Each one of us is a passionate trail enthusiast. • Provide free spring, summer, and fall trail access at 11 Methow Valley trailheads. • Manage and market a trail system that generates $12.4 million per year for the local economy. • Have the support of over 1,200 businesses, organizations, and individuals who believe in our Trails for Life mission. It is with everyone’s support that we can provide this incredible trail system for skiers today– and for generations to come. We hope you can join us on the trails this winter!
