First, the 5-cent summary of what this is all about.
- Bell Helmets is giving away $33K to build a new trail.
- WNYMBA submitted a killer application and now we are one of four east coast finalists!
- If we win, Holiday Valley will kick in some funds to make this 2-mile trail even better. The trail will always be open to the public to ride for free.
- WNYMBA put together a video to describe the project and why everyone should vote for us!
- The trail is a 2-mile downhill flow trail from Spruce Lake to the ski lodge. It will be full of berms, rollers, switchbacks and other fun stuff, that takes machines and money to build.
- This trail will kick start a much larger trail system at Holiday Valley. It's not just about this 2-mile trail.
- The winner is determined by popular vote alone!
