CORTLAND, New York (December 22, 2022) Greek Peak Mountain Resort recently announced the Grand Opening of Chair 3 for the 2022-23 season, sponsored by M&T Bank. Chair 3 currently serves the Alpha slope of the mountain and was upgraded to a triple-chair to better serve the growing number of new skiers coming to the resort.

M&T Bank is a proud sponsor of the recently upgraded Chair 3, a triple-chair lift at Greek Peak’s Alpha slope, which will play host to many new skiers this year through Greek Peak’s brand new Intro2Snow program.

“If there was anything positive that came from the pandemic, it’s the number of new skiers who came outside and took to the slopes to learn how to ski at Greek Peak,” said Wes Kryger, president of Greek Peak Mountain Resort. “The upgrade of Chair 3 enables us to serve many more new and beginner-level skiers on Alpha and speaks volumes to our commitment to making Greek Peak a lifelong, family destination.”

Peter Newman, Regional President at M&T Bank added, “Greek Peak is one of Central New York’s premier recreational resorts, and we at M&T Bank are proud to partner with them and support this latest improvement, which will benefit beginning skiers of all ages.”

Chair 3


The timing of the ribbon-cutting for Chair 3 coincides with the beginning of a new Intro2Snow program being offered at Greek Peak this season. Intro2Snow is a progressive beginner level program geared toward the new skier or snowboarder to help promote a life-long

love of snow sports. This program gives a new skier or boarder everything they need for their first time on the slopes, all in one package, which includes a 90-minute beginner group lesson, rental equipment, and a full day of access to our Beginner Zone. By the end of your first Intro2Snow visit, you should be able to:

  • Put on your equipment.
  • Ride the Boardwalk lift.
  • Turn left and right.
  • Control your speed.
  • Stop and start from the top to the bottom of the Ligo slope.

Another great feature of the Intro2Snow program is that you are investing in future opportunities to access the entire mountain. Each Intro2Snow session you purchase gets banked towards the cost of a Beginner Zone or Individual Season Pass. Invest in yourself and build your skills, then upgrade to the full mountain experience.
