Friends of The River Fund Maine,

Master of The Mountain returns for what is sure to be an epic challenge on Sunday, March 14th. This isn't just any ordinary ski race; but you already knew that. Registration is officially live, so be sure and secure your spot, as space is limited this year.

Just like last year, the challenge begins before you click into your skis or strap into your board. We're bringing back fundraising prizes and giveaways, with the top fundraiser locking in their 2021/2022 winter plans with a Sunday River season pass.

With the fundraising and generosity from Master of The Mountain 2020, The River Fund Maine:

  • Provided internet connectivity to local youth learning remotely through the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Sent a SAD 44 student to college with a $20,000 per year scholarship, renewable for four years, and we'll award our second scholar this May. 
  • Hosted the Designed Thinking Workshop, focused on community wellness, fostering collaboration between Telstar High School and Gould Academy students.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch Master of The Mountain. Our initial plans for the inaugural race in March of 2020 were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’ve been working tirelessly with the Sunday River Resort team on how we could safely execute this race. We’ve worked to eliminate contact points, staff timing stations to ensure social distancing, and move as many elements of the registration and celebration to virtual platforms, ensuring the highest level of safety for our participants.” says Tanguay-Collins.
“The Master of the Mountain is a unique event, and not just for the strategy that each competitor must use to be successful” says Sunday River’s Director of Events and Competitions, Greg Towle. “While we have been able to safely host competitions this winter amid the pandemic, the distanced nature of Master of the Mountain allows us to host this event and help raise money for a great cause.”

Through your efforts and generosity, we're able to provide support to the Sunday River community. Thank you all for your continued support, and we'll see you at the start!

Be Well,

Noah Tanguay-Collins
