Mt. Brighton Ski Resort Where Epic Begins

About the Mountain

Vail Resort’s $13.2 million of renovations completed in the fall of 2016 at Wilmot Mountain will bridge 75 years of skiing tradition with new lifts, state-of-the-art snowmaking, dedicated Children’s Learning Center, base lodge transformation, and expanded terrain parks.  The unique runs at Wilmot Mountain offer varied terrain for all skiers and snowboarders; from novices stepping onto the snow for the very first time to experts learning to further push themselves and their sport. Wilmot Mountain also offers snow tubing that is fun for the whole family. 

History of Wilmot Mountain

In 1938, Walter Stopa leased the property from a farmer for skiing and called it Wilmot Hills.  With rubber hoses, aluminum pipes and sprinkler heads, along with water and air, Wilmot Mountain was the first to master the art of snowmaking. 

Chairlifts arrived in the late 1960’s and over the years a full-service dining area, Terrain Park and tubing hill were added. 

Now with more than 20 runs, Two Terrain Parks and an all new beginner’s area with magic carpets, Wilmot Mountain has something for everyone. 

In January 2016, Vail Resorts welcomed Wilmot Mountain into its Epic family of resorts. Wilmot Mountain is truly the place where Epic begins.
