Carson National Forest’s popular snow ranger program is returning to Taos Ski Valley. Employees and volunteers will lead 60-minute interpretive ski and snowboard tours twice a week.
Rangers, who will either ski or snowboard with visitors, will cover local cultural and natural history, along with information about the special use permits the ski resort operates under. Wildlife biologists, archeologists and firefighters will join some of the sessions and may cover geology, heritage sites, wilderness areas, water, sustainability, fire adapted ecosystems, recreation opportunities, safety and Leave No Trace ethics. Attend each week to learn new information from different specialists.
Snow Ranger interpretive tours begin January 10th at 1:30 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Taos Ski Valley through the end of March (29th). Meet at the bottom of Lift 1.
The Snow Ranger Program is free and open to people of all ages and abilities. Participants must have a valid lift ticket and gear. Participants must be able to ski/snowboard beginner slopes.
