WILMOT, Wisc. – Aug. 1, 2017 – Wilmot Mountain, Wisconsin’s premier ski and snowboard area which recently underwent $13 million in improvements, announced today that Labor Day is the last chance to lock in the lowest available price on passes for the 2017-2018 season.

The Epic Local Pass is ideal for those looking to ski or snowboard locally as well as hit the slopes out West. For $639, pass holders are granted unlimited, unrestricted skiing and snowboarding locally at Wilmot Mountain, as well as at Vail Resorts’ iconic western destinations including Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin with limited restrictions in Park City, Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood. It also includes a total of 10 days at Vail, Beaver Creek, Whistler Blackcomb and Stowe with holiday restrictions. In addition, every child’s pass to Wilmot is an Epic Local Pass ($339 for ages five to 12) which means the kids in the family automatically have access out West.

The investment marks the most significant one-time influx of capital improvements in Wilmot’s history and has entirely re-imagined the guest experience.
