Hey, hope it isn't too late, but I never realized how big granite was now, having not been there in almost ten years. My guess is Whitecap is comparable in size, but the terrain is more interesting at Whitecap. Plus, it doesn't require artificial snow so you can tear up the trees without worrying about destroying your board. Obviously, we're not talking about the Vail glades here, but if you like a couple hundred feet of fresh turns in the otherwise non-existent, knee-deep Midwest powder, Whitecap is a good spot for you.
Can you go into the trees at Granite now?
I saw your other posts on the subject and sounds like it might be decent if they had any snow.
