I guess depends on if you're splitting gas price costs?

Alright here we go...

Open 9-9 on Saturday, but forecast is calling for cold ass temps.
Open 9-4 on Sunday with much more seasonable temperatures.

Saturday 4pm-CL is $18+tax for a lift ticket. Pretty good deal.
Sunday from 9-4 is $54+tax for a lift ticket. I don't make the prices!

We got a good inch+ of snow last night and another couple on the way tonight.

We were able to make snow on Monday night and plan on making snow every chance we get. If you ride on Saturday don't be surprised to see the guns blowing all over. Good chance of us making a good amount tonight, Friday, and Saturday.

I can't give you a exact number of runs we have open as it just depends on the weather. You can check here, but it is not always 100% up to date.

Granite Peak Lift Status

Definitely more than last weekend and I'm pretty sure we will have a few jumps and rails set up for the park people. If you want you can PM me and I'll give you my cell#. If you hit me up on Saturday night (taking for granted you want to ride on Sunday) I can give you a lift status directly from the hill as I work 3:30-CL there on Saturday night.

I will hopefully be riding all day on Sunday.

thanx so much for the info.....
man,...that $54 price tag for pre season is brutal.....
I'd love to go, but without the whole hill open, it's starting to make sense to wait and get more bang for my buck when everything is open.

I thought their pre season prices were quite a bit lower,...but no such luck.
I need to get out there on one of their mid week specials....
nice to know you work/ride there though!!

Staff here have been killing it. I can't remember ever seeing this much snow on the mountain for Thanksgiving. Especially considering we've only seen maybe 3 inches of snow this season so far.

17 runs open (basically the entire middle of the mountain) and plenty of features for the park rats.

New this year they also have their "4 for 40" deal. Bring 3 of your friends and ride on Friday night from 4pm-9pm for only $10+tax per person.

Mon, Wed, and Saturday nights from 4-9pm are $18+tax per person.
Tuesday and Thursday are 2 for the price of 1.

Thanks for the update Derp. Sounds like I'll be making it up on those discount days/nights

Will be up in Wausau this weekend and may get a chance to ride at Granite Peak on Saturday. I know it's going to be cold - does anyone have an update on the current conditions?
