Two weeks into a fundraiser to save Lost Valley ski area, $10,375 has been raised by the Friends of Lost Valley's Online Fundraiser. The deadline for at least $50,000 is 24 days away.

Located in Auburn, Maine, Lost Valley has been in operation since the 1961-62 season. The 240 vertical foot ski area features two chairlifts, snowmaking, and night skiing. The current ownership group took control of the area in 2004 and has incurred ten consecutive seasons of losses. Following the 2013-14 season, Lost Valley's ownership announced ski operations were in jeopardy.

According to area ownership, $50,000 in funds is needed in order to have one chairlift operational for the 2014-15, while $100,000 will open both lifts.

The deadline for donations is October 17, 2014. If the $50,000 goal is not achieved, Lost Valley will close for ski operations and the funds generated will be transferred to non profits such as Auburn Ski Association and Central Maine Adaptive Sports.
