New Epic Winter Adventure Program Launched at Heavenly

Company-wide on 3/31/2016 10:37:30 AM


A new 5th grade educational snowshoe program was started this season at Heavenly Ski Resort aimed towards encouraging learning on the mountain. Over 300 students on the south shore of Lake Tahoe will take part in the program throughout the season and learn about wildlife, snow science/avalanches, and the science of snowmaking/resort conservation efforts all while snowshoeing at 8,250 ft. Heavenly partnered with local non-profits, the EpicPromise department and fellow resort Beaver Creek to make this program possible. Funding was secured by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency through the EpicPromise Grant program and snowshoes were donated from recycled shoes from Beaver Creek.
