Riding bikes on Montana Mountain is free, but running a trail crew is not. There currently is no day pass or use fee for using the trails on the mountain. Every year, the Carcross Tagish Management Corporation has to find the funding from other sources to keep the S2S program running. And while it is great that more people are coming to Carcross, the cost of keeping the trails awesome is going up.
We wanted to help. When we released SHIFT, we worked with Sport Yukon Foundation to set up a special "limited edition" trust for the Single Track To Success Program in Carcross. Through this trust we've been able to channel proceeds from film screenings and individual donations from fans and riders directly to the operations of the trail crew. All together, we helped provide over $15,000 to trail crew wages, materials, and equipment for the program.
We are now looking at new ways we can help support the S2S program into the future.
Thank you to everyone who donated to the cause.
