Been going to GP for the past 4 years, one of the best in midwest. Nice and big with a good variety of terrain. Park riders will have a blast, they have 5 of them. The tree glades are blast to ride, not too many oppurtunities to ride trees in the midwest. The hill gets a little slow towards the bottom as it goes kind of flat but not too bad. Lift lines are never bad, even on weekends. My only complaints as that they do not have onsite lodging other than the Rib Mountain Inn and that place is pricey and small, they never have any rooms available. My other complaint is $$$$. Lift tickets are very expensive at $58 to $64 then they tack on a "facility improvement fee" of 3% which is ridiculous. Oh and you better pack a lunch because the cafeteria food is not cheap either.
