U.S. Forest Service officials are offering the public a chance to "ski with a ranger" at Heavenly Mountain Resort.

The program allows skiers to learn about Lake Tahoe's natural history, including wildlife, forest health and area cultural history.

Participants will also learn about watershed management issues at Heavenly, which operates on Forest Service land under a long-term recreational lease. Skiers will learn about the role of the Forest Service in ski area management. The hour-long programs are offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Mondays and Fridays from Jan. 18 through April 12. Tours begin near the bottom of the stairs at the top of the Heavenly gondola. No reservations are required.

Participants must purchase their own lift tickets and be intermediate-level or above skiers or snowboarders.

For information, contact Megan Dee at (530) 543-2618 or mldee@fs.fed.us, or visit http://ht.ly/gE2iA.
