Granite Peak, Black Jack or Big Powder Horn
Background: I might have some extra money to throw at a longer snowboarding weekend trip for me and my 2 sons (17 & 16) this season, possibly Wed- Sun. Travel Wed, ride Thur - Sat and depending on the resort (travel distance) riding Sunday or need to travel home that day.
The last few years we have taken a long weekend and went to Granite Peak, 3 hr drive. I'm considering the UP of Michigan, about 6 hr drive.
GP is closer and we can stay longer and ride more days. Plus I get to ride with my buddy * Derrrrrrpppp * from the forum that lives there.
For those of you that have been to all 3 or any of these resorts can you share your thougths on them?
How does the riding experience of Granite Peak, Black Jack & Big Powder Horn compare to each other.
Worth the drive, accommodations (I'd love to stay on the hill and ride out my door to the hill) GP is a 5 minute drive from the hotel
I was to the UP in my late teens with buddies but it was at one of the smaller resorts up there and we didn't stay on sight, Ski Brule was the resort.
Do I try to go to a different resort, little farther away for a more mountain feel? Again there is differing opinion as GP has more vert than both those hills.
Well share any thoughts or experiences you had at any of these resorts. Really hoping for input from riders that have experienced all 3 would be best.
