We're excited to have you at Granite Peak!

Our Arrival Guide helps you to prepare for your trip to Granite Peak. Please read the information below and you'll be ready to have a Legendary trip.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE:

    1. Sign Your Waivers
      By signing your waivers you'll move through our lines faster.
    2. Have Your Itinerary Number
      Print out or write down your itinerary number from your confirmation email.
    3. Check the Snow Report
      The snow report will give you conditions and weather updates daily. We also post to social media every morning!
    4. Over-pack. Wool over cotton clothes.
      Always have a few extra items. You'll want goggles and/or sunglasses.  Cotton is not a good choice for clothing; choose wool, cold gear or other clothing with moisture-wicking materials.

Here is a video on how to protect yourself if the temperatures are really chilly:

UPON ARRIVAL

  1. Get dressed at your vehicle & leave bags there.
    To reduce clutter in our chalets, we do not allow bags to be brought in or left in our buildings unless in a locker.  GoPod Lockers are available in our rental building and in the lower Historic Chalet.
  2. Head to the Ticket Windows. 
    Our ticket windows are located to the left of our main entrance (the one with the welcome sign in the middle of our parking lot). Your itinerary number is what we will need to bring up your tickets, rentals, etc.
  3. Rentals (if purchased)
    If you have equipment rentals, head there. Lockers are available or bring your shoes back to your car at this time.
  4. Lessons (if purchased)
    If you booked Alpine Learning Center lessons, arrive 20 minutes prior as the lesson times start upon appointment time. Have lift tickets and rentals with you, ready to ride. If you're going to be late, please call ahead or check in to let us know. The ALC Desk is located by our ticket windows.
  5. Forgot something? Don't panic.  
    Our retail store is open and located right next to rentals. Our shop has commonly forgotten items such as goggles, sunglasses, hats, and more. Plus, plenty of Granite Peak items from stickers to sweaters, to commemorate your visit!
  6. Hit the Slopes! From our base area, you'll see a majority of our lifts. Blitzen (exit at mid-station) & Santa offer access to our Easier (Green Circle) terrain. Comet 6-Pack is our flagship lift and is located on the opposite side of the Sundance Chalet. Don't forget your trail map!

Tips

  1. If possible, eat early or late. 
    Skip the lunch rush and try to eat before 11am or after 2pm. Sundance Cafe is open daily and the Historic Bar & Grill is open Friday - Sundays & Holidays.
  2. Try out all lifts (if you are experienced)
    Granite Peak is steep from the summit and then mellows out down low. If you are capable, use our outlying lifts like Dasher and Cupid for less lines on busy weekends and holidays. Just know that Cupid & Blitzen (past the mid-station) only offer Expert Terrain from the top! Check out our trail map for more information.
  3. Explore Wausau
    When you are done skiing and riding for the day, we encourage you to check out some of the great restaurants and shopping that Wausau & the surrounding area offers!

Directions

227200 Snowbird Ave, Wausau, Wisconsin 54401.

Exit 190 off Interstate 39 - NN West

 

We hope the information in this Arrival Guide has helped you in your plans.  We can't wait to see you!
