Clear your calendar for June 14th Corral Party and volunteer trail building. We have a big day planned partnering with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship again. They’ll be bringing the party trailer, beers, BBQ and tunes. We’ll also be joined by some fine folks over at BIKE magazine that will be in Tahoe working on a feature story for an upcoming issue. Free event, but please RSVP so we have an idea of how much food, drink and trail tools are needed.
For more info on how the project has been coming together check out this video put together by First Track Productions.
We will also be working on Corral Sunday June 8th, we could really use the help. Please show up at 9 a.m. to help buff out some of the new Corral features, please wear long pants and sleeves for the trail work. Then join us for some test riding and post work party!

The time has come to build. Construction on the 30 plus new features on Lower Corral trails starts Monday May 5th. TAMBA and the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) have an official partnership to build the Corral Trail Enhancement project. SBTS has more than 10 years of experience building trails on US Forest Service land and has the proper insurance, personnel and equipment to lead this project.
A formal contract has been signed between the SBTS, who will act as lead contractor. TAMBA raised $25,000 in private donations in the last year to help pay for this project. The money will be used to pay for labor, equipment rentals and materials costs. All work performed will meet the design intent and criteria of the construction documents and approval of the U.S. Forest Service.
The construction team will be led by legendary Downieville rider/builder Henry O’Donnell and be a mix of SBTS employees and TAMBA volunteers including Kris Morehead, Benny McGinnis and Kevin Joell. Oversight will be provided by the LTBMU staff. Construction is expected to take up to four weeks working Monday-Thursday. It is advised that users take alternate routes around Lower Corral such as Incense Cedar Trail to avoid delaying construction activities.
TAMBA and SBTS will jointly hold a volunteer workday from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 17, followed by a get together Saturday evening at Divided Sky and a guided mountain bike ride on Sunday.
Join us for another fun night of mountain bike films, raffle prizes, food, drink, and 2014 membership drive.
Shindig starts at 6pm at the Himmel Haus in South Lake Tahoe (Across the street from Heavenly California Base Lodge)
