Mr. Patrick Kell will be visiting in Big Bear Valley on April 16 and 17. The Trails Foundation will be taking him into to the field to see the Skyline Trail Proposal and other work the Trails Foundation has accomplished. He will be meeting with local bike shop owners, Trails Foundation Board members, USFS staff, and ski areas officials (come on guys…opening these slopes would bring in revenue to our town!) while he is in town.

The goal of this visit is to get to know Mr. Koll and the work of IMBA and explore how we might work together to make Big Bear Valley a more non-motorized friendly valley.

Have a question you’d like us to ask IMBA in person for you? Let us know!
