The Mountain


Today, Granite Peak has the most modern and convenient lift system in the Midwest. We have installed many new lifts over the last 14 years. Granite Peak offers five chair lifts and two surface lifts, with three of the six chairlifts being high speed lifts. The Comet Express lift is a high speed six-place located right in the center of the mountain, the Dasher Express high speed quad lift services our western runs, and NEW for the 2014/2015 season we replaced our eastern chairlift with another high speed quad lift, Cupid Express! With this addition, nearly all of our runs are now serviced by high speed lifts! Our Blitzen Triple chairlift is located in the center of the mountain and offers midpoint and top unloading.

Our beginner area consists of a dedicated beginner’s chairlift and two Wonder Carpet lifts, a specialized conveyer belt tailored to meet the unique needs of learning skiers and snowboarders. The Wonder Carpet lift is especially great for those just learning to ski or snowboard!
