What's the catch? The catch is that we need to sell enough passes each year to cover grooming costs. BSF needs $70,000+ for grooming, maintenance, and equipment each year, with additional funds needed for the new snowmaking system at Sunset Hills. We raise that money solely through grants, donations, and trail passes. It turns out, that's a lot of trail passes.
So I don't really need to buy a pass? Technically, this is true. But the only way this voluntary trail pass system works is if the community supports it. So, be part of the Bozeman way--buy a pass and keep the trails groomed and free to everyone.
Where does my money go? BSF is a nonprofit and your purchase goes straight to BSF's Trails Program to fund the grooming of trails, grooming equipment and the maintenance and management of the program. And yes, your trails pass is a tax-deductible contribution.
