The nonprofit Maine Winter Sports Center, which has owned the Bigrock Mountain community ski area in Mars Hill, Maine since 2000 and has administered outside financial support from the Libra Foundation, has announced that it is ending its relationship with the mountain.
"When we bought Bigrock Mountain in 2000, with the funding from the Libra Foundation, the intent was to give the mountain a meaningful opportunity at being sustainable for the long term," said Andy Shepard, President and CEO of the MWSC. "At that point we envisioned turning the mountain over to a non-profit, community-based ownership. That time has now come. Bigrock has made significant progress over the past 13 years and we are proud of the work that has been done, it's time to see if it can become a truly community-backed enterprise again, as Black Mountain recently has become."
