If you’re reading this post, then chances are you’re an avid user of the trails in the Crested Butte area. Here’s some events that are happening this week relating to those trails that you love!
Trailhead Awareness Day
Last Saturday, we held our first Trailhead Awareness Day in conjunction with SnoTrackers at Kebler Pass trailhead. We talked to passersby about the importance of multi-use areas, the need to be respectful of other users, and how user conflict can be reduced. Those that talked to us were offered hot chocolate and Third Bowl donuts in exchange! We also raised money for both groups in donations and memberships.
This coming Saturday March 4th, we will be doing a similar Trailhead Awareness Day. But, this time, it will be held at Gothic / Snodgrass Trailhead in conjunction with CBMBA. We will continue to offer hot chocolate and donuts for those willing to chat about our cause. We hope to see all of you there!
Cement Creek Winter Trails Fundraiser
CBMBA has taken on a lot this winter. Their first success was when the Forest Service awarded them with a permit to groom certain proposed areas for fat-bikers and other users. The second, is that they have worked hard to maintain some of these proposed areas.
One of these areas is Cement Creek Road, which is a multi-use corridor. Grooming features a special cross-country track alongside another meant for snowmobiles. This sets a great example of how different user groups can play in the same area, and enjoy the experience too.
But, CBMBA needs your help. All this grooming is pretty darned expensive. So, please attend their fundraiser this Thursday, March 2nd, at Tully’s in CB South!
We hope to see you there!
