Granite Peak is a mountain, a place where you can ski for 3-4 days and not get bored in 3-4 hours. And because we're a mountain, you'll spend less time riding the lifts and more time skiing the mountain with our high speed 6-passenger and 2 high speed quad chairs, not to mention 2 other chairs and 2 conveyor lifts. And it's not just skiing more in the daylight, Granite Peak features nighttime skiing; give it a try, nothing beats skiing in the moonlight.

Compare Granite Peak to your favorite Midwest ski area. You'll find that Granite Peak is taller, has more runs, more new chairlifts, and a new base village.

My sons learned to ski at hills in southern Wisconsin, but they learned to become good skiers at Granite Peak because of the expert instructors and the variety of runs with different degrees of difficulty. It's always challenging and once you're down, you can get back up the mountain quickly due to the high-speed lifts."
