We have formed a non-profit corporation called North London Mill Preservation, Inc. Our mission is to plan, finance, restore, and manage the historic structures of the North London Mill site, repurposing them as backcountry accommodations.

We are applying for a $35,000 grant from History Colorado to restore the North London Office for use as a backcountry hut, for which we need to raise 25% in matching funds ($8,750). Your contribution is tax-deductible. We are also applying for grant funding from other sources such as South Park National Heritage Area, Park County Conservation Trust Fund, and others.
Contributions today will be applied toward future membership benefits when the historic structures are restored and functioning as backcountry huts. A donation in any amount will be greatly appreciated. You can purchase donations in multiples on PayPal, so you can give any amount you choose.

A contribution of $45 will get you a night in the North London Office when it is completed - get a night for two for $85. A donation of $125 will get you a night for two plus a Mosquito Pass hat!

Spring Update

We have raised almost $3,000 toward our goal of $8,750 in matching funds, 25% of a $35,000 grant from History Colorado! The grant deadline is October 1, 2017, which gives us plenty of time to raise the remaining funds.
On Friday, April 14, we held a fundraiser at the Alma Town Hall, where we raised over $1,000! Around 100 people attended to hear about our plans, and to check out Fritz Sperry's discussion of backcountry skiing and safety. Many thanks go out to Nancy Comer, Alma Town Administrator; to Fritz and Allison Seymour for designing the posters; to Upslope Brewing for the beer; to Wynn Miller for all his help, and to all our sponsors for supplying swag for the raffle, and to everyone who came out that night for your support.  

The skiing was great this spring - got in several tours in March and April, including 3 days with Backcountry Magazine, which included a trip up London Mountain and down the iconic 'Wave.' 

February 9, 2017 Tour

On Thursday, February 9, we took a ski-tour up to the North London Mill and to the upper terminal of the historic tramway. 

We did a thorough snowpack analysis, which, on that day, revealed an acceptable level of stability. 

Many thanks to our guide, backcountry-guru Fritz Sperry, who wrote the book on Making Turns in the Ten Mile and Mosquito Range. Check out his website

We are now actively fundraising for the restoration of the North London Office, which we hope to have functioning as a backcountry hut as early as the fall of 2018. We are applying for a $35,000 grant from History Colorado - but will require 25% matching funds ($8,750). Your contributions are tax-deductible. Please consider making a donation today, using our PayPal link above. A contribution at the Gold level ($125) will get you a Mosquito Pass hat! Of course, larger contributions are welcome - please contact us if you would like to become a Benefactor of North London Preservation Inc.
