The Summit County Mountain Bike Alliance hosted last week the first of an expanded calendar of summer events that will include twilight trail work, mountain bike skills clinics and dig days.

The nonprofit organization executed its first dig of the year at the B-Line trail in Breckenridge on Thursday, May 20, shoveling snow from the trail to help the popular location open sooner.

Alliance President Ben Ferrante said in a note to organization members that leaders of the nonprofit have been training with the U.S. Forest Service and earning certifications so the alliance can officially clear trees and help get trails open once the snow melts.

Ferrante said in the note that the alliance’s further trail improvement plans for summer include working on the Tenderfoot Ride Center in Dillon, Broken Wheel Trail, Colorado Trail, Lenawee Trail off the back side of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Soda Ridge outside of Keystone and Miners Creek in the Tenmile Range.

The nonprofit also has partnered with Colorado Adventure Guides to offer beginner and intermediate skills clinics this summer.

Following intro to mountain biking skills clinics Sunday, May 23, and Monday, May 24, at the Frisco Adventure Park, subsequent co-ed and women’s skills clinics will continue throughout the summer.

The organization will host its official summer kickoff event June 5 at Frisco Bike Park. For more information, visit or the organization’s Facebook page at
