Grand Geneva Resort is a popular vacation destination found in southeastern Wisconsin. The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva is the name of the ski area that can be found at the resort, and it's where all the winter fun is had. Since the Grand Geneva Ski Resort only has fourteen acres of skiing terrain, it is a fairly relaxed place to make some turns. Most of the eighteen slopes are gentle and cater to intermediate and beginning-level skiers and snowboarders. If you're up for a different experience, you can check out the terrain park, and it's also possible to go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing weather permitting.
As is true at the other top Wisconsin ski areas, the Grand Geneva Resort has the ability to cover its slopes with manmade snow as needed. It can also illuminate the majority of its terrain at night, so you don't have to go home when the sun starts to set. You also don't have to bring any skiing or snowboarding equipment to Grand Geneva if you want to hit the slopes, as it is possible to rent it at the rental shop. For the inexperienced, skiing and snowboarding lessons can be arranged, and should you need to purchase any accessories, such as goggles or gloves, you can do so at the Snow Sport Shop. The Grand Geneva Ski Resort operating hours are noon to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every other day.
A handful of lifts at the Grand Geneva Ski Resort take skiers and snowboarders up the hill, and if you head all the way to the top, a vertical drop of 210 feet awaits. It's not exactly a big vertical drop, but you can get your speed up and make a bunch of turns nonetheless. Some good views of the surrounding area can be enjoyed from the upper reaches, and down at the bottom, a bar and grill presents visitors with an ideal place to kick back for a while. There's enough to keep you busy on a visit to the Grand Geneva Ski Area, and if you're interested in staying close to the slopes, excellent lodging options can be found nearby.
Grand Geneva Resort packages are available for those who are planning either a winter or summer visit. You might have some luck finding some for the fall or spring seasons as well, as this is very much a year round destination. During the warmer months, golf takes center stage. A few of the upscale resorts in the area offer some great skiing and golfing packages, and should you be interested, you can also book spa packages.
The Grand Geneva Resort packages, such as the ones that are offered by the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa and the Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark, are especially popular with Milwaukee and Chicago area residents who need a break from city life. Milwaukee is just an hour's drive away, while it only takes about 90 minutes to make the drive up from Chicago. Even closer is the Alpine Valley Ski Resort, which is another popular place to make some turns in southeastern Wisconsin.
