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.

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

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
