Support Winter Bike Trail Work with this Raffle

Central Oregon Trail Alliance is raffling off a winter-ready fat bike in support of fat bike riding on the winter trails in and around Wanoga Sno-Park. A $10 ticket puts one in the running to win a 2021 Fatback Bikes Rhino FLT, which retails at $2,199. The ticket helps COTA groom approved trails and build new ones. Those pristine snowy weather trails don't groom themselves—nor does the gas required to groom said trails come out of nowhere... so this is a win-win way to help out.

Get a link to the raffle at the COTA website, cotamtb.com.

Gather Online for Avalanche Education and Networking

This Saturday offers an opportunity for locals—or even those in far-flung locales—to learn about current research, best practices and more around avalanches. The Central Oregon Avalanche Center is hosting an online workshop Nov. 14 from 9am to 1:15pm, presented by Mt. Bachelor and the American Avalanche Association. While you may be stoked to get out and hit the snow this season, this is one pandemic-era learning experience that you can do while you stay in your pajamas. Buy tickets ($15) at coavalanche.org.
