Plans to develop a ski resort in Tupper Lake promise to bring jobs to the area and improvements to the ski experience.
The plans are centered around Mount Morris and 859 of the 6, 261 acres which surround it. Thus, 85% of the land, in addition to state-protected areas, will remain untouched open space.
Once completed, the new building will be known as the Adirondack Club and Resort, or ACR.
According to Preserve Associates, the developing company, Mount Morris is unique because it is the only operational ski hill held privately in the Adirondacks.
The project is predicted to create nearly 600 permanent jobs in both the ski area and resort operations.
So far developments are in planning stages, but the company is hoping to begin construction soon.
