Gore Mountain in North Creek; Whiteface in Lake Placid; and Belleayre Mountain Ski Center in Highmount, in central New York’s Ulster County. These three ski resorts all have one thing in common; all are operated by the New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority.
The Adirondack’s Big Tupper announced last week they had to throw in the towel on skiing this winter. In a year that has found many Northeast resorts relying heavily on man-made snow, the volunteer-run ski area with no snowmaking capabilities has made the tough decision to not open.
Volunteers who re-opened Big Tupper Ski Area in the New York Adirondack Mountains in 2009 threw in the proverbial towel this week. The ski area will not open this winter.
