Derp It's President's Day weekend at GP. Even with cold af temps we are expecting record numbers for this season.

If you ride park expect long lift lines as Comet and Blitzen get the bulk of our crowds and they are your only access to them.

If you just want to ride I highly suggest going to Dasher and Cupid during the day and Cupid at night. Lines will be the shortest there.

Going to be crazy here Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. All the hotels in Wausau are 100% booked and so is ski school lessons. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Conditions are good and we just stopped making snow last night, but this might not be the ideal weekend.

No idea, I live in Milwaukee and just get up there every other weekend or so. I'd guess pretty icy with how cold its been. I'll be up there tomorrow night through the weekend.

I try and tell people who are upset to voice their concerns. Social media, emails, calls, whatever. Just be constructive.

I'm just as disappointed as everyone else. Haven't even been motivated enough this season to even go out once.

As far as marketing goes, they do what they gotta do. I don't pay any attention to that.
Yeah I get the game plan, but as a pass holder for the past 5 years I feel like I have a right to complain if I disagree with it. And I'm not just doing that anonymously on here, I've sent emails to the office and/or Vicki directly the past two years. I also get that it's a business and the money I spend on my pass and bar tab for an entire season is probably pretty close to what the average family from Chicago spends in a weekend. It is what it is, my time on this forum is anything but constructive.

The most frustrating part is that I know they have the resources available to build excellent parks and have failed to live up to their potential for one reason or another for several seasons now. The Tyro park does look pretty badass though based on what I can see on FB, pumped to get up there on Friday and check it out. The downside is it sounds like Aspen will be closed this weekend and the lift by Tyro is the slowest on the hill, so it's probably going to be a shitshow over there if that's the only park that's open.

Anyway sorry for the rant, it's cool to get an employees perspective, appreciate the updates Derp.

Derp are you the white guy with brown hair and mustache? Im there all the time, brown jacket/black pants, white sticker'd helmet, usually on thurs and friday, say hi if you see me!
