Mission Statement

The VVMTA's mission is to maintain, educate, advocate for, and build sustainable non-motorized soft surface trails while conserving the natural environment of Eagle County and our public lands.

Organization History

The VVMTA manages trail advocacy programs, coordinates and trains volunteers, educates outdoor recreational users, organizes events, and contributes its talents, guidance and time to support local land managers in various soft surface trail initiatives. Our vision is the creation of a sustainable multi-use soft surface trail network connecting communities and neighborhoods from Vail Pass to Basalt.

In 2011, a group of locals sharing a passion for trails realized a need for organized representation and care for soft surface trails in the Vail Valley. The number of locals and visitors drawn to the Vail Valley's trails was constantly increasing and causing increased use and demand. With that, they decided talk was cheap and formed the Vail Valley Mountain Bike Association (VVMBA).

Their passion for building and maintaining sustainable soft surface trails has led to hundreds of miles of trail maintenance, the West Avon Preserve, the soon to be opened Everkrisp Trail, thousands of hours of volunteer trail maintenance through the Adopt A Trail program, and most recently the Wildlife Trail Ambassador program.

Beginning Wednesday, April 10, the VVMBA is undergoing a name change to better fit its mission, vision, and programs that we are already successfully performing. We are pleased to announce our new name - Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance (VVMTA).

"The Ride Center designation would not have been achieved without the leadership and work of local and area residents," said Mayor Jennie Fancher. "They carried the vision and now, over several years of committed effort, have successfully brought to the Vail Valley this highly-sought after recognition. On behalf of the Avon Town Council, we thank these tireless volunteers."

"Our community coming together, finding this common interest and donating money to it, that's a testament to private champions of the program and the VVMBA whose carried a lot of water on this," Aaron Mayville, District Ranger - Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District, White River National Forest
