Link: NY Ski Blog Interviews New Owners of Greek Peak

Image credit: Greek Peak Mountain Resort

Our friends at the NY Ski Blog have posted an interesting interview with the new owners of Greek Peak in Cortland, NY, who purchased the bankrupt resort this summer. As a Cornell alum who bought 6 Greek Peak season passes during his time in Ithaca, I'm particularly hopeful that new management can turn the struggling resort around. From NYSB's interview, it seems that major infrastructure improvements await as well as the long-discussed possible expansion of terrain and lifts.
