About the Ski Resort

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.
