In case you weren’t on Facebook for the last month here’s the scoop. TAMBA applied for the Bell Built Grant in February 2013 to build out all of the proposed features on Corral Trail in South Lake Tahoe. In April, after a long Facebook voting contest we lost by just 1 stinking percent to some bike park in VT. But don’t despair we are moving forward to get this model project with the US Forest Service built!
We are raising the money ourselves to get this project done right. The money will be used to rent machinery, buy tools, feed and fuel our volunteer trail builders and hopefully even hire a few pro trail builders.

Wondering what you can do to help build Corral Trail even though we didn’t win the grant? Help Erik and Dan (from Salesforce) reach the 15k goal! The super AMAZING at people Salesforce Foundation will match donations dollar for dollar up to 15K – 30k total!
So your $5 tax deductible donation turns into $10, or your $50 donation turns into $100, or your $1,000 donation turns into $2,000. You get the picture, now let’s get Corral built!

Bijou Bike Park
The snow has finally come to Tahoe but we haven’t stopped thinking about mountain biking. Take a look at a couple of our projects in the works on the new Project page. We’ll be working on these and more projects over the winter so check back often and get involved if you want to see a bike park get built and new trails to ride. In the meantime break out the skis and boards because winter has made a comeback.
Powerlines Trail - Dec 24th, 2011
Record dry conditions have kept many Tahoe trails open well in the winter. People are pushing further out each week going to Star Lake, Toads, etc. Let us know what you encounter out there. Until the snow comes go out and ski some groomers in the morning, then grab your bike and ride in the afternoon.
Trails conditions are up-to-date here.
