\ History and Mission - Mt. Holiday

History and Mission




Mt. Holiday was formed in 1949 when a group of local businessmen obtained permission to construct a ski run on state-owned land. The area was created using volunteers, prison labor, services, and donations.

In 1985, the area was purchased by Warren Brosch and his wife Sue. The Brosch’s added two chairlifts, a tube run, and a terrain park. After Warren’s death in 1999, Sue Brosch placed the area up for sale.

In response to the concern that the area would be sold and developed, a volunteer group formed Mt. Holiday, Inc., a nonprofit corporation to purchase the area. The group set a goal to raise $1.5 million to acquire the area, refurbish it and open it to the public.
