Granite Peak comes about as close to a full fledged resort (ie. Keystone, Breckenridge, Alta, etc.) as possible while doing so with a fourth or fifth of the vertical. The runs are impressively long, and also consistently steep (unlike Devils Head). The terrain park has challenging aspects, yet has an overwhelmingly large selection suitable for virtually anyone willing and able to try. The best part about this resort is that it offers the BIGGEST variety in terrain of any Midwest resort. If you're questioning whether to make the trip to visit Granite Peak, it comes highly suggested. Don't miss out.
