I go to Granite Peak for 2 days with the boys every year. It's our annual ski trip with a small crew from high school. Yup, now we're in our mid 40s and we've all skied the west plenty of times, but keep going back to GP year after year because it's close, mega cheap...... and the runs are just... More

Granite Peak is a good size ski resort. The comet speed lift is stellar. I like how they have added a larger beginners terrain park over by the kiddie hill as well. It's fun to dink around in, but also gives the inexperienced park rats a place they can play out of the way of others. The one thing lacking... More

2 high speed lifts and adding a 3rd this summer! You cant beat this hill for the location. If you do not have a season pass it is a little expensive and the people running the lift could be a little more friendly. Out in CO lifties ask you how your doing, have a great run or at least say... More

The beginner moguls and beginner glades have taught my kids how to ski that type of terrain and are now enjoying more challenging mogul fields and glades. And I skied their chutes twice this trip which was a great intro to chutes for me and I felt very proud of myself!

The skiing was nice. The facilities were well kept and the staff was great evening taking the time to make sure that the package we purchased online was the best deal. The kids had a lesson from a wonderful ski school staff and they learned enough to ski with the parents for the rest of the trip.

We have skied no less than a dozen ski hills in the upper Midwest in the past couple years. This ranks #2. Great runs, great lifts, friendly staff, nice chalets (two), decent prices. By the way, #1 was Lutsen.
