Event description

The party at Coldwater Lake has been approved by the U.S. Forest Service for the weekend of June 2-4. This event will feature ride opportunities on Friday and Sunday, a full-on build on Saturday, a party on Saturday night, and a rare chance to camp on the north side of the mountain. If you haven’t been to Coldwater, it’s unbelievably beautiful. We have been granted a one-of-a-kind exemption to camp right near the lake. Bring the family and make it a weekend.

If the snow is off, we will be cleaning the 211 trail on the north side of the lake and a portion of the 230A on the south side.

Friday, June 2nd:  Come early to do a ride and set-up camp

Saturday, June 3rd:

  • 9am:  Meet at boat launch for Safety meeting and breaking to work groups
  • 5pm:  Dinner party

Sunday, June 4th, 9am:  Break into ride groups


This is dispersed camping with no  water. However there is a bathroom. Make sure to bring plenty of water.
