Support for Sandia Nordic Trails+ Grant
I am signing this petition in support of Sandia Nordic Ski Club’s application for a NM Outdoor Recreation Division Trails+ Grant. Since their founding as a nonprofit public charity in 2017, Sandia Nordic has been working with the Sandia Ranger District to design, construct, and maintain groomed cross-country ski trails at the top of the Sandia Mountains. In just a few short years Sandia Nordic has become a highly valued member of the winter recreation community in the greater Albuquerque area as evidenced by the Club’s membership growth which has doubled each year since inception. I believe that Sandia Nordic’s groomed trails – along with other work that the Club does such as providing free clinics to adults and children – have truly enhanced the cross-country skiing experience at the top of the Sandias, and I support the use of NM ORD Trails+ Grant funding to help the Club further these enhancements.
