Dec 31, 2009 — The Big Tupper ski lifts ran yesterday for the first time in more than a decade. A planned opening day the day after Christmas was postponed because of weather. But new snow and cold temperatures cooperated this week.
Jim LaValley helped resurrect the ski mountain. He's a realtor and president of ARISE, the acronym for Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving their Economy. On All Before Five yesterday afternoon, he told Jonathan Brown the turn out was "incredible."
