Long Lake Commits to ARISE

Chairlift at Big Tupper

Long Lake sponsors a Chair Lift Tower on Big Tupper

On Wednesday, October 28th, 2009, The Town Board of Long Lake pledged support to the revitalization of the Big Tupper Ski Area with a gift of $1500 to a Double Diamond Ski Pole on Chair Two. Chair Two services two-thirds of the Big Tupper Mt. Morris Ski Area. The Town of Long Lake discussed the importance of reaching out to our neighboring communities to foster economic relationships and develop opportunities for our kids to ski locally.

Tupper Lake has a core group of volunteers comprising ARISE with the goal of re-opening Big Tupper Ski hill on weekends all-volunteer run. Long Lake is 22 miles away and has a population of skiers young and old who remember learning to ski on Tupper slopes. Building up the winter economy is vital to the Adirondack region.

Day passes will be $15.00 a person.
