Donations Needed Now!



Last season our snowmobile that pulls the ginzugroomer died. Members of the grooming crew searched for a replacement snowmobile that we can afford and is durable enough to last through future seasons. We found a snowmobile that was used by  Spring Gulch trail system. This 2010 Arctic Cat Bear Cat grooming snowmobile is $4,500, plus $500 for taxes and license. The Club had set aside $2,000 as an equipment fund, so we have been able to reserve this machine until we raise the rest of the funds.


Please show your appreciation for 6 seasons of groomed trails by contributing to the new grooming snowmobile. We need this grooming sled in order to maintain the trails as we have in the past.

The West Elk Multi-Use trail are made possible by a few volunteers and donations from trail users. With your help we will have the funds raised in time for the start of winter grooming operations!


This year the voluntary membership fee is $30 per individual and $50 per couple. The voluntary membership fee is a grooming fee — not a user fee. Every dollar you donate goes toward the costs of trail maintenance and equipment that are necessary to groom trails. It’s a small price to pay for groomed trails in the back country. For one small dividend you can ensure your winter recreation fun on the West Elk trails.

Send in your voluntary membership today. And while you’re at it, please add a little extra to make life easier for our grooming crew.

West Elk Multi-Use Club thanks groomers Tod Tibbetts, Bruce Kime, Art Dahl, Eric Boley, and Todd Kupka for all their hard work and support. Our fantastic ski trails would not be possible without them!

 let_it_snow_logoWe had one big snow storm over the Thanksgiving weekend, but it takes two more to have enough of a base to open the trails.  Our volunteer groomers are busy getting the equipment  ready for the winter grooming season. Once we have enough snow they will schedule a day to pack the trails. Check back here for updates and trail conditions.

In the meantime, the West Elk trails are always open. Trail users are welcome — and encouraged — to break trail with snowshoes and cross country skis.
