Visited Wilmot/Vail last week and talked to one of the new Vail managers about the area. Construction is pretty much on schedule and in the process of installing new lift towers. Area will have all new snowmaking plant and improved pump capacity. All lifts either being completely replaced or renovated (needed badly for the ancient lifts). Lodge is being gutted and completely redone with a new building for the ski school. There is a commitment to bring Vail quality to all aspects of the area but I am sure it will come at a cost. More to be done next year but not sure what that will be.
Took a few pictures which I am posting.
