Silent Tracks is committed to working with the USFS and other stakeholders to create a winter travel management plan for the Gunnison Valley. We are working with other local and national organizations to promote and protect human powered and sustainable recreation.

Silent Tracks wants to keep you informed about important developments related to winter travel management planning. Be informed! Check out these useful local and national websites and resource documents for more details.

The Winter Wildlands Alliance is a national activist organization that builds relationships with grassroots snowsports and conservation groups, in addition to  publicizing national issues impacting human-powered snowsports and maintaining regular communication with the Forest Service, Park Service, and Congressional representatives.  Silent Tracks is a member of the WWA Grassroots Network.
