Villa Olivia in Bartlett is the place to go to get your winter excitement fix.

Villa Olivia was acquired by the Bartlett Park District in 2010. It draws visitors from other states and even other countries.

 

Its operations consist of a 18-hole golf course during the spring, summer and fall, and then some of the back 9 transforms into ski slopes during the winter.

It features seven downhill runs, with one of them being the terrain park.

For easy access from the bottom to the top, Villa Olivia, which makes its own snow, offers a chair lift.

You can ski or snowboard, but the most popular attraction is the tubing hill, which consists of four tubing lanes and a "magic carpet" to get you and your tube back up the hill

Villa Olivia also offers equipment rentals and lessons for all ages.
