A great deal if you are local and get a season pass, but very pricey as compared to large ski resorts. Many fun runs to accommodate the whole family, the lines are never too long, and the staff are outstanding.

3 day family ski trip enjoyed by all but don't recommend the large cafeteria style restaurant. Greasy spoon. Go to the old stone building with large fireplaces an bar. Much better food and atmosphere. They also had live music.

We are so lucky to have such a beautiful place to ski in Wausau, WI. They take great care of the hills and make snow throughout the season. We are still skiing in late March most years.

You look out your window and are discouraged from skiing. Don't be if you have access to Granite Peak. They are committed to making snow when possible and their snow lasts longer than your yard snow. Spring skiing in February and March in Wisconsin! You'll...More

Lunch consisted of Brats on pretzel roll, fried cheese curds and a cheeseburger. A little over priced, but good. A beer draft of new glarus was 7.00. Expensive.
