Toad’s is Clear!

July 19, 2017

TAMBA cleared 13 trees from the Armstrong Pass Trail, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and down Toad’s Wild Ride on Monday, July 17th. There remain a couple patches of snow, but the trails are now free of obstructing logs! Thanks go to the Forest Service and the Rim Trail folks who allowed us to do this maintenance. Happy Trails!

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.

Lower Corral Trail Day Recap

June 12, 2017
 

On Sunday, June 11th, more than 60 volunteers braved the threat of snow to help build new table tops jumps, roller and berms on the Lower Corral Trail (and do some maintenance on Railroad Grade and upper Corral). It turned out to be a gorgeous day and the snow held off until he afternoon helping to soak in the build. We extend our deep appreciation to the Forest Service LTBMU trails crew for doing the heavy lifting with Jacob running the trail dozer all day. Also a big thank-you to Chimayo for providing an outstanding barbeque lunch! Work will continue out here until June 22.
