All I know is I don't have to ever ski Wilmot Mountain again
Seeing that map brought back some not-so-great memories of having no option but to ski it and places like it.
Ski hills like Wilmot *are* great for getting people interested in skiing, however.
Thanks for posting this.
Wilmot is still the closest option for most people in NW suburbs of Chicago. Since Vail took over, they've poured a lot of money into the lodge, snowmaking, lifts, and ski school. Probably the best deal around to get Vail/BC level instruction for a fraction of the resort prices.
While it's not more than a couple hundred vertical feet, it still wets the appetite for flatlanders to get on skis/boards and seek out more challenging terrain.
