Tupper Lake Resort





NYT article (Feb 9, 2012) on a new resort project in Tupper Lake leaves me fearing that the backcountry will continue to diminish.

This 6,300 acre project will include 650 units of housing, a hotel, a ski area (Big Tupper re-vamped), a marina, and an equestrian center. This is a dangerous precedent.

The wilderness is what makes the ADK special to me. If you want the suburbs, move to Whitesboro, East Aurora, Pittsford, Fayetteville, or any place 100 miles around NYC. Don't pave paradise, because slowly but surely, we are.
