That's a bummer. I managed to get there for President's weekend last year...got in 14 runs for $15. Doubt I'll ever beat that again. It really is a shame that they weren't able to stay open.
When they announced the closing for this season, I thought about how many people would make the hike or take a snowmobile up the mountain. With the snowfall so far this season, I expect more than a few people have done it, hence the article. I had a similar conversation with someone about Bearpen Mtn. in the Catskills the other day...if someone is determined enough to make the trek up the mountain, one newspaper article won't stop them.
I'm thinking about their decision to sell a groomer. Even with the pessimistic outlook of the Big Tupper project following the Article 78 suit, why give up that quickly? Selling off their snowmaking equipment years earlier certainly had an impact on their ability to operate the last few seasons...
Unlike Gore and Whireface, Tupper is located on privately owned land. Simple concept of private property.
I know. They can do whatever they want on their own property. I was just saying I'd like to be able to ski there without resorting to stealth techniques or worrying about getting arrested for trespassing.
Seems that a simple sign could absolve them of liability, but I'm no lawyer.
