Sustainable Recreation Program Improve Public Recreation Facilities
Heavenly’s Epic Discovery Activities are a set of non-skiing and snowboarding recreational activities and facilities located at Heavenly Mountain Resort. They are designed around elements of the natural environment and are intended to engage visitors with the National Forest. An important objective of Epic Discovery is to diversify summer and year-round recreation activities pursuant to the Summer Activities Recreational Opportunities Enhancement Act of 2011 by engaging a larger segment of summer and non-skiing/riding visitors seeking more managed recreation opportunities.
