Grooming The Future

TVTAP is launching a capital campaign to grow capacity and to acquire a Favero Snow Rabbit snowcat! In order to make this program sustainable, we've built a 5-year plan that includes the costs of maintenance, storage, insurance, as well as funding for a winter trail manager position. See detailed plan and budget here.

Winter is coming fast, which gives us an element of urgency, so we'd like to see if we can wrap this up. Please share the campaign far and wide. We encourage participation from the entire Nordic and trails community!

As we still need your Trail Sticker support and to make our operating expenses, we do want folks to know we are seeking capital campaign gifts above and beyond our donors' usual annual giving amounts.

Grooming Limerick

Grooming trails is something we do
For our community and people like you
It's a rather large task
So we'd like to ask
Thank our volunteers and buy them a brew

Snowmo grooming is sporty and fun
Luxury items-there really are none
It requires a hearty soul
Ready to brave the cold
Rarely do we work in the sun

Many hours go into each season
Grooming 6 venues in our Teton region
860 hours last year
And that's just the volunteers...
They all deserve a vacation!

Let's talk about our long winter, my friends
22 weeks of grooming, from start to end
Last season we drove 8,500 miles
Creating 52,000 smiles
And have lots of equipment to mend

Thanks to you for providing support
And monitoring our grooming report
We'll work hard as we can
To fulfill our Snow Rabbit plan
And have one ready to groom for your sport.

This Rabbit isn't an ordinary bunny
It lays smooth tracks, this machine's a real honey
We're stepping up ops
With big leaps and hops
And this growth will cost us some real money

We need YOUR help to complete our campaign
Because soon we'll be grooming again
Our Snow Rabbit dream
Will take the whole team
Before we pop open champagne

The fundraising goal is in view
We've raised a fair bit of money with support of a few
But still need more to go
Before we groom snow
We're nearly there—now here's what you can do:

Reach out to Peggy or Dan
To learn about our "Grooming The Future" plan
Then you write us a check
So we can finish this project
And soon have the Rabbit in hand
