In 1958, New York Gov. Averell Harriman conducted the Opening Day Ceremonies for a new ski area called Greek Peak. The governor called it a “first-class development” and predicted that it would “make a real contribution to skiing in New York State.”
By 1960, two T-Bars had been built and construction began on the A-Frame Lodge. A young Al Kryger was commissioned to build Central New York’s first chairlift in 1962. Greek Peak recognized the potential for skiing and led the industry in developing the concept of packaging and selling to local schools and colleges. This philosophy, combined with early pioneering in snowmaking and night skiing, brought Greek Peak to the forefront of ski areas in the East.
In the early 1970s, Al Kryger had the foresight to begin planning for the next phase of Greek Peak’s growth. He was instrumental in acquiring land adjacent to the ski area, and a master plan for a new recreational community was drawn. Over the years, the development of slope-side condominiums and townhouses has transformed Greek Peak from a ski area into a full-fledged regional destination ski resort and year-round recreational resort.
In 2013, John Meier and Marc Stemerman, began a new era of ownership at Greek Peak. Both were long time season passholders and avid snowsports enthusiasts. During their partnership they made substantial capital improvements in snowmaking, grooming and at the base area to improve the on and off snow experience for customers. In 2015, Toggenburg was added to the portfolio which allows guests the opportunity to upgrade to a reciprocal season pass (Greekenburg Pass) at two ski areas.
In 2019, John and Christine Meier became the sole owners of Greek Peak and sister ski area Toggenburg. Greek Peak has been the home mountain for the Meiers’ for over 30 years. The Meier’s oldest daughter has taught at the ski school and their younger children, a son and daughter, are active in the Greek Peak racing program. “We are a family of skiers and we were customers long before we were owners. Snowsports, Greek Peak and Toggenburg are near and dear to our hearts”, exclaims, J. Meier.
