Granite Peak Snow Report

Our best mid December conditions in years!   Cold temperatures are here to stay and we are making snow around the clock! We currently have 75 acres of terrain open, 54% of our primary terrain, with a 20"-40" base, groomed to perfection. 10-15% new terrain opening each weekend, with 100% of primary terrain expected prior to Christmas. We have more than doubled our snowmaking capacity this year, which means we will have more terrain open earlier!  Plan your visit to Granite Peak this winter!

Notes on Surface Conditions

Depending on recent weather we list the groomed runs as follows:

  • Power-tilled: the general groomed surface we often refer to as corduroy.
  • Packed Powder: groomed surface when 4 or more inches of snow has fallen during the last few days.
  • Powder: 4 or more inches of new snow since surface was last groomed.
  • Spring Conditions: occurs during warm days and cool nights of spring. Groomed nightly, usually firm in early morning, breaking a soft corn-snow surface mid-day and often soft in afternoon.
