Whaleback Mountain needs all the help it can get. They are having some kind of a 5K on Nov 2nd - there's a Facebook page for it, I don't know if there is anything else.
It is a non-profit now, right? It seems the way some of these smaller hills will continue to be around is by either crowd sourcing the real estate (giving the investors passes) or by running them as non-profits. Locals should want to support their backyard ski area knowing that it isn't being operated at a profit. Breaking even can keep the place operating for years while running it for a loss cannot do so.
