THE FIRE

On September 16th,  The Loft and attached food/service/lodge area at Mad River Mountain caught fire which resulted in a total loss.  This loss also included the ski patrol room where supplies and equipment were severely damaged or lost.  The Mad River Mountain resort has insurance that is expected to recover these losses and we will open this season with equipment and supplies that we need to provide exceptional services to guests of the Mad River Mountain Ski Resort.

The Mad River Mountain Ski Patrol has created a GoFundMe account for those that would like to help us with our continued training and/or educating our members.  www.gofundme.com/madriverskipatrol The funds will be used for any educational expenses or training equipment that we may need going forward after this tragic event.  These funds will not be used on items that will be covered by insurance, or items that are considered part of the ski area operations.

The Mad River Mountain Ski Patrol truly appreciates the overwhelming support and words of encouragement after the devastating fire.  Our membership has really pulled together and is doing a great job of getting ready for the upcoming ski season.
