Why Granite Peak
Tons of Acres & the Most Vertical In the State
Home to the most vertical and the most available terrain this side of Lake Michigan. Like tree skiing? We have plenty of that with numerous hand-cleared areas and some secret stashes too. Plus you'll find four progressive terrain parks including learning parks that are located off our Santa and Blitzen lifts for beginner terrain.
Constantly Evolving, Growing & Improving
While Granite Peak is the oldest ski resort in Wisconsin our amenities, lifts and technology don't show it. We have constantly been improving our infastructure, technology, and offerings to cater to the changing times and desires of guests! Our resort has been kicking around since 1937! We are proud to say we are one of the oldest ski resorts in the country. Up there with the likes of Stowe in Vermont, Sun Valley in Idaho, and Cranmore Mountain in New Hampshire that were skiing down the slopes prior to 1940! While our staff certainly has changed, our values have not. We strive to provide you with a top-quality experience while you are at our resort.
The Only True Destination in Wisconsin
We are truly blessed to have the City of Wausau to look down upon from our slopes. Just minutes away is a vibrant downtown full of over 2200 hotel rooms, eclectic dining, shopping and plenty of additional activities to keep you busy during your ski and stay vacation. While we wish you to spend as much time on the slopes we hope you'll visit some of our favorite places in the city we call home!
