Central New York's Greek Peak Buys Toggenburg; Offers Reciprocal Passes
Owners of Greek Peak Mountain Resort in Cortland, N.Y., have purchased nearby Toggenburg Mountain Winter Sports Center. Toggenburg and Greek Peak will allow season pass holders two-for one-value in Central New York skiing and boarding with reciprocal season pass privileges at each mountain.
“We’re giving pass holders something better by joining with Greak Peak,” former Toggenberg owner Jim Hickey told SnoCountry.com. “We hope to expose the Syracuse market to Toggenbug, a great place to learn to ski.”
Toggenburg is about 22 miles south of Syracuse and 30 miles north of Greek Peek.
Since acquiring Greek Peak in April 2013, owners Marc Stemerman and John Meier have invested nearly $9 million in mountain improvements, including the first and only quad chairlift in Central New York, new grooming equipment, and new snowmaking infrastructure.
Former owner Jim Hickey will continue to operate the Toggenburg’s on-mountain restaurant, The Foggy Goggle, as well as bringing his culinary talents and skills to Greek Peak's four-season food and beverage operation.
There are no major plans for change to the daily operations of Toggenburg Mountain throughout the 2015-16 season. Toggenburg customers can expect the same great service and sense of community as always.
Toggenburg has 21 trails, including two terrain parks, serviced by five lifts. As the largest ski resort in Central New York, Greek Peak has 32 trails, six aerial lifts, two surface lifts, beginners' slope, and three terrain parks. Greek Peak also operates a full service Nordic center with groomed cross country and snowshoe trails with an average annual snowfall of 122 inches.
