Hey any of you people went to Granite Peak, WI? Is it worth the 4 hour drive?

it is when its not icy... otherwise its alright. The park is pretty nice but the little kids ruin the jumps in a day or so. Mt Bohemia has season passes on sale today for $100... its a steal of a deal... only problem is its about 5 hours from GB.

I went there 3 years ago and had a good time. It's a little better than Devils Head imo. They are the only two places in WI I have gone.

Heading there in January. Well we'll see how it is compared to Alpine valley and Wilmont.

They do a good job of grooming and have a nice high speed quad, they advertise 77 runs but in actuality only have 7. A third of the hill is a headwall and the remaining 2/3 is flat as a pancake. It might be fun for a day (quite expensive), but any more than a day you have to spend the overage in the bar. A better hill is marquette mountain but that would add another 2.5hr to the drive, however the ticket price is half what the peak scalps.
