Peek'n Peak Resort Celebrates 50 Years

FRENCH CREEK, N.Y. - This ski season marks the 50th anniversary of Peek'n Peak resort in French Creek, complete with a special commemorative logo to help celebrate.
"We've been through some good times and bad times. We're still here and going strong," said Brad Gravink, Peek'n Peak Director of  Mountain Operations.
Back in 2011, Scott Enterprises purchased the aging resort and spent millions in renovations and upgrades.
"Reinvesting in the resort and being operators of the resort and I've been here through all of it and it's really refreshing," said Gravink.
"Happy 50th Peek'n Peak. Teens, low 20's, no wind, sunny, it's going to be a great day," said Jonathan Summers of Pennsylvania.
Thousands of skiers and snowboarders from across the region took advantage of the better weather and hit the slopes.
"It's the opportunity to feel weightless, you're sliding, your covering all this terrain without any energy, and then you make a turn, the powder feels so soft," said Summers.
"It's wonderful especially for a place here in our area, its a nice place for us to come up and enjoy," said Nichole Summers of Pennsylvania.
The resort not only generates a lot of tax revenue for the area, it also employs about 1000 people in the winter.
Gravink says the anniversary season has been a good one, despite the recent arctic blast.
"It's definitely something that we're challenged by. If you dress properly and you've got your facemask and everything, goggles, layer up, you'll be just fine out here," said Gravink.
The resort will host a number of anniversary events throughout the year.

Funding sought for Chautauqua County Bigfoot Museum

MAYVILLE – A vacation cottage property owner is seeking $100,000 from Chautauqua County for a Bigfoot Museum, and he is receiving encouragement to apply for the money.
Peter Weimer from We Whan Chu Cottages on Chautauqua Lake told the county’s planning and economic development committee last week that he has been talking about local Bigfoot sightings at sports, travel and outdoor shows in Cleveland, Erie and Hamburg.
“I created the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo as a tourism special event,” Weimer said.
“Since I have created this event 3½ years ago, I am up to 18 eyewitnesses from Chautauqua County.”
Most of the sightings were reported by people who preferred to remain anonymous, Weimer said.
“But they are resolving themselves knowing that they have seen a Bigfoot but were afraid for reasons of ridicule that they didn’t want to speak publicly of it,” he added.
Weimer also acknowledged that he sees the profitability of the Bigfoot Museum in the county.
“This was a special event that I was just entering as an entrepreneur, and it came back and kind of surprised me,” he said of the popularity of the Bigfoot Expo that he has hosted in the fall.
George Borrello, chairman of the Planning and Economic Development Committee, encouraged Weimer to fill out an application for funds.
“Well, whether or not you have to believe is one thing but if it is something that would draw tourists and create economic impact. If that can be proven, then that is certainly worth discussing,” Borrello said.
Borrello gave Weimer information about the grant application available online on the county’s website for the funds.
“The whole purpose of the grant is to start new tourism attractions in Chautauqua County,” Borrello said.
Weimer said he will continue to promote the Bigfoot Expo at shows throughout the Great Lakes Region.
