Downhill skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing are right here in your backyard. Villa Olivia is just a short drive from anywhere in the Chicagoland area. With 100% Snowmaking, Ski & Snowboard lessons for all levels, and rental equipment available, we have something for everyone. The hill includes seven runs, a chairlift, six rope tows, and a tubing hill. Check out our new quad chairlift that was installed in 2011 and our new Ski Lodge which opened in 2012. Visit the Ski Lodge for all winter sport transactions including slope tickets, tube tickets, rentals, merchandise, lessons and lockers.
