Benefits Of Mountain Air

Ever thought about the air you breathe in a hotel?

eTN Staff Writer  Aug 06, 2009

Pristine mountain air has long been touted for its health benefits and as one of the reasons for the high success rate of hospitals in the Swiss Alps. Einstein, researching treatment for his sister who contracted TB, determined that it was higher ion levels that produced the pure air quality and healthful benefits.

True to their commitment to provide four-star accommodations while maintaining environmental integrity, developers of Hope Lake Lodge & Indoor Waterpark at Greek Peak Mountain Resort have installed a system designed to replicate the healthful benefits of fresh mountain air. The energy-efficient AtmosAir system uses bi-polar ionization technology to increase ion levels in the air, matching the levels found at higher mountain elevations.

"We are sparing no expense to stay true to our vision for this resort," said Al Kryger, president of Greek Peak Mountain Resort. "Hope Lake Lodge will provide an atmosphere that is healthy, natural, environmentally friendly, and luxuriously comfortable - right down to the mountain fresh air."

The AtmosAir system will be in all of the hallways and public areas throughout the resort, cleansing air of allergens, dust, odors, and particles as small as airborne viruses. Each room utilizes the varied refrigerate heating and cooling system for highest energy conservation and comfort. The Indoor Waterpark will have both the AtmosAir system and an ultraviolet light system to ensure the complete elimination of any mold.

Airy and elegant, Hope Lake Lodge & Indoor Waterpark at Greek Peak Mountain Resort is designed in the "Northwoods" style, blending the beauty of the natural environment with well-thought-out architectural features that invite the outdoors in.

A limited number of quarter-share condominium ownership opportunities are still available, and reservations for stays beginning in December 2009 are also being accepted at The resort and 41,000-square-foot Indoor Waterpark is nearing completion with the opening scheduled for Fall 2009.

Greek Peak Mountain Resort, the largest Central New York ski resort, was founded in 1958 and has remained at the leading edge of the ski industry with thirty-two trails, six aerial lifts, two surface lifts, beginners' slope, three Terrain Parks, and a Progression Park. Additionally, Greek Peak Mountain Resort operates a full-service Nordic Center with groomed Cross Country and Snowshoe Trails.

The four-season resort is located in New York's scenic Finger Lakes region, conveniently just minutes from I-81. Amenities include three restaurants, a world-class customized spa, fitness center, and a 41,000-square-foot indoor waterpark. The resort is positioned within 7,000 acres of state-protected land that is accessible by all residents and guests for cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, and horseback riding.
