To ski or not to ski? Lake Geneva’s Grand Geneva Resort & Spa offers guests the best of both worlds. Traveling with a group mixed of skiers and non-skiers? Here’s what guests can look forward to this winter season.
The ski and snow sport season at The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva officially opens on December 10, 2022 (weather permitting). Coined as one of the best family-friendly destinations for skiers of all skill levels, The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva offers 21 downhill runs, a six-acre terrain park with a dedicated lift, 211’ vertical that offers majestic views of southeastern Wisconsin, plus trails and experiences for beginners and all the rentals necessary for a day on the snow.
The 1,300-acre resort also offers a terrain park, trolley transportation to The Mountain Top from resort locations, ski and snowboarding lessons, three chairlifts, two carpet lifts, group rates, food and drinks, and there’s even night skiing. The Mountain Top also features excellent children programs and lessons for all ages and skillsets led by certified instructors. Beyond skiing and snowboarding, the resort also offers miles of cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails and rentals, as well as sledding and ice-skating, weather permitting.
While guests are encouraged to purchase season passes in advance, The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa sells single day skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and rental tickets online. All tickets must be purchased in advance.
For those who want more than just a day-trip, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa and its on-site, all-suite sister property, Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark currently offers special winter season and ski packages and deals including a New Year’s Eve Hills and Thrills two-night package.
There are only around 15 million skiers in the United States – that’s just about 5 percent of the population. For those who prefer apres-ski over actually hitting the slopes, the AAA four-diamond Grand Geneva Resort & Spa offers plenty of winter wonder and programming for all.
Those who don’t ski but still want to curl up by a fire, experience the wintry outdoors, or enjoy a more relaxing winter vacation can take advantage of Grand Geneva’s exceptional WELL Spa + Salon, award-winning dining, fireside cocktails, plus other activities and adventures including indoor pools, rock climbing, a state-of-the-art fitness center offering classes, and much more. There’s even an outdoor patio offering views of the Mountain Top for those who prefer to sit back and watch with a warm beverage in hand.
And there’s no better way to end the day all together than in one of Grand Geneva’s private igloos to enjoy warm drinks, small bites, and festive signature cocktails like a Sugar Cookie Gin Fizz or Pecan Old Fashioned. Guests of all ages may enjoy a sweet treat like the resort’s popular Fanciful S’mores Board which includes a personal solo stove for fireside roasting and all the fixins’ for the ultimate s’mores creation — jumbo marshmallows, graham crackers, Godiva chocolate, peanut butter mousse, Nutella, and much more – a fun winter escape for all.
