The Stark Mountain Foundation is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, formed to preserve and protect the environment and ecosystem of General Stark Mountain, including its recreational access and historic value, and to support programs that promote and sustain that environment for the enjoyment of present and future generations. For more on the Foundation's purpose, see the Articles of Incorporation. For information on the Foundation's governance and procedures, see the Bylaws. With natural snow, the mountain, and its skiers as its primary resources, the flanks of Stark Mountain provide an eastern skiing experience that has become unique with the passage of time over the ski area's 60+ year history. In addition, the Long Trail and numerous other trails pass over the Mountain, providing hiking and camping opportunities.
The Stark Mountain Foundation provides a way for people to help ensure that the objectives to "preserve and protect" this experience and place are achieved, and to demonstrate that a sustainable and successful model for ski area operation can be based in an environmental experience and challenge, and not in exploitation and homogenization of our ancient mountains.
Any donations made to the Stark Mountain Foundation, a 501c(3), may be tax deductible.
