We were recently in Tupper Lake for Oktupperfest at Big Tupper Ski Area and the leaves were at their absolute peak. It was so beautiful! In addition to archery lessons for the kids (with targets ranging from zombies to moose), live music, a pumpkin slingshot competition (that my husband won!) and a watermelon eating contest (that my son did not win, which resulted in many, many tears), there were helicopter rides over the Tupper Lake Golf Club and out towards Big Tupper Lake, then back up and down the mountain. It was wonderful to see the parking area at Big Tupper completely packed and friends all over the mountain, enjoying the beautiful day with their families. The Golf Club was also completely packed and we had to wait in line for dinner at Little Italy that night, then again the next morning at the Lumberjack. Clearly we weren’t the only ones enjoying a perfect Adirondack fall weekend. A friend made this video of his ride so you can see the beauty for yourself. Enjoy!
