Summer Makes the Skier

It is what every athletic trainer will tell you...."summer makes the skier".

Lucky for you MVSTA has a number of summer events to help you increase your fitness for next winter. These events include the
Sunflower Marathon and Relay event
celebrating it's 31st year on May 7th. Following this is our very popular, extremely family-friendly
Mazama 5k & 10Kk Trail Run
on May 28th. In August we take 250 lucky runners on one of the most scenic, high elevation runs in the United States, the Cutthroat Classic on August 27th and cycling enthusiasts know not to miss our 25th annual Fall Bike Festival September 30-October 2.

Just as your summer activities establish your fitness level for skiing, the same is true for the ski trails. While MVSTA is best know for our incredible ski grooming, the success of our ski trails lies in the work we do in the summer. At MVSTA, our year-round nonprofit work focuses on the development and promotion of our non-motorized trails. To establish healthy ski trails, the work begins in the summer. This summer we will be working on a number of trail projects aimed at not only enhancing the summer recreational experience, but also preparing the trails for another great ski season in 2012.

We would like to extend a big thank you to all the individuals who supported MVSTA this winter. The majority of MVSTA's budget is financed by ski trail pass sales, which come in three short months of winter. Your purchase of a MVSTA ski pass (day, season or lifetime) supports this kind of year-round recreation and trail maintenance on our world-class trails. Thank you!
