I am a season pass holder. The early opening this year, thanks to the great snow making ability, is a testament to Granite Peak's desire to make it the best ski hell in the Midwest. Apres ski and season activities make this a must stop...More

Outstanding fall colors, came up for a getaway. To see the colors and take the ski lift but it was snowing , so we just drove through. It was worth the drive . If you have the time come on up you won't be disappointed.

We took the sunset chairlift ride on a cloudy/hazy day. Didn't matter because it was so beautiful. I cant even imagine how wonderful it would be on a beautiful day. We'll be back to find out!

Outstanding facilities!!!!!! Comfy, warmish high speed lifts, many runs, huge jumps and snowboarding terrain (we are skiers though). Only downfall is that the majority of the runs are for advanced skiers and grooming is an issue with the heavy traffic this hill gets. I've skied...More

Best terrain in Midwest. Steep runs up top level out to long run outs below. Could use additional beginner terrain but that should be coming as resort adds additional runs in the West over the next few years. Improved snow making capacity has resulted in...More
