The Nature Conservancy and Vail Resorts announce the 1% For The Forest initiative, a beneficiary project in which one percent of revenue from Epic Discovery activities at Heavenly Mountain Resort help fund important ecological restoration and conservation projects managed by The Nature Conservancy. The important eco-discovery projects, the Independence Lake Preserve and River Fork Ranch Preserve, connect citizens of the region with uniquely iconic natural settings.
New this season at Epic Discovery, the 4,159-foot Silver Rush Zip Line flies guests from tree to tree at speeds up to 40 miles per hour. Overlooking the high desert of the Carson Valley, Silver Rush is comprised of five segmented zip lines; the final of which flies guests over the waters of East Peak Lake. Guests enjoy a scenic ATV ride back to the top of the Gondola. The three-hour long, intimate experience is Heavenly Mountain Resort’s signature activity debuting at Epic Discovery this summer.
Epic Discovery provides a unique, on-mountain summer experience, immersing guests in activities which provide big-time thrills; allow them to challenge themselves physically; guide them to explore and better understand their natural surroundings; connect them to the unique history of the town, and ultimately, create lifelong memories.
