The Birdcage deck is progressing, as is the foliage, in anticipation of Mad River’s upcoming Green & Gold weekend Oct 6-7. Come on up and see how all the generous donations to the campaign have gotten the mountain in fantastic shape for the upcoming season!
Only two weeks are left for shareholders to double their donations to the Preserve Our Paradise Campaign! Gifts can be pledged over a four-year period. We've secured $150,000 in matching funds to support this initiative, and already raised $130,000 towards the match. Let's show support for our mountain by raising the final $20,000 in the next two weeks! To donate, visit www.preservemadriver.com/shareholder no later than October 6.
The new deck on the Birdcage is taking shape! The deck has been framed and mostly covered. Still to come are the railing, new stairs, and the energy efficient entrance. We’ll keep you posted on the progress of this exciting project!
The campaign-funded trail crew has wrapped up for the season after working on more than 15 trails, several glades, and the work road. Crews have been busy cutting back growth in selected areas that has encroached on our trails over the last two decades. Keeping our trails and glades in great shape is a perfect use of donation dollars!
The long-awaited Birdcage project has started with the pouring of footings for a new wrap-around deck that will be a great place to hang out on sunny days! This is the beginning of our efforts to revitalize the Birdland area. More news coming soon!
