TUPPER LAKE - Without snowmaking, the Big Tupper Ski Area has only been open one day so far this winter.
So the owners of the Titus Mountain Ski Area in Malone have offered to give Big Tupper season pass holders a break, selling them a day ticket for $10.
"We are very grateful to the Monette's and the Titus ski family for this generous offer," said Jim LaValley, chairman of Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving their Economy, the nonprofit group running Big Tupper.
LaValley said in a press release that brothers Brian and Bruce Monette, who bought Titus Mountain last year, presented the offer to him during a meeting to discuss cross marketing efforts, which was also attended by Zach White, who is managing both ski slopes.
"We understand the volunteer effort underway at Big Tupper, and its success only stands to help us succeed," the Monettes said in a press release. "This offer is our way of helping ARISE, the skiers of Big Tupper, and the ski industry as a whole. Our region needs to work together so that we can all succeed."
Big Tupper season pass holders only need to show their pass at the Titus ticket counter for this special offer.
Season passes at Big Tupper range from $95 for an individual between 7 and 18 years old to $495 for a family. The passes are nonrefundable.
