Ski with a Ranger

The U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit invites you to Ski with a Ranger at Heavenly Mountain Resort beginning Friday, January 22, 2016.  Tours are held every Monday and Friday beginning at 1 p.m., last approximately one-hour and continue through April 1, 2016, 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 and participants should meet at the top of the Heavenly gondola. 

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.
