We hired Mike Rutter as our first-ever, full-time Trails Program Director, allowing us to invest in expanding trail capacity and take advantage of opportunities that arise such as Maryland Mountain’s Fast Money. We professionalized trail building with your donations!
Mike Rutter built Fast Money, the new all-level downhill bike trail at Maryland Mountain in collaboration with the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA).
Worked with Boulder County to help reopen most of Heil Valley Ranch after the devastating Calwood fire.
Added bike optimized features to Picture Rock, Springbrook Loop, Antelope, Community Ditch, and Betasso Link while hosting 36 volunteer trail events.
Hosted 66 group rides and 43 skills clinics and expanded our programming to reach underrepresented groups including women, LatinX, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and youth.
Fundraise for and build Double Down, a new black/double black trail, at Maryland Mountain in collaboration with COMBA.
Work with Boulder County to ensure that all trails at Heil Valley Ranch — including Wapiti, Overland Loop, Schoolhouse Loop and the new Schoolhouse Skills Area — open in 2022.
Connect Nederland to Winter Park via singletrack by finishing the new Toll trail for a Fall 2022/Spring 2023 opening.
BMA and Mike Rutter will create a trail building academy to train the next generation of volunteer trail builders and crew leaders.
Ensure the mountain bike community is heard when the U.S. Forest Services studies Lefthand OHV.
Advocate for early opening of the North Sky trail; a new Little Raven singletrack extension; a new Hall to Heil singletrack connection; and replacing Greenbelt Plateau road with singletrack.
