Big Tupper Ski Area

As one of the oldest and most treasured ski areas in NY, Big Tupper ranks in the top 5 for vertical drop in the State. The mountain's three lifts transport skiers and riders to 25 trails, offering a variety of terrain ranging from the beginner to expert skill levels.

Big Mountain - Big Spirit

Big Tupper Ski Area is a true representation of Tupper Lake's character. After nearly a decade hiatus, the mountain reopened in 2009 operating as a not-for-profit ski resort. Volunteers and community minded individuals are at the heart and soul of Big Tupper. Today, the family oriented Big Tupper Ski Area serves up affordable, no-frill alpine skiing and snowboarding!

Big Mountain - Low Prices!

For families looking for an inexpensive way to enjoy the slopes, Big Tupper is the place to ski or ride. Take advantage of the opportunity to hit these natural snow covered trails for only $25 a day. So come hit the mountain without putting a dent in your wallet. 

Big Mountain - Bright Future!

Planned upgrades and developments are in the pipelines for Big Tupper Ski Area as part of the much anticipated Adirondack Club and Resort (ACR) Project. However, with all the exciting changes expected, we guarantee one thing will stay the same...Big Tupper will continue to be a cornerstone for family fun during Adirondack's colder months. The Ski Area is currently closed due to the beginning of the ACR project.
