Good to know - thanks for the info guys!

I've had some long weeks at work (already counting on the one next week), so this gives me a lot to look forward to.

I went and checked out their website and was ecstatic to see they had as much as a 98" base!

Any beginner parks with ride on features or small jumps for noobs? Both of us would like to practice on a few of those throughout the day.
Hill is 100% open and we've barely lost any of our base. Glade areas are everywhere and I even see trails that I haven't seen in the past.

For this late in the year the conditions are really good. Normally in the middle of March you might start seeing brown patches, but not this season.

Even if you don't ride park I recommend visiting "Tyro" which is our baby park. 4 low jumps, a few small rollers, 2 rainbow boxes, and 2 flat boxes. All are very low to the ground and easy to ride onto.

IMHO glades are where its at though West in the morning and East at night.

Hey Chicagoguy, I was up there last Saturday. The base was good and full coverage everywhere. The snow was good in the morning but got slushy after lunch. I think some of the bunny slope lifts weren't running but not sure. All the runs were open. Also, it was not crowded at all. Not sure if the rain here in Chicago is also affecting granite peak but hopefully Derp will check in and let you know.

Suppose to rain all morning on Saturday, you don't want to be here anyways.

Best riding this weekend will be Friday.

Typical spring conditions folks. Just be happy to still have the chance to snowboard in the middle of April

I recently came across an article about how GPs long time park manager will not be coming back next season. Anyone have the inside scoop on who will be taking over and what the impact this might have?
