An early snowfall in Central New York allowed the snowmaking crews at Greek Peak Ski Resort to “jump the guns” last night (November 7), and company officials say they plan to open up early this year.
In a press release, company officials noted their early start will be helped along by the recent addition of 18 new HKD snow guns to the Iliad on the main side of the mountain.
“It’s been quite a while since Greek Peak was able to start snowmaking operations this early in the season,” said Sales & Marketing VP Drew Broderick. “The snowmaking team at Greek Peak are ready to make the most of this arctic blast and expect to get in some solid nights and a few good days of snowmaking in hopes to kick off an early ski season.”
According to Greek Peak President Wes Kryger, the current plan is to have at least the first trails of the season open as early as one week from now.
“Our snowmakers are ready to get to work,” said Kryger. “If Mother Nature cooperates we hope to open on November 15th. We are looking forward to an amazing season!”
Greek Peak opened in December 1958 and is the largest ski area in Central NY with 53 trails, 8 lifts, 4 terrain parks, 10 lanes of snow tubing, as well as Nordic ski and snowshoe terrain.
