The Methow Valley Sport Trails Association (MVSTA) is teaming up with Room One to offer affordable winter recreational opportunities to residents who receive health and human services through Room One.

The partnership is in response to feedback MVSTA heard from the community about providing access to trail systems and other outdoor activities for the valley’s lower-income residents, according to a press release from Room One, the nonprofit agency in Twisp.

Room One will identify people eligible for the recreation support program and provide help through a variety of resources. MVSTA is working with local organizations and businesses to provide recreational equipment and other amenities such as vouchers for ski trails, ski lifts, snowshoe trails and ice skating; equipment rental; and cross country ski lessons.

Participants include the Winthrop Ice & Sports Rink, Loup Loup Ski Bowl, Winthrop Mountain Sports, Methow Cycle and Sport and the Methow Valley Ski School.

Anyone interested in learning more about the program can contact Kelleigh McMillan, winter access program coordinator at Room One, at 997-2050.
