Dig Days

Dig Days

Tread work ranges from clearing water bars and removing brake bumps to building jumps and berms, depending on the project.

These days generally last about half a day and are located closer to town (Marshall, Rattlesnake, Sentinel, Dean Stone), sometimes scheduled on evenings.

There’s often lighter work like brushing or lopping available for those who want to be involved but prefer not to dig.

Alpine Clearing

On clearing days, we generally set up an early morning shuttle and then ride a trail point-to-point, clearing all trees along the way.  These are long but extremely rewarding days.

We always need swampers (swampers remove smaller trees with a hand saw and help the sawyer pull cut logs off the trail) and brushers (using weedwhackers or loppers), so if you’re not a sawyer you can still be an integral part of the clearing days.

Chainsaw Training

We train and certify our volunteer sawyers with a USFS-approved course. It's a great way to develop your skills and safety while giving back to the trails. Certification is required to saw on our workdays. Group trainings were paused due to Covid, but may return later in 2021
