The Mountain

WAUSAU'S ORIGINAL SKI AREA - BETTER THAN EVER

This ancient mountain became a ski area more than 70 years ago, when Wausau residents cleared six runs by hand, installed the country's longest ski lift, and built the stone chalet from granite quarried nearby. We've taken the vision of the original founders to new heights every year for the past 14 years, and we are proud to continue to build upon the tradition of being Wisconsin's premier ski area.
