In September 2009, a far-fetched idea was hatched within ARISE to re-open the Big Tupper Ski Area. People said that it couldn’t be done.  Together, we proved them wrong and in only four months we welcomed visitors to Ski Big Tupper, Again!  This was made possible by the efforts of over 200 volunteers and by the generous support of people like you.

ARISE is excited to inform you that we plan to open Big Tupper again for the 2010-2011 ski season. Work is already underway.  To make our second season possible, we will again need the efforts of our dedicated volunteers and will need your financial support.  Just to open and operate Big Tupper, even with an all-volunteer staff, costs over $100,000!  We’ve enhanced the benefits for our various sponsorship patronages and increased the opportunities to market your business to Big Tupper visitors.

ARISE strongly supports community development projects such as The Adirondack Club & Resort (ACR). The main reason for our strong support is that the ACR is the only long-term viable way for ongoing skiing at Big Tupper.  Our interim stewardship of this very special part of our community is focused on making Big Tupper sustainable and available for future generations.   There are many volunteers who have contributed hours of their time in hopes that one day in the near future, they will have the opportunity to be paid for their efforts.  At a time when the Adirondack economy is showing just how fragile it is, the Adirondack Club is the right project, at the right time, and in the right place.

Building on the huge success of our local business promotions in 2009, we’ve created a new opportunity for the community to be a part of the activity at Big Tupper. In addition to patronage opportunities, businesses and other community members in Tupper Lake can participate in the ARISE Big Tupper Business Partner Program.  Individuals, businesses or organizations that contribute at the patron level will receive a ‘Big Tupper Rewards Card’ which can be used at local businesses for a 10% or greater discount on purchases at participating businesses.

Merchants that participate in the ARISE Big Tupper Business Partner Program will be recognized in all Ski Big Tupper promotional literature, at the Ski Lodge, and spotlighted on skibigtupper.org.  This is a great opportunity for visitors to see how your business supports the community.  These businesses will also have the opportunity to highlight current specials to visitors on skibigtupper.org.
