Last month, we previewed the New York ski season with updates on several ski resorts in the state. Thursday, one of the most exciting developments launched as Greek Peak Mountain Resort— the largest ski destination in Central New York— upgraded its accommodations and became one of the only places in the country where travelers can hit the powdery slopes by day and splash around waterslides and pools by night.
The addition of Hope Lake Lodge, a 106-unit, four-star condo hotel; Waterfalls Spa, a 5,500-square-foot luxury spa; and the 41,000-square-foot Cascades Indoor Waterpark have transformed the popular ski destination into a four-season resort. The development plan for the new property additions was first conceived in 1975 and constructed during the past year. In addition to luxury and family-friendly elements, the resort's developments were executed with environmentally-conscious plans.
Green features such as enhanced energy efficiency, water conservation, locally made sustainable furniture, and advanced VRV heating/ cooling systems have all been blended into the design of the resort. The five-story, Northwoods-style luxury condominiums at Hope Lake Lodge each have a full kitchen and a fireplace. Amenities also include a state-of-the-art fitness center, restaurant, cafe, and lounge. The four-star condominiums are available for quarter-share purchase and traditional hotel stays.
Greek Peak includes 32 trails served by six lifts, three Terrain Parks, and a full-service Nordic Center,
