Bear River Bike Park by Routt County Riders, an IMBA chapter
1) Only 1 vote per category counts (3 categories = 3 votes -> I suggest Tahoe in the Flow Trail category as it is a USFS project that could be a model for other USFS lands across the west)
2) Does not work from the mobile facebook app, please vote from a browser on a desktop, laptop, tablet or some phones.
3) If you see a white page that does not confirm a vote, please try a different browser
4) Ends Friday 4/12 midnight
Wow Steamboat 600+ votes in a day! If the community came together and voted like that for these two grants funded from money outside Steamboat, the whole community would benefit. Vote now while you are in the voting mood.
1) $5,000 for the ReTree Program by the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council
2) $30,000+ for the Bear River Bike Park by Routt County Riders, an IMBA chapter
If you have already voted, tell a friend, tell a relative, heck tell a current competitor. Someday your organization will be tied up in one of these voting grants and you will need the support of the whole Steamboat Springs community to get your project funded.

While you are at it, please help fund the Bear River Bike Park with money from Bell Helmets. We are a finalist in a national grant for a share of $100,000. We are currently in second place and have a good chance at this. We are working really hard already to fund this project and others outside of the Accommodations Tax. We already did the hard work. All it takes is a quick facebook vote.

RCR, with the help of STARS and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Little Snake Field Office, also submitted for $10,000 just yesterday through a special program the BLM is running that will benefit the back side of Emerald Mt in 2014.

We really appreciate you taking the time to vote. Please tell your friends. We closed the gap by half last weekend. Lets show Bell that this little town can compete with MUCH larger cities. Thanks for everyones help.
Anyone considering relocating to the Salt Lake City and northern Utah area (including companies) should be aware of the air quality issues. http://fox13now.com/2013/02/04/red-air-quality-in-northern-utah/
Access to ski areas is quick and easy (compared to Denver). Their trail networks are staggering (we have as much or better potential), but I personally had no interest is living there long term after experiencing the unacceptable pollution first hand. Clean air, water etc will be more and more important assets. Promote them, but please do not harm them in the process.
Many of the Steamboat Strings Trails Alliance's projects will be adaptive friendly. In addition to all of the Town Pathways & Amenity projects, we will be working to ensure that a variety of the other trails will allow everyone to experience the amazing public lands that surround Steamboat Springs ( for example: the high elevation and very scenic trails proposed on Rabbit Ears Pass - Upper West Summit Network ).
We would love to have your input to help improve these projects. You can do this by visiting the site: www.steamboatspringstrails.com and selecting a project. Each project has an area to submit comments. Thank you for your interest in the Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance's proposal.
