Greek Peak opens first slope for winter

CORTLAND, N.Y. – After an agonizingly slow start to the winter, Greek Peak Mountain Resort finally managed to create enough artificial snow to open its first slope for the 2016 season.

"Temperatures have been marginal for snowmaking and the ten day forecast shows warming throughout the week," Greek Peak Sales and Marketing rep. Jessica Sloma said in a press release Sunday. "However, with the slow start to winter, Greek Peak Mountain Resort knows that their customers have been waiting patiently to hit the slopes."

On Monday, Greek Peak opened its Alpha Slope from 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. at $35 per lift ticket. Alpha Slope is a green, or beginner, trial.

Sloma says the resort will continue their snowmaking as long as temperatures allow and will open additional terrain as soon as possible.
