Backcountry skiing in Crested Butte.
Backcountry skiing in Crested Butte.
Backcountry skiers often use snowmobiles to venture deeper up the Slate River Road to a deeper and safer snowpack.
We are striving to preserve winter travel access for all users groups in the drainages that encompass the Gunnison Valley.

Our efforts include, but are not limited to:

  • Outreach Education – We educate people about the new OSV Rule and what it means for Gunnison Valley. Additionally, we educate backcountry users about other user groups.
  • Code of Conduct – We are developing a code of conduct for winter backcountry travel.
  • Researching, Tirelessly – The situation at hand is indeed complex and we are pulling together our resources to obtain the best information possible to keep you, and us, informed.
  • Communication – We communicate with National Forest and government officials to advocate for our cause. We also encourage communication between user groups.
  • Data Collection – Collecting data in efforts to support our cause.

As we grow, and identify more needs, our efforts will continue to expand.
