About Us

We are a passionate team focused on helping our community hill thrive

The Friends of Mount Sima Society (FMSS) grew out of a group of dedicated individuals intent on opening the hill for the winter of 2013-2014. With this dream realized, the Board of Directors and many key volunteers continue to work toward creating a multi-year sustainable business plan for the hill.
