You Can Self-Fund TWO new Trails with GiveBig TODAY!

We've got just $35,000 to go to self-fund these trails! Today is more than a big day--it's a HUGE day. Members have already raised $25,000--and that's just at 8AM! You can be a part of an Evergreen FIRST: your support self-funds the incredible subalpine loop trail at Alpine Baldy! And we're just $35,000 from making these TWO new EPIC Skykomish trails a reality--help us keep the momentum going by Giving Big NOW!  Your GiveBig donation today ensures completion of the Alpine Baldy loop trail — a majestic 10-mile subalpine loop right above Skykomish!  Your support also pays to flag the proposed Maloney Rock trails to begin environmental reviews for the State’s largest shuttleable downhill trail network!  You’re making these trails happen—the Alpine Baldy permit may expire and we could be several years out before we get a chance like this again. That’s why we need YOU now.   Build These Trails Today!

A Rare Chance: You Can Fund TWO New Trails Today

Agreements are in place. Crews are on the ground. We just need you.  No exaggeration. We have a rare opportunity to self-fund TWO projects in the Town of Skykomish—but only with your support now (seriously). You can make this happen. We have until the snow returns to complete a 10-mile sub alpine loop at Alpine Baldy, and to design and flag new trails at Maloney Rock – which has potential to offer the largest shuttleable vertical DH trail in Washington State!   Permits expire and weather windows close—if we don’t (beat the fall snow and) fund these TWO new trails now—we may lose them—or be forced to wait years before we have this unique opportunity again. Give Big now to help make Skykomish an epic trail town! GiveBig Today

Did you eat a post-ride cheeseburger? Why your Legislators want to know.

When you ride your bike, you make an impact. Whether it’s that post-ride grub or grabbing a spare tube at a town bike shop—you have a positive effect on a local community! That’s a great thing, but in order to show our sport’s impact to businesses and elected officials—we need you to help us by answering a short survey about how you ride.
