2017 IMBA Dig In Campaign

From massive, multi-use singletrack systems of 20 miles or more to an area’s first-ever bike-only DH trail to high school mountain bike racing courses, these 68 projects will improve communities, change lives and make mountain biking even more awesome.


Central Wyoming Trails Alliance is pleased to announce that we have been selected by the International Mountain Biking Association as a recipient of the 2017 Dig In Campaign. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to get some funds to finally get some maps and signs up at the trail heads and intersections of the Casper Mountain Trails Center. With the full force of IMBA behind us we will conduct a fund raising campaign along with 67 other chapters throughout 30 other states across the country now through the end of the year.

Our chapter will receive 80% of all revenue collected through our chapter’s page, and IMBA will give all chapters that are participating an even amount of the total they make from the campaign on a national level. Many of our members donate their incredibly valuable time and sweat to help get things done on a weekly basis, but now we are asking you to consider donating a little bit of money to help further your efforts. All donations, no matter how big or small, are tax deductible and will go a long way toward helping provide Casper outdoor recreation with a brighter future.
