Granite Peak, Wisconsin's largest ski area, is gearing up for its first Family Festival of the new season.  Slated to take place Jan. 9-11, 2010, the package includes two nights' lodging in the Wausau area and two days worth of lift tickets for a family of four (one free child per paid adult); two day ski and snowboard rental for the entire family; sleigh rides, a brat cookout with a bonfire and a Saturday night fireworks display. 

Typical cost for a family of four for the weekend starts from around $504, which can vary with choice of lodging packages.  Granite Peak does not have lodging, but works with a variety of motels, hotels, and B&Bs around the Wausau area that package with the ski area.  You can click on the link below for complete details on Family Festival Packages.  This is one of their most popular packages.

The Peak with several new lifts, including the Badger State's only high-speed, six-seater, an expansion to nearly 80 trails and a 700-foot vertical drop, offers some of the skiing and riding found mid-continent.  The base facilities include the historic Tenth Mountain Chalet, which is augmented by the 10,000-square-foot Sundance Chalet and a new outside patio area that features  overhead heaters, an outdoor grill, and seating for 400.
