Greek Peak

Greek Peak Mountain Resort is a ski resort in New York, with a vertical drop of 952 feet (290 m), located near Cortland, New York. Greek Peak offers day and night skiing 7 days a week from late December until mid March. This mountain features 32 trails with varied terrain. It also has 6 lifts, 2 magic carpet lifts, and a tubing center with a tubing handle tow. A cross country Nordic center featuring 10 trails is also available. A terrain park with various elements is also located on the mountain along with the Progression Park, which is more suited for people just starting out in the parks. Greek Peak also offers lessons for all ages and every level of skier or boarder.

Greek Peak was founded in 1958 by members of the Cortland Ski Club. New York's Governor, Averell Harrimen, conducted the Opening Day ceremonies for the new ski resort. By 1960, two T-Bars had been built and construction had begun on a new lodge. In 1962, Al Kryger was commissioned to build the first chairlift in central New York. Greek Peak then led the industry by developing the idea of offering packages to local schools and colleges. They now accommodate various schools and colleges from around the region during the winter months.
