Efforts Underway To Save Black Mountain Ski Resort In Rumford

Source:Facebook

A couple of weeks ago, the news did not look good for Black Mountain Ski Resort. Black Mountain’s owner, the nonprofit group, Maine Winter Sports, announced that it was losing too much money. Rumford voters also decided against giving the resort more funding.Things have changed for the better over the past few weeks.

Since the announcement of closing the ski resort, more than $75,000 has been donated to help reach Black Mountain’s goal of raising $150,000.

They have 20 days to get to that $150,000 goal or Maine Winter Sports will have to close the ski resort.

The news got even better on Thursday, when Bangor Savings Bank made a $25,000 matching challenge. Yellow Light Breen, Executive Vice President of Bangor Savings Bank, told WCSH television that ‘we will help keep Black Mountain open for Rumford, and open for Maine.’

Donations can be made at skiblackmountain.org or at any Bangor Savings Bank Branches.
