Greek Peak Mountain Resort is getting a 1.3 million-dollar makeover next winter. On April 19, Greek Peak announced a list of upgrades for next season that include:
- an investment of $700,000 towards snowmaking upgrades
- a new trail project
- a replacement and upgrade project for Chair 3
- over 9,000 feet of new water pipe and 5,000 feet of new airline
- additional snowmaking to three trails
- a brand-new family-style ski trail
The Chair 3 upgrade project will top $600,000 and should be ready to go for the 2022-23 ski season. Combining this project with the previously announced $700,000 snow-making and new trail project brings the ski-side investment to over $1.3 million for the coming season.
Brand new snow-making lines will be installed on three trails: Hercules, Zephyr, and Lower Pollux, while a new pumphouse and new pumps will be installed more than doubling water output to run new, high-efficiency snow guns.
In addition to the snow-making upgrades, a brand-new family-style ski trail is being designed between Chair 4 and Chair 5 for the 2022-23 ski season. The trail, nearly 2,000 feet long with 300 feet of vertical, will feature high berm turns with rollers and beginner glades on the side. As the largest ski resort in central New York, this will bring Greek Peak’s ski trail total to fifty-six this coming season.
“Investments like these are significant and they’re part of what has made Greek Peak a regional skiing destination for so many years,” Wes Kryger said, Greek Peak’s president. “Our focus continues to be on the mountain, the resort amenities, and the overall guest experience.”
