Campgrounds, day-use areas and forest roads generally open around mid-May, weather permitting. The Taylor Creek Visitor Center and the Tallac Historic Site typically open around Memorial Day weekend.

Before facilities can open to the public, the Forest Service must complete the task of hiring crews to staff and manage the sites, clean up from winter, remove safety hazards and wait for the danger of a freeze to pass before turning on water systems. As a reminder, until recreation facilities officially open, there is no parking, trash removal, or restroom facilities available. Please park your vehicle off the roadway and do not block access gates. Pack out all trash and where pets are allowed, please clean up after your animal.

School board in South Lake Tahoe approves Mountain Sports Academy

Starting in the fall, Lake Tahoe Unified School District will offer a new, sportier program to students who are just as interested in hitting the slopes as they are in their education.

The school board approved the creation of the South Lake Tahoe Mountain Sports Academy at their Tuesday meeting. The new school will balance on-hill or on-ice training with normal high school courses and events.

The new academy will aim to develop students’ abilities in skiing, snowboarding or ice hockey as well as provide them with an education that’s scheduled around their training. 

The academy is a partnership between Sierra-at-Tahoe Ski Resort, Tahoe Sports Entertainment, which runs the ice rink, and the school district. During the winter season, daily transportation to the mountain or to the ice rink would be provided. Academy students would take courses in classrooms near the facilities as well as at South Tahoe High School. All transportation and other costs of attending competitions would be the responsibility of the student.The South Lake Tahoe Mountain Sports Academy is geared toward middle-class families who can’t afford a typical academy price tag of $100,000 or more. Sierra and the school district will be recruiting students from the high school’s existing ski team, the Sierra development and Rippers teams, the United States Amateur Snowboard Association roster, and other high schools in El Dorado County, Sacramento and the Bay Area.

The new academy will only be a day program. The district will not be responsible for housing the students. The primary benefit to the school district is the increased enrollment that an academy schedule would bring.

The main costs revolve around the coaching academy students would receive, rather than the education component. Costs for the coaching program and use of facilities is estimated between $10,000 and $15,000 depending on whether the student chooses skiing, snowboarding or ice hockey.
