Many people have been asking how they can help out residents of Vermont and New Hampshire who have been affected by the flooding. Hurricane Irene brought historic flooding upon people very similar to us in Park City. Residents of mountain towns and even our sister resorts Killington and Pico Mountain have a lot of work ahead of them to fix the damage.
Killington Resort's blog has been posting updates on the status of the damages and restoration efforts underway. Roads leading in and out of the region are still closed, a few of their lodging properties and buildings have sustained water damage, however very little damage was done above 2500 feet. As of now, Killington plans to open for the 2011-12 winter season on schedule.
If you feel compelled to help in any form, we hope that these links will help you direct you to the appropriate resource.
Blurt has an awesome list of how you can donate or volunteer as well as additional resources for those affected.
