Two upper Great Lakes ski resorts plan on stretching the season out a little longer, an encore from last season. It’s some of the best skiing and riding of the season; warming days, long runs and corn snow.
Wisconsin’s Granite Peak plans on being open daily through this weekend and weekends for the rest of this month and into early May if the snow holds up. Special events include Sunday Family Days where $204 gets a family of four both lift tickets and rentals for all family members, Friday night special, $40 for four lift tickets, and Saturday night $19 lift tickets, good from 4-9 p.m. This time of year that includes a lot of daylight hours. Granite Peak is offering a three day lift and lodging package for the price of two days.
Lutsen Mountains, Minnesota’s Arrowhead, will remain open daily through April 12 and plans on extending the season on Eagle Mountain on weekends into May if the snow holds out. According to Lutsen's Jim Vick, conditions are prime spring skiing and riding. Amazing corn snow in the morning and soft moguls in the afternoon, what more do you need?
Mountain Meltdown takes place April 6-12 with lift and lodging packages at half-price and daily après ski entertainment. This weekend the Meltdown bash takes place with 10 bands live on an outdoor stage. It’s one of the best season ending parties in the Heartland.
