The Great White Shark may have taken the ACR bait but he just spit the hook.

This has been my plan for the last 15 years, but somehow, I haven't won yet.

If ORDA's mission is to empower depressed areas of the state through sports, NY State should buy Big Tupper, sink a couple million into lift, lodge & snowmaking upgrades, then sell it in 10-15 years. Tupper Lake is one of those Upstate NY towns that really seems to struggle (that grocery store across from where they do Woodsman Days is one of the saddest places in the state). I think a huge infusion of money would be pretty effective (more effective than a "Mountain Coaster" at Mount Van Hoevenberg, imo).
I tend to be shocked when MC and i agree about anything.

Seems that Franklin Co foreclosing and then transferring Tupper to Orda could be a workable plan.  Makes way more sense than wasting money on Belleryre

Orda is talking about spending $32 million on Mt VanHo for a new lodge which is just a stupid idea.  Divert even a third of that to Tupper and get it back running.  Probably would take a year or so to get the summit there running so make it skinning access up there to give Tupper a niche.  The town of Tupper really needs a boost

Also it would seem like maybe your u could get Clarkson and StL university’s to invest to use for their  ski teams and students use.

Maybe get Amazon to build a distribution center there - yea, right. I was reading in the Adirondack Magazine that they can’t get people to fill out surveys and forms to give the municipalities access to state and federal grant money for infrastructure, they are worried about severe under counting in the census.

Tupper is a lost cause. It needs to focus on summer tourism and lake front property owners.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.

Coach we need to remember this is NYS we're talking about. The same state that wants to do away with the regents diploma to increase graduation rates. HUH?? Like wow, that makes zero sense.

Gotta disagree on this.  After ~ 40 years of benign neglect, it's time to bring Mt van Ho into the present.

Right, because nothing has changed in the Regents system before. Certainly not since you have been in school:
The first Regents exams, instituted in 1876, covered dozens of subjects, including zoology, Latin, and philosophy. In the 1900s, the tests were modernized to include subjects like commercial law, homemaking and mechanical design.

The tests were optional, and until 1996, the state had a two-tiered diploma system, in which students could earn a Regents-endorsed diploma or obtain a Local diploma by taking a less rigorous "competency test," depending on whether they intended to go to college.

As the economy evolved, and a college degree became a prerequisite for most occupations, there was a push to make the Regents diploma mandatory, at the time seen as shift toward educational equity.

Nope. When you and I were in school, the people who couldn't get a "Regents Diploma" could just get a regular diploma and still graduate. When they took that away, and made the Regents Diploma mandatory, less people graduated.

Maybe read an article or two before going on a rant about something you don't seem to know anything about.
