Granite Peak Staying Open Daily Into April
Granite Peak has remained open into mid-April the last few seasons and plans on doing so again this season despite a warm Midwest winter that has shut down all other Wisconsin ski areas.
Reminiscent of western resort towns, at night Granite Peak’s lit trails shimmer above the city of Wausau. Ribbons of light cascade down Rib Mountain towards the edge of the city. The ski area illuminates the mountain rising above the town, not commonplace in the Midwest. Offering 68 trails, three high-speed lifts including a six-seater, and a 700-foot vertical drop, it’s one of the largest ski areas in the Heartland.
This weekend they will be hosting a winter carnival, but beyond that, they plan on staying open daily through the second weekend of April. The plan is for the ski area to remain open daily through Sunday, April 11, weather dependent of course. Purchase your lift tickets online for the best price.
