Introduction

Tours are led by Forest Service conservation education staff and volunteers through a cooperative effort between Heavenly Mountain Resort and Lake Tahoe Visitor Authority’s Explore Tahoe. Participants must be intermediate level skiers or snowboarders or above, and provide their own lift ticket. No reservations are required. Attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis.

This free conservation education program is offered to help educate the public about the mission and role of the Forest Service in ski area management, improve public understanding of natural resource processes and issues, and promote environmental literacy and stewardship.
