Significant other is an avid skier and was impressed with variety of runs offered. The high speed lifts are awesome! This ski area offers solid surface parking, a great beginner bunny area, that a 3 year loved, (with fun obstacles to ski through) and challenging black diamonds and enjoyable blue and green areas. Something for everyone! A bonus of local... More

We came Sunday in hopes to rent the equipment and get ready for skiing next day. But we came at 4:30 and were told that the ski rental shop closes at 4 pm. So we went back to the hotel and came back next morning at 9 am, got skis and went to the ski lift just to find out... More

We have been coming here for ten years and it never disappoints. Great skiing for where it is and the runs really do a good job of keeping you excited and interested. Of course it would be great if this was a 4000 plus foot mountain but for what it is, it really is a great time. Our friends brought... More

I did not want to go all the way out to Colorado and I did some searching for a midwest ski areas. This came up to the top, so I thought I would give it a try. We stayed at a down town hotel, but I was still only about 5 minutes away. Very convenient. The time I was there,... More

While there are a lot of ski runs and terrain parks for every ability, this place can get crowded with people from Chicago on the weekends and holidays.

Despite bitterly cold weather with a heavy wind and a busy travel weekend the hill did a good job of accommodating skiers. My friend and I are intermediate skiers and found the hill not so accommodating for us. There are not many blue runs and some of those can only be accessed via black runs and for some reason one...

Granite Peak has many blue and black runs making it the perfect drive to destination. Skiing is great! Food service in the chalet has many issues with being over priced for poor quality food (hair in soup). Staff was not trained in how to weigh and price salad bar. Young staff without hair nets, gloves or supervision. Insufficient ski racks... More

If you are new to skiing and want to have a nice family weekend on the slopes without paying airfare, go to Granite Peak. They take care of their slopes, and offer some challenges for the more experienced skier. My kids love it there and we go every year!

We spent a weekend skiing and snowboarding here recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a 4-4 ½ hour drive from the north and west suburbs of Chicago, so a great weekend getaway. It’s a bit farther then Cascade and Devils Head but well worth the extra time. The parking lot is convenient with no spots too far away from the... More
