Ski With a Ranger Begins at Heavenly Mountain Resort

Posted: Updated:

From the U.S. Forest Service:

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit invites you to Ski with a Ranger at Heavenly Mountain Resort beginning Friday, January 17, 2014. Tours begin at the top of the gondola at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. every Monday and Friday. Spanish Ski with a Ranger returns March 7, 2014, with tours offered every Friday at 10:30 a.m. Both programs last approximately one-hour and continue through April 11, 2014, weather permitting. 

Participants must be intermediate level skiers/boarders or above and provide their own lift ticket.  No reservations are required; attendance is on a first-come first-served basis. 

These conservation education programs are offered to educate the public about the mission and role of the Forest Service in ski area management, to improve public understanding of natural resource processes and issues, and to promote environmental literacy and stewardship. Programs are led by U.S. Forest Service Conservation Education staff and volunteers, and operate through a cooperative effort between Heavenly Mountain Resort and the City of South Lake Tahoe.
