a_burgeror you know you could do it the normal way like MRG and actually sell shares that have value and give you a say in how the mountain is run... but i guess "limited edition" skis are cool too.
FrontFundr isn't kickstarter, it's equity funding, you get shares in the company you're "funding".
"But that’s not all. In addition to the equity you purchase, based on your investment level you’ll also be given additional rewards sure to appeal to ski and snowboard enthusiasts (take a look at the list breakdown) from custom, limited edition skis and snowboards; to lift tickets, season passes; and even overnight stays on new mountaintop cabins." - Quote from funding page
In fairness, 1.5 million isn't a huge amount of money for a medium sized ski hill. For that reason, it seems highly unlikely that any participant of this fundraiser will have voting shares.
