Last week, World reporter K.C. Mehaffey wrote about some innovative efforts that the Methow Valley Sport Trails Association is making to increase the number of visitors to the valley and serve the local community better.
MVSTA took some risks by expanding free skiing from youths 13 and under to 17 and under. They launched a pilot program that allows so-called fat bikes on the trails to expand the types of winter use, and over the last several years they expanded the trails that can be skied with dogs. This is not an organization that is afraid to change.
