A few words on the Snow at Granite Peak

Granite Peak has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 75 inches snowfall, due to its central Wisconsin location.

Accumulation and Preservation

Granite Peak's cold climate facilitates early season snowmaking. Rain is about as frequent as in the Northeast but rarely as intense. The limited acreage can be more easily restored with snowmaking and grooming than at larger and steeper areas in the Northeast. Relatively flat Midwest ski terrain will routinely melt/freeze in warm weather or March sun.
