Volunteers are needed Saturday, July 8, to help Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) improve the Village Bound Trail in Snowmass Village. This main trail from the town center runs for three miles up Snowmass Mountain toward Sam’s Knob. The upper sections of this popular hiking and mountain biking route are in need of drainage and trail improvements.

RFOV and its project partners, the town of Snowmass Village, the Aspen Skiing Co. Environment Foundation and others will provide the tools, materials, leadership and some great rewards including a dinner at the end of the day. To volunteer or for more information, call RFOV at 927-8241 or toll-free at 877-662-5220, e-mail or visit
