Let it snow! With snow on the ground, it’s the season to be skiing, tubing, and snowboarding at Wilmot Mountain. This awesome winter wonderland located in Wilmot, Wisconsin is a gem for visitors to the Kenosha Area looking for snowy adventure.  Those hitting the slopes can enjoy a variety of activities including skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. The best part is that the property offers lessons, equipment rentals, and chair lift service or people mover service to the top of the ski hill and tubing hills, respectively!

Wilmot Mountain is the perfect venue for beginning and intermediate snow enthusiasts. It features 23 trails which vary in complexity for both skiers and snowboarders. Lessons will help you to master the fundamentals, or refresh your basic knowledge.  Snowboarders have their own Terrain Park to enjoy with all sorts of stairs, rails, jumps, walls, and more.  Finally, snow tubing has its own run with a people mover belt to bring you and your tube back to the top of the hill for another round of fun.  With so many areas to play, families can stay together or spread out over the mountain to each master a new skill.

If you haven’t been to the mountain in a while, Vail Resorts acquired the property several years ago and invested $13 million into renovations and equipment.  The snowmaking equipment was upgraded allowing for more snow earlier in the season, and for it to be produced faster than ever before – this year Mother Nature has supplied plenty of snow, but the equipment keeps the powder fresh on the hills.  There are new and renovated buildings, as well, including a dedicated children’s ski school area.  

There are quick service restaurants on site that offer easy and convenient refueling between activities. Hot and cold foods are available, so there are plenty of options for everyone in your group. While Walt’s Tavern is closed for the 2020-2021 season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is a full service bar and restaurant that is regularly open to the public offering a fantastic menu with sit-down style dining and wonderful views of the Wilmot Mountain property. 

So, dig out your warm winter outerwear, find your gloves and hats, and come out to play in the snow! Be sure to check out the Wilmot Mountain website for current procedures, ticket booking, and snow conditions. You’ll be on your way to Kenosha Fun in no time!
