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.
