Listen skiers, tubers and general snow lovers, ain’t no mountain high enough to keep me from getting to the slopes this season, babe.  Just call my name and I’ll be at Wilmot Mountain in a hurry, you don’t have to worry because they thrive on winter’s cold!  Wilmot has it all, everything from tubing to skiing, Santa Claus to Elvis and lots of musical events and parties to keep it fun and fluffy.

But before we get into the schedule, let’s talk tubing…my favorite!  It’s open for the season!  Tubing pricing starts at $27 for unlimited tubing Monday through Thursday, and reaches $36 during peak weekend hours. This year, Wilmot will launch a special Tubing 4-Pack offer for $69, available Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays. In addition, those who want to tube and ski or snowboard can take advantage of Wilmot Mountain’s Ski to Tube/Tube to Ski program, which offers a $10 ticket discount when guests take advantage of both winter sports. The package delivers a seamless seasonal incentive for avid winter skiers and riders and is valid for 14 days after original purchase.

Wilmot also offers a Charity Tubing Program, inviting 501c3 organizations to enjoy an evening of tubing at a special rate. Wilmot will then donate a portion of proceeds back to the charity. Charities with more than 20 participants receive an unlimited evening tubing rate of $22 per person with $5 from each tuber donated back to the designated charity. The Charity Tubing Program is offered Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and requires advanced booking (seven-day minimum for groups 20 - 125 people and 14-day minimum for groups larger 125 people.)
