To run an independent, non-profit ski hill is not always an easy endeavor. However, through the help of the community, such mountains can survive and be wonderful places to spend the ski season. Whaleback Mountain is one of those places and they are asking for some help before next season.

Whaleback Mountain, which is situated in central New Hampshire, is a small, community hill that is run by the Upper Valley Snow Sports Foundation. The operation is non-profit and independent, meaning they do rely on the money taken in during the season, as well as help through fundraising during the offseason, which they are doing currently via their website and social media.

"The Upper Valley Snow Sports Foundation (UVSSF), doing business as Whaleback Mountain, is a nonprofit entity with the mission to support and enhance an affordable, healthy, and sustainable snow sports experience in the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont."

According to the fundraising page on Facebook, they are looking to raise a total of $50,000 to go towards repairs of the base lodge. During the spring, the weather caused damage to the windows allowing for water to get into the lodge. It was while those repairs were being made that rot was discovered in the framing of the building, which needs to be repaired before the coming 2019-2020 season.

Currently, there has been just over $600 donated to the cause over the last 22 days. That leaves the mountain with a large amount to raise, but it can be done with help from the public. If you would like to assist in any way, follow the links in this piece for ways to donate online or don't hesitate to contact the mountain or the UVSSF directly if you have questions or would like another way to help out. They would certainly appreciate it.
