RIB MOUNTAIN – You can experience the colors of autumn and views of Rib Mountain State Park and Wausau while riding a chairlift at Granite Peak Ski Area this fall.  

Start your ride at the base of the mountain before getting off at the top to enjoy the scenery and hike. Or stay on the lift at the top and enjoy a ride down without disembarking. The choice is yours.

Food and drinks will be offered at the Chalet Deck and 10th Mountain Division Hut anytime chairlift rides are running. The last ride on the chairlift occurs 15 minutes prior to dusk.
