Thanks to the Allagash Brewing Company's Grant Program, Black Mountain Ski Resort is expanding the seating area on the Second Floor of our Base Lodge.
When the possibility of Black Mountain not opening was announced last summer, the ski community decided that was not a option. Immediately, individuals and businesses alike began to donate in an attempt to keep Black Mountain open. Former Rumford native, and Allagash Brewing Company employee, Eric Meader was among the first to ask how he could help.
Black Mountain had just come off a great season with over 198% growth in skier visits. On many of these busy weekends we found that there was a need for more space in the base lodge. Expanding skier seating was a way for Allagash Brewing Company to help.
A request was submitter to the Allagash Brewing Company Funding Committee to help with the lodge seating expansion. Black Mountain was one of twenty successful recipients of this year's donations. The Funding Committee recognized and believed in Black Mountain's mission to provide healthy outdoor recreation at a price that is affordable for people in Maine.
Jim Reuter of Smith Reuter Lull Architects was contacted to design the expansion. Design donation from his firm, along with locally donated materials and labor will allow the 280 square foot expansion to take place this season.
Although weather conditions have been up and down this ski season, people who discovered the new Black mountain last season are back and bringing friends along with them. While the $15 lift tickets and the $150 season passes are bringing people to Black Mountain, the value, great snow conditions and family friendly atmosphere are keeping them coming back.
