Last week’s snow and continued cold temperatures in the North Country seems like good news for skiers looking to take a few more turns this spring.
Yet only a few resorts have extended the season, with most areas still planning to shut down at their normal closing dates, some as soon as this weekend, representatives said.
The saga of Black Mountain of Maine is turning to the good news side. The Maine Winter Sports Center, which abruptly closed the community ski area a month ago, seems to have found a solution.
UPDATE: 6/28: Brian Gagnon, CEO of Boston-based BMG Partners, a "problem-solving company," said at a public meeting of about 100 people last night he had launched the "Friends of Black Mountain of Maine Fund" at Crowdrise, an online fundraising platform. The fund had raised nearly $5,000 of it's $55,000 goal the first day. That money, if raised, will keep the resort functioning until ski season.
