80th Anniversary Celebration

Saturday February 10, 2018

Times: All Day

80th Anniversary Celebration

In February of 1938, Walter Stopa opened the gates of Wilmot Hills Ski Area for what he thought was going to be a small group, the Snow Chase Ski Club. Instead of the private organization he thought would show up, word got around about the ski hills, and on opening day there were 250-350 skiers lined up for the single tow rope he had running!

Now in 2018, we want to celebrate the hard work of the past 80 years that has made Wilmot Mountain the premier ski & snowboard location of the Midwest!

This is an all day event with family friendly activities and fun for everyone. Hang out in the lodge, have a meal at Walt's Tavern, get some time on the slopes, and spend time with the whole family.

Day's Events:

  • Fireworks
  • Music
  • Presentation
  • Cake Cutting
  • Ice Sculpting
  • Giveaways
