Thank you again for taking the time to visit us this week. I hope that you have a better understanding of the Big Tupper operation and why everyone in Tupper Lake is passionate about making Big Tupper a viable, permanent part of our community.
ARISE re-opened Big Tupper last year with the help of over 200 volunteers and the promise of a prosperous future for Tupper Lake with the development of the Adirondack Club and Resort.
We are more confident than ever that Big Tupper will continue to be a very special place in the future and will offer an amazing experience for everyone inside and outside of the blue line.
We look forward to hosting you and your readers during the upcoming ski season and keeping you all updated with all of the great happenings at Big Tupper!

Ski Big Tupper, Again!
OK! How's the grub? Well, we are working on that. Because we are working on a very TIGHT budget, we don't have a kitchen. That opens a whole can of worms. The Health Dept. then gets involved. We are working on a cook wagon for this season.
Another food option might be what happens at West Mtn each week. There's a guy who bbq's all day in their parking lot one day a week, I thinks it Saturday . Don't know if he gives away food or if others also bring grub but it's sorta a big deal there. They have a permanent area roped off for him in the north parking lot and maybe even a BBQ pit. He even sends food up the lift to the lifties and Patrol. They Love it! It's popular. It builds camaraderie. West lets him do it even tho they have a restaurant and cafeteria.
Sooooo how would this fit into Tupper? Maybe just an area to BBQ and some PR about it. If you were lucky, you may even find a soul like West Mtn has who does it weekly on his own. Parking lot? Slopeside? Half Day? Apres ski?
heres some info: open fri sat sun .. try to be open for school vacations ie christmas and winter break...no snowmaking but the trails will be groomed. no cafeteria but a food wagon will be outside. there will be an extended menu this winter
The opening date of course depends on mother nature!! Big Tupper closed only one week before Titus MT did last year with snowmaking. So Mother nature and Bill M. did an outstanding job. As for food.. bring a BBQ grill and have a tailgate party or support the food wagon. Think snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
