BETA maintains over 100 miles of trails for ski touring and mountain biking in the region, and dedicated BETA volunteers are responsible for much of this work on an annual basis.
You can get involved by volunteering at a trail day or joining a local BETA trail crew for weekly maintenance projects. Click on the links below for more info about the work days, or Contact Us to learn more.
Always come to trail days prepared for a day in the woods with sturdy footwear, food, water and proper clothing for the weather conditions at the work location.
BETA provides all hand tools and refreshing post-work beverages (and usually coffee and baked goods to start the day!). Extra hand tools like rakes, saws and loppers are always appreciated but not required.
