For the last six years, Big Tupper Ski Area has been run by a dedicated team of volunteers who formed the group Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving their Economy (ARISE). According to a recent report by Adirondack Daily Enterprise, the volunteers will be at it again, operating the mountain for a seventh, and presumably final, season.
The reason for it potentially being the volunteers’ last season is that Big Tupper is a central part of the Adirondack Club & Resort (ACR), a planned four-season recreational resort that will include an extensive list of activities and more than 640 vacation homes. ARISE officials anticipate that operation of the ski area will be transferred to ACR by next winter.
This year, skiers and snowboarders can expect Big Tupper to be open according to the same schedule as in previous years; Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays throughout the winter with $25 tickets. Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that the mountain is aiming to be up and running by Christmas week.
