Join a US Forest Service ranger for an interpretive tour over the snow at Heavenly Mountain Resort on Mondays and Fridays at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm., February 2 through April 12, 2015, at the Top of the Heavenly Gondola.
The tour explores the natural and cultural history of the Lake Tahoe Basin, highlighting topics such as water quality, watershed restoration, habitat improvement, fire and fuels management and responsible recreation. Both intermediate level skiers and snowboarders are encouraged to join. The tour is highly interactive and includes an up-close and personal introduction to some of the most enchanting alpine trees in the world and the fascinating adaptation habits of Tahoe-native wildlife. Get an in-depth look at the geology and formation of Lake Tahoe as well as the rich and diverse cultural heritage of the area.
This on-mountain tour is free for intermediate (or above) skiers and snowboarders that already have a lift ticket or season pass. It begins at the top of the gondola every Monday and Friday at 10:00am and 1:00pm and lasts about an hour. Ski with a Ranger is on a first come, first serve basis so be sure to arrive a few minutes early to ensure your spot, especially if you plan to take the tour with a group of friends or family members.
The tour is one hour, and meets at the top of the Heavenly Gondola. For more info, call (530) 543.2618.
