Big Rock:

Big Rock ski area is a small, family-friendly mountain located in Mars Hill. If you’ve ever skied there, you know the lift system is one like Saddleback before it closed. The main lift up the mountain is a double chair which is slow. The lifts around the base area have higher capacity than their own main lift up the mountain. Help the people of Mars Hill grow their mountain and bring it up to current lift standards. To learn more about their efforts and to donate, click the link below.
