discount. other places in wisconsin (cascade, devils head...) are 5x the size or more, are less expensive, and have faster lift lines. if you’re going to learn how to ski or snowboard it seems adequate but if you’re anything above beginner go somewhere else. ...

This is the NEW Wilmot and it's really not like the old Wilmot at all. With the sizeable investment that Vail put into the hill, the results are almost all positive. New Dopplemayr quads replacing who know what (and who cares) make getting up the hill so much more efficient. The staff has a completely new attitude and are all quite nice and professional. With a completely remodeled lodge and investment into areas shuttered 20 years ago, this has brought a small hill that escaped death a few times into this century. With modernization has come a hefty price increase. Tickets are over $50 now, but you get what you pay for....and now you're not paying for a 1965 Riblet double chair about to collapse - and that's a good thing. ... Full Review
I live in Wisconsin. Of all the ski "hills" that I have visited, this was THE worst. All of the runs blur together. It's one big, white, ski hill without trees or "fun" trails. I am an intermediate skier. This was not at all a fun place for me. If you want to practice skills or maybe learn to ski, I think this is fine but the cost relative to the variability and what is actually there is ridiculous. Also, it was extremely overcrowded. Lift lines (despite all of them being open) were very long. I am glad I had all my own equipment because the ski rental line was literally a 2-3 hour wait and people were complaining. Overall, this place had a very "urban" and "chaotic" feel to it. I am more accustomed to peaceful runs where you can "spread out" on the mountain. I felt like I had to wait in line just to get down a run. Hated it. Would never go back. ... Full Review
Tried to ski there today and granted it is the saturday of a LWE but had a terriable expexpereince.
Long line ( estimated 15-20 mins) to purchase rental ticket.
Similar length line to attempt to get boots. 2 children and myself in our party and they were out of our size for 2 of us. Patience wearing thin at this stage.
Then started to face the line to for ski's which extended out of the lodge and was barely moving. Looked like another 45 mins-1 hour. We aborted our days skiing but did give us a refund.
We ran into another family that were next to us in line and they also cancelled when they couldn't get correct size boots for their two children.
Will give the mountain another chance but they need to control the amount of rentals as today they had sold more tickets than they had inventory for.... Full Review
