Flathead Area Mountain Bikers, Inc. (FAMB) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to preserve and advance mountain biking in the Flathead Valley of northwest Montana. We provide free mountain bike skills clinics to our members and organize volunteer trail-work events. We manage & maintain Spencer Mountain Freeride Trails in Whitefish as well as Whitefish’s pump track in Armory Park. FAMB’s Flathead Trail Crew (FTC) is a county-wide trail crew that works on multi-use trails on public lands. Multi-use trails include trails open to bikers, hikers, motorbikes, dogs, and horses. The FTC’s work season is primarily funded by donations from the community during the Great Fish Community Challenge as well as funding granted through the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) in partnership with the USFS Flathead National Forest.
Reporting to FAMB’s Trail Crew Leader (TCL), each crew member will help carry out projects on public trails that are recognized as valuable to the mountain biking community:

Compensation & Schedule:
This is a seasonal position where scheduling can vary significantly, generally ranging from 20-40 hours per week. Trail work is inherently prone to scheduling changes depending on seasonal conditions and weather (timing of snow thaw & accumulation, fire restrictions & air quality, extreme temperatures). 40 hrs/wk is not guaranteed, some trails require a difference in travel/hike to projects, some require more or less maintenance.
FAMB is devoted to the recognition of our employees and appreciates the commitment to work through the entire season and/or communicate one’s employment timeframe in advance.
