If there’s at least one good thing about the early winter weather in Central New York, it has to revolve around early snowsports at Greek Peak Ski Resort.
With a little boost from Mother Nature, snowmakers have been hard at work getting the mountain to open ahead of schedule. Officials now confirm opening weekend will begin tomorrow and run through Sunday (November 15-17).
That’s the earliest that’s happened in decades.
“This is a great surprise for our staff and guests,” said VP of Sales & Marketing Drew Broderick. “Since we kicked off snowmaking last week our phones have been ringing off the hook. Everyone is ready to get back on the slopes.”
Historically, Greek Peak hasn’t been able to open the first trails of the season until the day after Thanksgiving, at the earliest.
All-day tickets will be $49, with hours running 9:30am-4pm tomorrow and 8:30am-4pm Saturday and Sunday.
The mountain will be open weekends-only until the day after Thanksgiving, when they’ll expand to include weekdays too.
Opening trails are expected to include Odyssey, Iliad, Karyatis, Meadow, Platonic and Alpha.
Private lessons for experienced beginners through advanced levels will be available on a limited basis, and Guest Services will be open a half hour before the published open time and a half hour after the lifts close.
Greek Peak trail conditions can be found here and updates will also be made on the Greek Peak Facebook page.
Toggenburg Opening Day Information:
The owners of Greek Peak also own Toggenburg mountain in Fabius and anticipated that will also open on Saturday.
Those details will be announced when available on Toggenburg’s Facebook page and website.
