Weekday Trail Team Accomplishments

June 16, 2017

Led by Scott Brown and Bob Ward, the weekday trail team stays under the radar, but quietly accomplishes big things with only a few people. Trail obstructing logs mysteriously disappear?…probably the weekday team. Nasty erosion from the record precip this year quickly mitigated?…yea, the weekday team. Puddles on Railroad Grade drowning you out? Just call the weekday team. We’ve worked on nearly every trail in South Lake that’s not snow covered to improve your riding experience. We’ve cleared around 40 logs, created new trail alignments, and regraded several trails. If you have a day off during the week and want to contribute to improving your riding experience, join our email list or check out the TAMBA calendar for details on where which days we work and where we’ll be.

June and July Trail Building!

There are many opportunities to help improve and extend multi-use trails in the Tahoe Basin. See the highlights below or go to our calendar for more information.

[] Weekday work in South Lake on Monday 26 June, Friday 30 June, and Monday 3 July, Scott and Bob work half a day on the new Angora Ridge Trail that overlooks Fallen Leaf Lake. Start time is 8:30. Consult our calendar for more details.

[] Weekend work in South Lake on Sunday 9 July, we will continue creating six miles of new trail that traverses Angora Ridge and overlooks Fallen Leaf Lake. Start time 9am. Check back for more details. We will have many more weekend and weekday trail days in the coming months.

Dear Ms. Muse-Meyer

I would like to express my support for the Kirkwood Mountain Resort Bike Park Expansion proposal. The Kirkwood resort provides high quality recreation trails for all kinds of mountain bike enthusiasts. Kirkwood is a leader in utilizing IMBA’s sustainable trails guidelines which create long lasting trails that shed water and reduce erosion. The addition of new trails within the resort will also spread out the use on trails in the surrounding area. As outdoor recreation of all types becomes more popular, we must keep up with providing more areas for everyone to safely recreate. I hope you find the Kirkwood expansion project to be beneficial in social, environmental, and economic areas. I look forward to your consideration and support of this project.

Sincerely,
