The Wisconsin Resort That’s Perfect For Every Level of Skier

Wisconsin isn’t exactly known for mountainous geography – in fact, our highest point is called Timm’s Hill. But up north near Wausau, Granite Peak at Rib Mountain State Park provides skiing with one of the tallest spots in the midwest. This awesome ski resort is welcoming to skiers and snowboarders and its 75 runs are split evenly by difficulty level, with one-third each dedicated to beginner, more difficult and most difficult runs.

With tons of variety, long runs, many lifts and the kind of reliable snow you’d only expect to find out west, Granite Peak is a stellar skiing and snowboarding spot that appeals to folks of all ages and abilities. Add in a variety of ticketing deals, night skiing and a women’s snowsports program as well as a terrain park, concert series and rentals and you’ve got the perfect spot in north central Wisconsin.
