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.
Tours will be held following days and locations through the end of March, depending on snow availability:
- Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Taos Ski Valley. Meet at the bottom of Lift 1.
- Fridays at Red River Ski Resort. Meet at the Ski Tip Restaurant.
- Saturdays at Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort. Meet at the top 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.
