Greek Peak


For anxious skiers and snowboarders eager to hit the slopes, Central New York’s mountains have good news: they’re officially open…and staying open as of this weekend.  Recent snowfall and frigid temperatures are already proving this year is off to a better than the last, which has Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Greek Peak Mountain Resort Jessica Sloma both thankful and excited.

Many Central New Yorkers probably aren't complaining about the late arrival of winter weather.  But that’s definitely not the case among ski resorts and those who hope to hit the slopes.  Peter Harris is owner operator of Song Mountain in Tully and Labrador Mountain in Truxton.  Neither has yet to open and stay open. 

"We're looking forward to some lake effect, and we're looking forward to some nor easters.  The winter's not a total bust yet.”                                            

Harris hopes they can this weekend if they can make some snow.

  Summer season might not be the time you think about heading to a ski resort. Greek Peak owners John Meier and Marc Stemerman have been skiing on the mountain for the past thirty years. But it wasn’t until last summer that they took time to enjoy the off season.
