Trail Group Unites Ski Town

14 02 2008

Non-profit trail groups all over the country, like DATA, are working to protect access to public lands and trails in their communities.

“The Mammoth Lakes Town Council got so excited that it took a 2007 tour of peer resorts, such as Sun Valley, Idaho, and Whistler, British Columbia, which have had trail-management nonprofit groups in place for as long as 20 years. “We are competing with other destinations that have these very comprehensive systems, and we sometimes lose market share,” said Danna Stroud, director of tourism and recreation for the town.

“We want people to get out of their cars and enjoy the beauty of nature,” Bear said. The trails group is “planning for that growth so that they have an accessible community and one (where) the trails are kept out of the most environmentally sensitive areas.” The group has solicited more than $350,000 for planning.”
