With over 450 resorts across the country, the ski industry in the United States functions as an interconnected ecosystem. From large, multi-mountain resorts to tiny, one-chairlift hills, every type of ski area plays an important part in helping the industry thrive. Most ski hills fit into three categories: local, regional destination, and national destination. As a regional destination resort, Granite Peak offers the best of both worlds.
Whether you’re looking for a way to unwind after work or booking your next family getaway, regional destination resorts are the perfect option. Because they offer more terrain than smaller local and metro-area ski hills, they are often less crowded and have a wide variety of runs for all types of skiers to explore and enjoy. Located within driving distance of several major metropolitan areas, Granite Peak is the ideal snow-vacation, especially for families. Airline tickets to national destination resorts for a family of four can easily cost over a thousand dollars, and other travel expenses can quickly rack up. Between getting to the airport, waiting in security, and total flight time, trips to national destination resorts can require an entire day of travel each way. Preset flight times and unexpected delays also mean less flexibility and convenience for travelers.
While this might work for longer vacations, this can often mean that weekend trips to national destination resorts simply aren’t an option for many skiers and snowboarders across the country. Regional resorts offer the full adventure and experience without all the airport hassle—and with a much lower price tag. Families can pack up and pile into the car for a spur of the moment weekend getaway on a moment’s notice. And with all kinds of terrain and events, we have something for every member of the family to enjoy at Granite Peak.
