With Black Mountain soon to be again under community ownership, AND ANNOUNCING THAT IT WILL OPEN THIS SEASON, it is now even more critical that Black Mountain continue to see strong community support. Black is one of Maine's tallest ski areas and has one of the nicest lodges anywhere, four paved parking lots and is , BY FAR, the best value in skiing in America.

Please pass the word and keep the fundraising momentum going. Remember, Bangor Savings Bank will match your contribution, making every dollar you donate worth two to the mountain.

Historic Black Mountain of Maine, a non-profit ski area that has been an epicenter of nordic racing and alpine skiing, as well as the healthy, active outdoor lifestyle in Maine for three generations, had its best year ever last year, but lost its funding source.

The nordic trails have hosted every level of competition from World Championships, to USSA National Championships, Maine State high school and middle schools state championships, Bill Koch Festivals, J2 championships, Eastern High School Championships, the Sassi Memorial - Maine's unofficial all-class state championship and the Chummy Broomhall College State Championships. Black Mountain, the Chummy Broomhall stadium and the hundreds of Chisholm volunteers in their red jackets, have been the force behind nordic skiing in the East.

The alpine ski mountain is 1,385 feet of vertical, Maine's 4th tallest, has a beautiful post and beam lodge with two museums, two fireplaces, a cafe and Last Run lounge, a new snowmaking system, as well as four paved parking lots. Last year, in an effort to expand our mission of making skiing accessible to all Mainer's, we began charging $15 for day tickets, even for vacation week, and $150 season passes with no blackout days. The result was dramatic growth, and a lot of new, young faces at the mountain.

We need your help to continue making healthy lifestyle choices accessible to everyone. Your TAX DEDUCTIBLE donations will help fund operations to keep Black Mountain open. I hope you will remember the role Black Mountain has played in your skiing career, or that of someone in your family and are inspired to give generously and pass the word to your friends to help as well.

Andy - Thanks for putting this together, along with your efforts both here at Black Mtn. and Big Rock, two ski hills that I've had the pleasure to call "home" over the years. While I will be submitting my own donation here shortly, another donation level / fund raising effort (here or elsewhere) to be considered may be the selling of "lifetime ski pass". Put the price of such a pass at 10-15X the cost of a single year's pass. Just a thought. -Ej

Black Mountain is a very special place to me. I know it's only a small amount but I hope it helps to keep things running. Thank you to the Chummy Broomhall, Rich Kent and everyone else who made Black Mountain what it was to me in high school and college and what it is today. Sincerely, Don Medd
