Adventures on the snow are always great for the whole family - it keeps you active and it's just fun to spend time together on the snow!
Granite Gorge Ski Area is a place where the whole family can spend their family day out! There is skiing and snowboarding for all who want to try it, and it doesn't matter what age or experience level you are!
There are lessons for those aged 4 and up, so you really can start at any ages! The lessons are perfect if you have never tried skiing before, or if you just want to improve your techniques.
Then, once you've mastered those skills (and we know you have some GREAT skills!) you can hit the slopes and have a go at the various runs that Granite Gorge Ski Area have.
There are 6 green runs for those just starting out, 5 blue runs for the intermediate, and the rest are the black runs and well, good luck!
It's not just skiing and snowboarding at Granite Gorge Ski Area either. There is alpine and cross country skiing, as well as those always fun snow tubes available for kids over 5 years (and over 42"). But don't worry little ones aged 5 to 9 - there are mini tubes for you!
If you are still not very confident, there is a beginner friendly terrain training park which is perfect for gaining skills and confidence (and balance, as the case may be!)
In summer, the area transforms into another kind of outdoor adventure, with hiking and biking trails.
Get those skis ready (or get ready to hire them!) because the mountain is waiting for you!
