Granite Peak Snow Report
We received 6 inches of new snow on Wednesday! No "polar vortex" this year to spoil the winter fun--ideal termperatures for skiing and boarding are forecast for rest of winter!
We have a deep 36-52" base with all 7 chairlifts open (including 3 high speed lifts!) and 100% of our Primary Run terrain now open
With 202 acres of diverse ski terrain, 3 High Speed Chairlifts spanning across the mountain, and a deep base of snow courtesy of our best-in-region snowmaking, and , Granite Peak always has the most skiing and the best conditions in WI or the UP!!!
Granite Peak has the most High Speed Lift-serviced skiing in the Midwest, and the ONLY high speed lifts in northern WI or the UP. A 10 minute ride on a standard lift takes only 3.5 minutes on a high speed lift. This means no lift lines and 3 times more skiing than at your standard WI or UP resort!!!
Celebrate Winter in Wausau with friends and family this Season!

Notes on Surface Conditions
Depending on recent weather we list the groomed runs as follows:
- Power-tilled: the general groomed surface we often refer to as corduroy.
- Packed Powder: groomed surface when 4 or more inches of snow has fallen during the last few days.
- Powder: 4 or more inches of new snow since surface was last groomed.
- Spring Conditions: occurs during warm days and cool nights of spring. Groomed nightly, usually firm in early morning, breaking a soft corn-snow surface mid-day and often soft in afternoon.
