BIGROCK MOUNTAIN RECEIVES GIFT OF $350,000.00 Posted: 05/31/2017

  

May 31st, 2017

 

Bigrock Mountain in Mars Hill Announces Major Gift

 

Presque Isle Native, Mary Barton Smith Launches

Bigrock Capital Campaign with a $350,000 Gift

 

Mars Hill, Me Bigrock Mountain Alpine Ski Area announced today a major gift from Mary Barton Smith to kick off its capital campaign.  Mrs. Smith has shown a consistent commitment in much of her philanthropy to the health and wellness of all ages of Maine’s population.  Her investments in the Rodney Smith Center for Fitness and Occupational Wellness, The Outdoor Sports Institute, The Presque Isle Community Center and now Bigrock Mountain, reflect that commitment.

 

Bigrock was founded in 1961 and at 980 vertical feet, is the tallest ski area in northern Maine and the Maritimes.  With 35 trails and pricing designed to make the mountain affordable for everyone, it is one of the best skiing values in New England.  Bigrock operates as a 501C3 non-profit and is led by a volunteer board, with a mission to make skiing as a healthy, active, outdoor lifestyle accessible to all.

 

“Northern Maine has long snowy winters, and to lead healthy lives people of all ages need affordable access to outdoor winter recreation,” said Mrs. Smith.  “I’m excited to start the Bigrock Capital Fund and hope others will join the effort to make this important community resource available for future generations”

 

“Mary’s gift will have a profound and lasting impact on our mountain and the people we serve,” said Darrell McCrum, Chairman of the Bigrock board.  “We will immediately start reaching out to those we hope will be inspired by Mary to join our campaign”

 

The Bigrock Capital Fund will address critical needs for the mountain- purchasing equipment and funding the infrastructure projects vital for the mountain’s sustained operation and growth.
