What’s under the slopes and how is the mountain formed? These are just a few of the topics that will be discussed at the first ever Ski With A Ranger Day at Loveland Ski Area. Loveland is putting on the event with help from the U.S. Forest Service.
“Loveland Ski Area has maintained a strong partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and we wanted to expand on that to give our skiers and riders the opportunity to learn more about the high alpine environment we all enjoy so much.
Guests will join a Forest Service Snow Ranger for a fun and free activity down an easy run. The relationships between Loveland and the land will be discussed. Topics include glacial geology, winter ecology, local history, and partnerships. It is recommended that participants are at least 8 years old.
Ski with a Ranger day is March 30 and then again April 27. Guests meet at either 10:15 a.m. or 1:15 p.m. to take the run with the Snow Ranger. Head over to Ptarmigan Roost Cabin at the top of Chair 2.
Another event coming up at Loveland is Skiing Magazine’s Don’t Stop Skiing Day. It’s April 6 and you can demo some gear, listen to live music, grab a beer, and get giveaways.
