More Time on the Slopes, Less Waiting in Line with NEW LIFTS

Granite Peak has the most modern and convenient lift system in the Midwest with five chairlifts, which include THREE HIGH SPEED Lifts, that make 72 of our 75 runs serviced by high speed lifts. We also offer two conveyor lifts on our beginner terrain. Our lifts include names of Santa’s reliable and trustworthy team of reindeer:

  • Cupid Express – the newest high-speed quad lift replaced our eastern chairlift making nearly all of our runs now serviced by high-speed lifts.
  • Comet Express - a high speed six-seater located right in the center of the mountain.
  • Dasher Express – a high-speed quad lift servicing western runs.
  • Blitzen – a triple chairlift in the center of the mountain for midpoint and top unloading.
  • Beginner area - a dedicated beginner’s chairlift (Santa) and two Wonder Carpet lifts (Frosty and Blizzard), which utilizes a specialized conveyer belt tailored to meet the unique needs of new skiers and snowboarders.
