Big Tupper Ski Resort is an old Adirondack ski slope that went belly up after years of bad weather and slackening attendance. It is a good set of up to 30 slopes and it really hurt the town's winter tourism economy when it expired about ten years ago. It is located on Mount Morris (3130' / 956m elevation) and is on the north slope so it retains the snow longer and has less ice than Whiteface Mountain. The slopes also get some lake effect snow off of Tupper Lake Lake. But some investors, who go under the name of The Adirondack Club and Resorts, have proposed to rebuild Big Tupper Ski Resort. They are running into flak from the APA, environmentalists, the town, village and locals and long time seasonal folks who don't care if Tupper Lake goes downhill as long as their family's camp is still secluded. When I searched on Yahoo on the project and "Big Tupper Ski Resort", I found nothing current and positive so I bought this url, www.BigTupperSkiResort.com, so I can get something going on my own.
In general I support the project. Tupper Lake suffers economically and physically in winter from lack of Big Tupper. Maybe someone can connect up some trails so cross country skiers can get to Long Lake too? This project includes plenty of fancy, expensive housing too; the real meat of their plan. But if this is going to be some gated, exclusive community for some rich downstaters who drive BMW SUVS. I might lose some enthusiasm. At least the state finally repaired and rebuilt the stretch of our NY 30 along the lake and by the entrance to the slopes and country club. Here NY 30 runs along the southeastern shore of Tupper Lake. South of there, however, the road is great the whole way to the NYS Thruway. Might as well put in a small shopping plaza in too so people won't have to drive 2.5 miles into the village for gas and coffee. Maybe they could even put in a new town beach down that way also. They have a huge state boat launch there just east of the entrance, on NY 30.
