End your Tuesdays Volunteering in the Sky

Over the course of five Tuesday evenings starting June 19th, volunteers are needed to help reroute a section of trail on Sky Mountain Park. Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers, along with project partners Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, Aspen Parks and Open Space, Town of Snowmass Village and RFMBA will be coordinating the project to help improve Skyline Ridge Trail.

Volunteer efforts will reroute the Skyline Ridge Trail out of a wet meadow and onto a more sustainable location and alignment. For as many users as Sky Mountain Park sees every season, it’s important that this trail be rerouted so as to not cause further damage and erosion. 

Simply put, there are few better ways to end a Tuesday afternoon than with some trail work atop Sky Mountain Park with great views of Snowmass Village and Mt. Daly.

Dinner will be included after every Tuesday evening. For the last 23 years, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers has been committed to engaging the community in trail and conservation projects from Aspen to Parachute. Public projects with RFOV are designed to actively engage our community in the stewardship of our public lands.

For anyone who wants to get involved, whether you’ve never attended a project before or are a current volunteer, you’re invited to join in on this project. RFOV provides the tools, resources, and trained crew leaders to ensure that everyone has a rewarding experience, no matter how new to trail projects you are. And, as even more incentive, volunteers are entered to win prizes including a CIMA Cycles Highlands bike worth $4,500 thanks to the partnership of CIMA Cycles, Ute City Cycles, and RFMBA.

If you’re looking for something a little less physical, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers is also looking for volunteers to help with recruiting, committees, and more. There are so many ways to give back to our trails and public lands – and you’ll get to be outside and in the sunshine while giving back.
