Levis Mound - Rebuild the Chalet
Construction of the original Levis Mound Chalet was funded by the Clark County Forestry and Parks Dept, an RTA grant and the volunteers in NATA, along with other local businesses.
Please help in raising money to bring the chalet back, better than ever! All money will be donated to the Neillsville Area Trails Association to assist Clark County to rebuild the Levis Mound Chalet.
Friend of the Levis Mound Trail System
Thank you to Scott Trierweiler and Trierweiler Construction for donating a temporary warming/changing/heating shelter for the upcoming winter biking/skiing/snowshoeing!
Please share this campaign so we can reach our goal to build the chalet better than ever (see renderings of the new shelter on the Levis Mound Facebook page).
Also, proceeds from the various events at Levis will towards the cause. Speaking of which, registration for the Sweaty Yeti is open! Sign up, we look forward to seeing you there!
Thank you again for your outstanding support! Please share this with others in the generous mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing community to help us reach our goal and help us bring the chalet back better than ever!!!!
"A slight update on Levis: The F&P Dept is working on getting running water back on tap as soon as possible. Porta potties will continue to be used for now at the trailhead. Discussions are in progress to rebuild and improve the next chalet. We expect to have a circus tent up for Gnomefest (late September) and HS cross country will run as usual in August and September. Mowing operations are starting and as usual, riding remains great. Fundraising for the chalet improvements are going well (Thank you all!)."
Maybe there is a company out there that is willing to match donations? That could help reach the goal a bit faster. I personally don't have any exact connections but just wanted to pose the question.
Frank - fair question. This campaign is no way affiliated with the county. I started it as a friend/fan of the trail system. This money is for improvements beyond what insurance, etc. is covering. Things people have been wanting for years, beyond what the county/insurance is covering. The rebuild is a good opportunity to implement the improvements patrons have been asking for.
I don't mean to be a negative Nancy here, but why is it that the county didn't have this building insured? Or is the $20k needed beyond what insurance will cover?
