According to an August 6 post on their Facebook page, The Friends of Squaw Mountain have announced they have received 501(c)(3) status. As a result, donations to the non-profit organization are now tax exempt.
Located near the shore of Moosehead Lake, Big Squaw Mountain underwent many ownership and management changes during its first four decades of operation. After multiple seasons of closure, The Friends of Squaw Mountain organized and secured an operational lease of the mountain for the 2012-13 season.
With the help of significant donations and volunteer labor, the group has been able to rebuild and operate the lower mountain at Squaw Mountain for the past two seasons. More recently, snowguns have been acquired to allow the ski area to operate without natural snowfall.
