I skied Granite Peak between Christmas and New Years 2007. Although the there were lift lines, they were tolderable and the comet express was excellent. I am pretty savy on Midwet Ski Resorts, what they have to offer and statistics. Think about how many Midwest Ski areas have an express lift? I can think of two others. The staff is friendly and actually much older than you would expect. Also facilities are new and fresh looking. The hill with its 650'+ verticle is nice and the runs are longer than most in the midwest. True the bottom is a little "flat" but this is simply a geographical feature of all hills, including mountains in skiing heaven, Colorado. GP offers a decent sized skiing area 286 acres, great verticle, and excellent variety. Spots can get pretty icy - welcome to the Midwest. Man made snow, temperatures, and snow borders cause this. GP is a great Midwest skiing haven during the week for sure. Easily top ten in the Midwest. And the price may may your heart skip 1/2 a beat, but it shouldn't. Compare what you get and the prices to other ski areas, and you'll come out ahead by skiing the new and much imroved Granite Peak.
