The SBA & the Affordable Care Act Create Opportunities for Mt. Ashland to Survive.
Operating on a $740,000 Small Business Administration Loan after a non-season last winter Mt. Ashland are looking at the Affordable Care Act to provide grant opportunities for the Association.
In the new world of the Affordable Care Act, planning is beginning and grant opportunities are arising to enable partnerships between health care organizations and recreation providers such as Mt. Ashland.
The Mt. Ashland Association is considering ways to extend their mission into the summer and redefining themselves as part of what it means to be part of a healthy community.
Summer activities envisioned by the board include hiking, bands, dancing, a zip line and weddings. The association has taken on a consultant to share ideas with other ski areas on these same topics.
