Document Description
The Epic Discovery project is intended to enhance summer activities in response to the USDA Forest Service Ski Area Recreational Opportunity Enhancement Act of 2011. Heavenly proposes to improve year-round recreation opportunities within the developed portions of the ski area on National Forest System lands using existing facilities and infrastructure to meet the expanding needs and expectations of visitors to Lake Tahoe, better support the year-round local economy of the South Lake Tahoe area, and connect a diverse group of visitors to our national forest with recreation and educational opportunities to further inspire passion and excitement for the outdoors. The summer activities are designed to suit a wide range of visitors from the casual sightseer to the avid mountain adventurer. Epic Discovery activities include zipline canopy tours, a challenge (ropes) course, an alpine coaster, a sky cycle tour, a mountain bike park (located in Nevada and outside of the Lake Tahoe Basin), hiking and connector trails, a mountain excursion tour and other smaller infill activities.
