Skiing at Granite Peak was great for me and my 11 year old son. This is the second year in a row that we have visited Granite Peak. We loved both times. Thanks you.

Fantastic mountain for the whole family. Excellent runs for all types of skiers, from the 3yr olds to the pros, it's got everything. Three high speed lifts, two magic carpets, and many others. Live music on the weekends and sleigh rides during family fests.

Friends and I hike Rib Mt. year round. It is easy hiking, quiet, and scenic.There is a lot of free parking on both sides of the hill, parking passes to park at the top. Shopping & food near by.

What a wonderful destination we have right here in Wausau. The slopes at GP are wonderful for all ages, but especially great for those with children. Lift service has been good this year and with their early season snow-making operations, the conditions out there right...More

Overall I liked the area. The pros are the base area/lodge, overall size of the area, and a lprofessionally run organization; Granite Peak seemed more like a genuine midwest destination area. The negatives (to me) were the weekend crowds, and lack of much variation in...More

Definitely the best in the Midwest! Has the most terrain and HIGH SPEED LIFTS! Can be a little pricey but I'll take it because the longest I had to wait in line was 2 minutes. No where else will you get that many laps. Everyone...More

I skied here for two days during the week with friends and had a great time. This is one of the larger ski areas in the Midwest alongside Afton Alps, but smaller than Lutsen. We never had to wait behind more than a few people...More

Spring Skiing is not too bad depending if temperatures hold enough so snow doesn't melt. Trust me its no fun at all ridding on a Slurpee. It make for a very wet and unpleasant experience. But if they blow fresh snow you... More
