Wisconsin's best place to ski!

Granite Peak is easy to get to (about a mile off the interstate) and reasonably priced. They often have 2 for 1 specials, or discounts after 4 pm.

We skied at Granite Peak and it was a swell time kind of pricey and not all the runs were open but for the time I was there. It was fun. I rated the hill a 4 only because there was a bunch of runs closed. And for this time of year they should all be open. Other than that... More

First time there & will definitely go back. It was a 4 hour drive from my house in Illinois. Go during the week as it's not crowded. Nice groaned trails. I took a ski lesson as it was the first time on the skies this year and had a awesome instructor.

Love the variety of runs for all levels of skiers or snowboarders. I only wish I lived closer would be here all the time. The food they have is much better then other ski destinations in the Midwest. The staff are all very friendly.

I like Granite Peak! Is it Colorado or Canada skiing? Of course not, but if you want something that is a short drive from Chicago instead of a flight, you can't beat it. There are closer hills (calling anything in the MW a mountain is a stretch), but this offers some of the highest vertical and a good variety of... More

Got seriously busy in the late afternoon but we were done by then. Good live music in the lodge. Food is soso. good bloody mary! Bought lift tickets well... More

It's been seven straight years I took my family to Granite Peak for New Years skiing trip and this was the worst one. I thought last year they ware badly organized. Oh Boy! I was wrong. New Years Eve only two main lifts operating and one on far west side of the slopes. It was a disaster. More waiting in... More

It is what it is...a foothill... in the Midwest; but twice as long as the others in WI. So go! Great snow making for December. Quick lines at the end of the day. Plus 2 for 1 tickets. 1/2 of the mountain was closed when we were there..but if you do your research about certain day only runs open, you... More

This was not our best ski trip to Granite Peak. We decided to drive the extra couple of hours north, hoping for better snow than the Devils Lake area. However Granite Peak did not satisfy. Only about 2/3 of the mountain is open. The top of the peak is steep and very icy, and the rest of the hill consists... More
