Backcountry skiing: Big Tupper

Big Tupper Ski Area in Tupper Lake had been closed for more than 10 years.  This year a grass-roots effort to bring back Big Tupper saw a large portion of the mountain up and running again!  The lifts only run on the weekends and $15 gets you on the mountain all day–quite a deal these days!

My Dad and I though were skiing Big Tupper on a Monday–the only way to the top was to skin up–which we did on the side of the mountain that is still not lift-served.

The tour up to the summit was strenuous as always, but the deep (albeit heavy) powder was great skiing!
