WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Granite Peak will offer fall color chairlift rides beginning Sept. 11.

The ride takes 15 minutes round trip. Rides are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until Oct. 25. However, due to rain there will be no rides Sept. 12. It will open Friday from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. and then again on Sunday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The cost is $15 for adults, $10 for children, $12 for seniors and 3-5 years is free. The family of four-pack is $40.

Riders and workers are excited for the fall color season to be underway.

“It’s a beautiful minute ride, just 15 minutes up nice and easy. Folks can sit back and enjoy it, what I think folks need at this time,” Granite Peak General Manager and Marketing Director Greg Fisher said.

“I saw it on Facebook and I thought that it would be a cool adventure since the quarantine and stuff we’ve been stuck in out house. I mean, who doesn’t love the outdoors,” Auburndale resident Aaliyah Borchert added.

Granite Peak is located at 227200 Snowbird Ave. in Wausau.

Mother Nature certainly is giving us a little preview of the winter. Temps here dipped to just above freezing this...
