TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. (AP) – Turtles like lakes, right? But do they ski?

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that the filmmakers producing next year's “Ninja Turtles” movie will
find out when they film some scenes at the closed Big Tupper Ski Area in
Tupper Lake.

Paramount Pictures is remaking the popular 1980s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It is tentatively scheduled for release in 2014.

Village Mayor Paul Maroun says the movie company
needed a closed ski resort and Big Tupper fit the bill. The ski mountain
in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains has been closed because of
financial problems.

Up to 80 people are expected to work on the shoot, which begins next week.
