Geological History of Rib Mountain, Wisconsin
Keith Montgomery Ph.D.
Department of Geography-Geology
University of Wisconsin - Marathon County
"Rib Mountain is composed of a single
large block of the rock quartzite. Together with Mosinee Hill and
Hardwood Hill, it forms a crescent shape that encompasses Nine Mile
Swamp. Erosion in the past 300 million years has removed the sedimentary
rocks from this part of the state. Rib Mountain survives this erosion
and stands tall on account of the legendary toughness of its quartzite!"
Peak Ski Area
Please note that there is no granite to be found on or in Rib Mountain.
The name was chosen by the ski hill owners to honor the granite
found throughout Marathon County, and most likely because 'Quartzite
Peak Ski Area' wouldn't have sounded the same.
