ABOUT PEMBINA GORGE FOUNDATION and FROST FIRE Frost Fire Ski Resort & Amphitheatre was purchased by Pembina Gorge Foundation on June 19th , 2017. The Pembina Gorge Foundation incorporated with the State of ND in January of 2017 to purchase Frost Fire and expand on the traditional programs offered; being skiing, snowboarding and summer theatre performances, as well address hospitality needs of our patrons. The mission of the Pembina Gorge Foundation is to preserve and enhance the experience of the Pembina Gorge while connecting people to positive, life changing experiences. The Foundation develops and supports historical, cultural, education, natural, interpretive and recreational opportunities in the Gorge. Judith and the late Richard Johnson opened Frost Fire Christmas Day 1976. They had a dream to see the Walhalla area developed in such a way that it would provide an enhanced recreational and trade area, while protecting and preserving the pristine wonder and beauty of the Pembina Gorge. The PGF Board of directors’ vision is to build off and expand the Johnsons’ vision for the Gorge. It was determined, if the capital support can be raised for the purchase of Frost Fire, deferred maintenance, capital improvements and an endowment to provide scholarships and support operations, then purchasing Frost Fire would be viable. It was most important to keep Frost Fire open as an amenity to the Rendezvous Region. Fire Up for Frost Fire capital campaign has raised over $2 million from lead gifts to date. The total capital campaign goal exceeds $6 million.
