Granite Peak Ski Area has quickly become Wisconsin’s premier ski destination, and reaches new heights every year. The tallest vertical drop in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula, Granite Peak has the ability to make snow early and keep it late with superior snowmaking equipment. With the recent improvements at Granite Peak, it’s getting harder to make a distinction between skiing out West and skiing close to home. Granite Peak has the terrain variety, the long runs and the reliable snow that you’d expect to find only after spending a few hours in an airplane. Luckily, it’s close to home, and easy to reach with a short drive on well-maintained interstate highways – no airport hassles, no rental car, no long travel day...just great skiing. More terrain, more variety, more lifts!

Check out the expanded beginner's area, complete with a 600' Sun Kid Wonder Carpet, beginner mogul field and rollers, and updated Enchanted Forest Trail with animal figures. More than ten new features have been added to Granite Peak's expansive terrain parks, including a new pyramid feature.

Granite Peak has the largest and best maintained parks in the Midwest with a variety of jumps, moguls and more for all levels of skiers and snowboarders - including over 35 jibs and 15 jumps! Their constant dedication to these terrain parks has earned them the designation as the top Midwest snowboarding park by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.

Granite Peak now has eight chairlifts and 74 runs, including several new expert chutes with 60 - 70° grades. Glade skiing and all new terrain parks have been added, as well as new lifts to get you to the top quickly, even on the busiest days. Choose from steep chutes at the top or Western-style, tree-lined runs meandering through gorgeous stands of sugar maples and red oaks. Granite Peak now has six terrain parks, novice and intermediate territory, all connecting to the user-friendly chairlifts. There’s plenty of fun in store for younger skiers with the supervised children’s center and the Enchanted Forest tree skiing area. Now your ideal family ski vacation is only a short drive away!

Ski Longer With 100% snowmaking capacity provided by one of the most powerful snowmaking systems in the Midwest, Granite Peak now offers a five-month ski season that can last from mid-November to mid-April. Eight full-time Snowcat groomers roll seven days a week, along with 500 advanced technology snowguns. All Granite Peak trails are groomed and buffed daily, and the half-pipe moguls and terrain park are groomed by their very own staff. Granite Peak also offers night skiing from 4pm to 9pm.

In addition to great skiing and snowboarding, this year Granite Peak is offering an exciting schedule of live music concerts featuring national and regional bands playing rock, reggae and high-energy country. The Sundance Chalet and 10th Mountain Chalet now in the upper level of the original historic chalet will be the sites for these bands as well as weekly music by local entertainers. Granite Peak has its usual long list of special events, holiday celebrations and family packages scheduled, as well as bratwurst cookouts, fireworks and sleigh rides.
