Wanna step up your game and improve Tahoe’s trails? Well, here’s your chance…get formal training from TAMBA and the Forest Service to remove logs, lead work crews, create rigging solutions, and build trails. We don’t have dates for every one of these trainings, but we’re working hard to make them available to everyone who wants the training. Here’s a list
– First Aid and CPR: required for all subsequent training, scheduled for 23 March, 8:30am to 4:30pm at the Blue Angel Cafe (upstairs), South Lake Tahoe
– Sawyer Certification and Recertification: 27 and 28 April, 8:30 to 4:30 both days in Meyers, CA. Registration: https://www.tfaforms.com/4710838
– Crew Leader Training: 4 and 5 May. The details of who will lead this training and where it will be held depends on how many people want the training.
– Rigging Training: Learn to move large rock. 8 and 9 June in South Lake Tahoe.
– Trail Building Class: A single day in July likely at Sky Tavern near Mount Rose.
Please reserve your chair for any or all of these trainings today by emailing Scott Brown at email@example.com with “spring training” in the title. Indicate which trainings you are interested in. All classes are free for TAMBA members.
So what did TAMBA do for you and your community this year?…uh, a lot! We finished the Incline Flume, Red House Flume, and Lake View trails. We created the new Tamarack and Stanford Rock trails.We added a gonzo optional route on the Stinger Trail and adopted a new section of Powerline Trail. TAMBA has started work on an ambitious project connecting Angora Lakes to Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake, called the Lily Lake Trail. Finally, TAMBA did maintenance on numerous trails including Corral and Toad’s. And we had fun doing it.
BUILD RIDE RESPECT
———–There’s still trail work opportunities continuing this year. Please click here or go to our facebook page for more.————
Next year we’ll continue adding miles to the Stanford Rock Trail, we’ll do our best to get the Lily Lake Trail rideable, and we might work on connecting the Powerline Trail to Railroad Grade. So cancel the cross training membership and volunteer for trail work days!
Construction on both Stanford Rock and Lily Lake Trails are continuing until snow prevents further work. Both projects could benefit from your help. Check our events calendar or our Facebook page for the latest. Below is a promotional video on the Lily Lake Trail work
Our final trail day is this Saturday on lower Corral. Please meet at the Toads parking area on Fountain Place Road at 9am. We’ll work until 1pm then break for lunch, beer, and prizes. Please wear long pants, long sleeves, eye protection, gloves, and a helmet. BRING YOUR BIKE to ride to the end work area because the bridge is still not open.
In addition, at 5pm, The Hangar in South Lake Tahoe is hosting Bikes & Beers to benefit TAMBA. Join us for the grand opening of a kid’s balance bike track, beer, free popcorn, a movie, and raffle of a Specialized Bicycles RipRock 24″ mountain bike valued at over $500. We’ll party until 10pm.
