Beginning this season, Wisconsin's Granite Peak Ski Area will be restricting access to three of its runs to skiers only. The resort, which boasts five terrain parks that president and owner Charles Skinner says are used almost exclusively by snowboarders, has been hearing from a "growing chorus of skiers requesting a few 'skier only' runs," says Skinner. "Skiers have told us that the rhythm, turn radius, and visual orientation is different for skiers and snowboarders, and that they would enjoy a few runs dedicated just to skiers. We are now responding to this request by the dedication of three runs for this purpose."
