SKI EQUIPMENT

Granite Peak allows the use of skis, snowboards, and adaptive devices or other "manually-powered mobility aids" designed for use on the ski slopes. Adaptive devices are any specialized equipment that was designed and manufactured primarily for use by individuals who have disabilities, including; mono skis, bi skis, ski outriggers, and sit-skis.  Snow bikes are permitted with permission from Management and checking of leashed device.

Snow skateboards, home-made equipment and power-driven mobility devices are prohibited at Granite Peak.

OPERATIONS

Granite Peak Ski Area reserves the right to operate lifts and slopes according to skier/rider traffic and weather conditions. Best efforts are made to have Snow and Grooming reports accurate and up-to-date, however, closures of lifts and runs may occur prior to an online update. No refunds or rainchecks will be issued as a result.

All guests are required to have skis, snowboard and alpine devices attached to ride all lifts and conveyor belts.  Only direct permission from the General Manager or area management will allow guests without skis or snowboards to ride chairlifts or conveyors without ski / snowboard equipment during winter operating hours.
