At Share the Slate, our mission is to protect winter access and promote the shared interests of all user groups within the public lands of Gunnison County.

Share the Slate strives to:

  • protect the shared interests of all winter user groups, motorized and non-motorized, within our public lands
  • foster a sense of community through education and open dialogue
  • protect our community by developing strategies for conflict management
  • preserve and celebrate the beauty of all public lands within Gunnison County
  • ensure balanced winter access for all user groups, motorized and non-motorized, within the Slate River Drainage and other National Forest drainages
  • promote a culture of compassion and compromise that honors the Gang of 9 Decision and all those who have shared these lands before us
  • ensure that our public lands remain public and that no one group or individual, no amount of influence or financial gain, can strip any user group of their rights to recreate on public lands
