Big Tupper Mountain Re-Opening Again for the 2013 Winter!


Big Tupper Mountain Re-Opening Again for the 2013 Winter!

There's good news coming out of the Adirondack Mountains in New York these days. After unfortunately being forced to take a year off last Winter, it's been announced that Big Tupper will re-open this winter for the 2013-2014 season! This comes as big news for everyone in the Adirondack region who either remembers skiing Big Tupper as a kid, or was lucky enough to ski there between 2009-2012 when the mountain re-opened.

Largely due to volunteer efforts, Big Tupper Mountain will be re-opening (again) this winter with a focus on a, "no-frills," experience that aims to put the focus back on the recreational aspect of skiing. Without the budget for any artificial snow-making capabilities, Big Tupper will rely on old-fashioned snow from Mother Nature to sell $25.00 day tickets to skiers. While they are working on providing books of 5 or 10 day passes, a full seasons pass offer is off the table. According to one of the many volunteers behind the effort, Russ Cronin, Jr., "because we do not have snowmaking, we thought the best financial approach for the skiing public is to wait until we have enough snow. We are hoping for a great skiing winter."

No doubt, this is exciting news for New York and Vermont skiers who have heard about Big Tupper's unique Adirondack Terrain. Steep powder lines with chairlift access and limited crowds is a rare thing, especially in New England. Throw in a $25 lift ticket, and you can be sure that Big Tupper will be the mountain of choice for Adirondack powder hounds this winter.

Any truth to what i heard,of being open weekends only?Sure would like to do a midweek Tupper and Whiteface combo.
I'm not sure about that. I can't seem to find that answer online anywhere... let me get in touch with my contact there and see what I can find out!
Big Tupper is where I learned to ski back in the mid 60s.  It was a fun place for kids with long straight sticks on their feet and leather boots!
Scrundy,
I just heard from our contact over at Big Tupper, and unfortunately it is going to be open on a Fri/Sat/Sunday schedule. Maybe you can hit Whiteface Thursday and Big Tupper Friday?
