Whaleback Mountain Fundraising Challenge for West Side Project

Locally owned and operated Whaleback Mountain in New Hampshire continues its effort to raise additional funds for the Westside Project. This 2016 Challenge and Westside project includes - Whaleback will add a used surface lift on the lower West Side of the mountain, where one previously existed. The existing Learning Center will be reconfigured. We will also install a dedicated snowmaking loop using mostly existing infrastructure and improve the lighting on Lower Face, Blubber and Lower Ivory, all this summer & fall. This will reduce the acreage required to open from the current 25 acres to just 5 acres, meaning that we can open in 3 days of optimal temps, rather than the current 10 days it requires. This will allow us to get on snow earlier in the year and remain open throughout a terrible winter such as the one we just endured.

This challenge has been extended for 3 more weeks and here is a status update as well. To accomplish this we need to raise $100,000 from the community, in order to receive the (drumroll, please!) $200,000 Challenge Grant pledged by a pool of Whaleback supporters! Your $100,000 will cover the cost of the surface lift and installation; the $200,000 from the Challenge Grant will cover improvements to snowmaking, new lighting, required summer maintenance to the chairlift, needed machinery repairs, upkeep, operating expenses, etc.

That's right, 2:1 Match for Every Dollar of Your Gift

We are down to 3 weeks left in our Fundraising Challenge and we are at $60,480 of our $100,000 requirement to see the West Side project through to completion. The T-bar will be delivered this week and we are chomping at the bit to proceed with full engineering and permitting.

Be part of Whaleback history and consider making a tax deductible donation to your community mountain and help UVSSF continue to provide a safe, affordable and convenient snow experience for children, families and individuals. Donations can be made online at or by mailing your gift to UVSSF, 160 Whaleback Mountain Road, Enfield, NH 03748.
