Rib Mountain (WAOW) — Granite Peak hosts a New Year celebration annually, but this year it’s going all out.
The celebration will be free of charge and is bringing in Chicago-based Hello Weekend.
“This year we’re doing a whole 360-flip, where we’re doing the balloon drop, we’re staying through midnight. Hopefully do the 3, 2, 1 balloons, with neon. A big celebration into 2019, we’ve never done that before. So that is all new this year”, said Director of Marketing Lisa Zilinsky.
Granite Peak’s New Year celebration begins at 8 PM and goes until 12:30 AM New Year’s Day. Its an all ages celebration and Granite Peak hopes to attract non-skiers.
“We’re community-driven, we love to be involved. A lot of people don’t know when we have bands here that aren’t just dedicated for skiers. We want people that don’t have ski passes to come and enjoy the chalets too. It’s open to the public”, said Zilinsky.
Hello Weekend will be performing inside the Sundance Chalet at 8PM, and the slopes will remain open until 9PM.
