VMBA Chapter Trail Grant
Each year VMBA seeks sponsorship to support the amazing work of chapters. Most often volunteers, these folks work all season long to produce a critical element of the sweet riding scene in Vermont. VMBA take an active role through the VMBA Trails Grant. To further support chapters, VMBA sponsors a trail building clinic. Taught by experienced and talented builders, the clinic provides all chapters with building best practices and facilitates connections between builders and representatives from Forest Parks and Recreation, and the Forest Service.
