The TMEF Celebration Party at Howelsen Lodge was a great start to 2018. Nearly 100 people attended the event, and we raised $1,000 for trails. We enjoyed bringing together our valued donors and partner organizations including the USFS, Rocky Mountain Youth Corps, Friends of Wilderness, Yampatika, Routt County Riders, Bike Town USA and City of Steamboat Springs. It was a great opportunity to chat and learn about these organization and the programs, projects and plans that are making trails, recreation and backcountry experiences available to people of all ages in our region.

Thank you to everyone who attended and businesses, including Mountain Tap, Storm Peak Brewing, SmartWool, Honey Stinger, Big Agnes and Ski and Bike Kare for donating ales and door prizes for the event. We’re looking forward to another successful year of raising funds and awareness for trail maintenance in our communities.

 

Yampatika talking about their programming. They offered “trail themed” games for young and young at heart at the event. Yampatika’s mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through education.

The City of Steamboat Springs manages miles and miles of our favorite trails. Go enjoy the ski trails at Ski Free Sunday’s all winter.

Friends of Wilderness showcased a slideshow of all the trail maintenance work they do locally. Thank you!

Did you know Rocky Mountain Youth Corps completed the trail maintenance work on the first grant from the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund at Fish Creek Falls?

Erin Early, Helen Beall, and Julie McFadden talking about the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund. Erin and Julie are Trail Fund Ambassadors.

BikeTown USA joined the fun and has contributed to the TMEF through their annual CycleArt event.

The United States Forest Service encouraged participants to get involved and make comments about proposed new trails in the area.

Routt County Riders has always been a strong supporter of the TMEF through the sales of local maps and by the trail works days they offer. Thank you!
