“Love Granite Peak”
Review of Granite Peak

Granite Peak
Ranked #2 of 19 things to do in Wausau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2015

I get to GP 3+ times a year and the conditions are always good. The addition of mounds to make rollers on the east and west side makes the flats much more exciting. The food is very expensive so bring lunch. Also, the tickets are very expensive, but there are discounts in the evening. I would go more if not for the cost. If you can get past that, this place ranks in my top three for snow, terrain variety, atmosphere, and location.

Lots of fun memories, well worth saving for! Beautiful hills, nice grooming. Somebody is always hauled out by ambulance though. Nice for beginners, and experts..lots of trail choices. For me as an intermediate skiier, there were basically only a few runs at my ability. Still fun

Significant other is an avid skier and was impressed with variety of runs offered. The high speed lifts are awesome! This ski area offers solid surface parking, a great beginner bunny area, that a 3 year loved, (with fun obstacles to ski through) and challenging black diamonds and enjoyable blue and green areas. Something for everyone! A bonus of local Wisconsin craft beer and live music. The staff was friendly and the locals we were welcoming. We will be back!!

We came Sunday in hopes to rent the equipment and get ready for skiing next day. But we came at 4:30 and were told that the ski rental shop closes at 4 pm. So we went back to the hotel and came back next morning at 9 am, got skis and went to the ski lift just to find out that ski lifts open at 10. If you look at their web site working hours it is very easy to miss that because it is just one line lost among many lines stating that lifts open at 9 am. And if you look at the spring season there are no hours at all. Otherwise the place is decent.
