Ski Big Tupper in New York will not be opening this winter due to a lack of snow. They weren’t able to operate a single day this year.
Ski Big Tupper was also closed in 2012/13 due to financial reasons.
This one hits us hard out here in Squaw Valley as this is where the legendary Scott (senior editor of MSP) and Robb Gaffney, M.D grew up skiing.
Fingers crossed for an epic winter back east next year.
“We are sorry to announce that the Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving their Economy (ARISE) Board has made the difficult decision to not open Big Tupper this season. While the weather has worked against our efforts this year, let’s keep our eye to a brighter future. Please know that this decision did not come easily and that your efforts are greatly appreciated. There are a lot of discussions taking place about the future operation – all very positive. We will make every effort to keep you updated as things unfold.” – Big Tupper on February 3rd, 2016
