Michael Sher has dedicated countless hours and immeasurable effort to the cause of restoring Burke Mountain Vermont to its former glory in a time of great uncertainty for not only the mountain but the many local businesses which depend on its visitors to sustain the local economy. He has sacrificed to ensure that Burke Mountain will thrive in a way that is both sustainable to the community and tenable for decades to come.
Michael's mission is the transparent and communally beneficial transferrence of Burke Mountain from temporary receivership to ownership by a business entity with a sustainable plan which will benefit not only the mountain as a business but also the local community.
Michael's mission to support Burke Mountain has led to community enrichment through the raising and disbursement of funds for special programs including lift renovation and financial aid to community ski programs. Michael has been instrumental in ensuring that the community has maintained a seat at the table during a time of unfathomable uncertainty for Burke Mountain.
Michael's passion for helping others pales only to his determination to do so. Michael has been relentless in his pursuit of equitable solutions to the vast array of problems facing Burke Mountain.
An influx of $50,000 would allow Friends of Burke Mountain to build upon its existing infrastructure, grow their community outreach efforts, and further their mission of representing key stakeholders during the receivership and helping fulfill the vision of Burke as a thriving four-season resort for the benefit of the community.
Michael has sacrificed more for less recognition than any man I've had the pleasure of knowing personally. It would be my honor to play some small role in bringing that attention to him and his cause.
