Villa Olivia

Named after the original owner's daughter, the Villa Olivia estate was built in the early 1900's in the town of Bartlett. Among the luxuries of the estate, there was a golf course that now serves as the cornerstone of the Villa Olivia Country Club, purchased in 1966 by the Corrado Family. The golf course is just the beginning of what is offered at Villa Olivia. In 1968, the Corrado's realized the underutilized potential of their property during the winter months. As a result, a ski facility was opened with enhancements finished in 1975. The ski operation currently offers 12 lighted downhill runs serviced by one four-person chair lift and six tow rope lifts. The ski facility is the most professionally run in the immediate Chicagoland area and currently hosts the Chicago Tribune Ski School aimed at beginners and intermediate skiers. It is the ideal facility for the novice skier just getting his/her first taste of the sport or the advanced skier perfecting his/her ability. The facility has complete ski snowmaking machines, snow-grooming vehicles cross country trails, ski equipment rentals, and clubhouse facility to service that most important time when the skiers are not perfecting their craft. Since the opening of the golf course and its clubhouse facility, the clubhouse has been host to countless weddings and banquets and currently serves both the Elgin and Bartlett Rotary Club luncheons on a weekly basis. The clubhouse has two full banquet rooms and can accommodate up to 850 guests. It is booked on a year round basis and is one of the finer facilities in the northwest suburban area.

Pros: Small Ski Resort with new Quad Chairlift, good beginners areas for learning, close drive to Chicagoland area, good terrain park for practicing jumps.

Cons: Overpriced lift tickets, short runs, tow ropes in the beginners areas tend to get people knock down,

They just installed a quad chairlift last Nov 2011 and it is now operating. This quad chairlift have a cage steel bars that you can bring down while riding it to prevent you from falling off the chairlift. So, it has a safety cage. The resort is great enough for learning the snow sports...skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. If you don't want to drive for more than one hour from Chicago area to go to a decent ski resorts then this place is perfect. The lift tickets are a bit pricey though...the last time I been here Feb 2012..it was $39 per person for non-residence of Bartlett city....and its $34 for residence. Then this year 2014, the prices for lift tickets are $39 per person for all day and night ticket on the weekends and holidays. On the regular weekdays they only open and operate from 4pm to 10pm with lift tickets for $29 per person. The snow tubing tickets are around $20 per person. They should add magic carpets though for the beginners area slopes just like any other upper Mid-West ski resorts, so that you don't see too many beginners get knocked down by the tow ropes all the time. The snowboard/ski terrain park is good enough for practicing air jumps. Overall, it is still my preferred resort for just practicing my skiing and snowboarding abilities every Winter season, then I go to bigger resorts around upper Mid-West.
