Eagle Mount--Great Falls
Eagle Mount is a non-profit organization that has been serving Great Falls and the surrounding communities since November of 1990. Eagle Mount offers exciting programs that allow people of all ages with physical, emotional, developmental, behavioral and/or mental challenges to explore recreation and take on new adventures based on their abilities, not their disabilities.
The Eagle Mount ski mission is to permanently and positively enhance the lives of people with disabilities through the activity of skiing. This is done by challenging limitations through personal achievement, providing a doorway of opportunity whereby individuals may strive to realize their potential, and enabling families and friends to participate with and share in the skiing experience.
All programs rely heavily on volunteers, donors, and the local community to help the Eagle Mount participants overcome challenges and share in the love of recreation.
Bill Macfadden, the founder of Eagle Mount--Great Falls, and George Willett, the owner of Showdown Montana, created this great partnership with a simple handshake over 20 years ago. They both share the commitment to bring skiing to those who might not have the opportunity without adaptive means.
Adaptive Ski Coordinator: Stephanie Richardson
Executive Director: Deb Sivumaki
Board President: Gaines McFadden
Founder: Bill Macfadden
WHO WE SERVE
Eagle Mount’s services are available to individuals with a doctor-diagnosed disability -- physical, emotional, developmental, behavioral and/or mental.
VOLUNTEERS & DONORS
Eagle Mount relies heavily on volunteers and the local community to run our programs. Each program provides a fun way to gain volunteer experience. Volunteers will receive specialized training, develop great friendships, get some exercise, and share the love of recreational activities with a child or adult while helping them to overcome challenges. Businesses and individuals also provide their support through the use of their facilities, equipment, and donations. Eagle Mount--Great Falls does not receive government funding and is truly blessed by local support!
