How Does Granite Peak Compare?

Of course you can afford a winter vacation - or two!

If the thought of taking a winter vacation has you worried about the family budget, disappointing the kids, or spending two days in airports just getting somewhere…RELAX. We have your family vacation for thousands of dollars less than a trip out west or to Florida.

It’s such a great value, you could several times and still spend far less than you would on a trip to the Rocky Mountains or Disneyworld. Best of all, you don’t have to spend two days of your vacation in airports or get charged exorbitant fees for wanting to bring your skis or a couple of bags. You just load up the car, with everything you care to bring, and head to Granite Peak.

We have everything your family wants from a great ski vacation: 74 runs, terrain parks, complete snowmaking and expert grooming, night skiing and every amenity you can imagine – from great restaurants to night life to theater to indoor pools and spas. We’ll take good care of you, and we’ll start by saving you two days of travel and thousands of dollars in vacation costs.
