Not Yet

My daughter and I are planning on heading to Granite Peak for opening day tomorrow morning. It looks like Devils Head is trying to open next Friday at 2:00. I think Cascade is trying to open next Saturday as well.

I hope Alpine opens this weekend, my daughter wants to go to her cousins birthday party on Saturday instead of skiing.

She said she would go skiing on Sunday, If I'm lucky they'll open on Saturday and I'll get two days of skiing in!

Devilshead = longer runs and slow lifts
Cascade= shorter runs and a detachable quad
Granite Peak= lots of marketing, long run out, ok lifts

All three are good but not great

If you're closer to either Devilshead and Cascade as opposed to Granite Peak go to Devilshead or Cascade. If you're closer to Granite Peak go to Granite Peak. If all three are a long drive go a little further to the U.P., Indianhead, Powderhorn or even Bohemia. More terrain and more vertical by midwest standards.

Thanks...i hate old slow lifts so devils head is out of the question..I don't mind if the runs are shorter..as long as the lift gets you up fast enough...its not that bad

Im going to GP this weekend so I will let you guys know how it is
