    I need to know if I completed everything to receive my pass.. I wanted to volunteer time to acquire it, but I don’t have a clue if it went through.

      Alec- Generally the passes takes about a week to receive in the mail. Your pass is on the way.

    I just joined, signed the waiver and donated $50. Can I use the trails immediately or do I need to wait a week for my pass to come? Is there something I can print out temporarily.

      You can print out your waiver as your temporary trail pass and place it in your dashboard.

      Thank you!

      The rearview mirror hangtag “parking passes” are only for the annual pass holders. Either your day pass or day pass waiver can serve as your parking pass while on the Western Slope.

    Does each member of the family need a trail pass, or is there a Family Trail Pass/as there is a Family SVBC Membership?

      Great question Meg and sorry it isn’t clearer on the page. Each adult needs a trail pass. Children who are old enough to participate in volunteer trail work also need a trail pass.

    I am trying to purchase a day pass for today, but when I select today’s date it says ‘Sales Ended’. Is there some way you can purchase a pass for same day riding?

      Tim, the system has a glitch that we are working to remedy. Please purchase for a later date and feel free to use it for today. Sorry for the hassle.
