The North Shore Trail Pass is a fee that is collected by the NSMBA that is used directly for trail building and trail building resources. It does not pay for administrative costs or insurance, just trail building resources.
North Shore Trail Pass' are sold seperate from a membership with the NSMBA and is ideal for people who are looking to give back beyond their annual membership. A Trail Pass is also ideal for riders who are not from the North Shore but would like to give back in some way. Think of it almost as a lift ticket.
A North Shore Trail Pass is valid from March 1 of the year of purchase until February 28 of the following year, the same period as an annual membership. Although the purchase of a Trail Pass does not give you the same benefits as an annual membership (Insurance coverage for events and races, monthly email updates on events and trail updates) it does give you the extra piece of mind that you are contributing directly to the local trail system.
The purchase of a Trail Pass includes an annual trail pass (sticker) dated with the year of purchase.
North Shore Trail Pass' can be purchase at your local bike shop as well as online.
