Why would you want them to buy that, it would mean far less upgrades to the other venues as they sink money into that money pit.

Aren't they all money pits? None of them turn a profit so why not Tupper as well.

I've heard Gore does turn a profit, and the money is used to help fund everything else.  For all the money I spend at Gore I should get some free bobsled rides or something

Tupper sounds like it would be another drain if it can't be operated at least at cost.   Again, why don't the signatories form a coop, put their money where their mouth is and collectively buy it out and run it like MRG.

Excellent!!! So there's no reason for NYS taxpayers (ORDA) to sink anymore money in that particular venue, so lets bring on Tupper.

Tupper has been totally screwed over the last 25 years by Orda, by the ambulance chasers at Protect, the APA for allowing Protect to drain the developer, and by the developer themselves that dragged it out when they knew they didn’t have the funding to pull it off.  Tupper needs something good to happen and Orda has a dual mission of bring winter sports to the region and economic development .

There are some major hotel developments going into Saranac Lake and Tupper would be closer to them than WF.  I think it would add much needed green and blue terrain to Orda as well.  Orda is spending money on stupid things let’s spend it on skiing instead.  It would make sense if Tupper could offer some night skiing.

I could definitely see Clarkson and STL training SL there at least part of time to cut down On their drives if Nysef sets up shop at Tupper as they now have down at Belleyre.

 Tupper gets more lake effect than WF as well.

I don’t know all the ins, outs, nuances and history regarding Big Tupper.....but fact seems to be (for whatever reasons) Tupper was just not a viable ski area.  Are you sure it’s in the State’s best long term interests to just throw money at a new venue that has already proven to be a failure?

Define failure.  Right or wrong govt spending isn't usually evaluated with a traditional ROI measure. Stuff like roads or health services are done for different kinds of return.
