An agreement was signed recently by Mary Jo Tarallo, executive director for LSSM and Jim Bedwell, director of recreation, heritage and volunteer resources for the Forest Service.  The agreement details the efforts to mutually encourage children and adults to learn how to ski and/or snowboard by taking lessons from professional instructors.  According to Forest Service data, alpine skiing is the second most popular recreation on Forest Service land behind hiking.

Information about LSSM is being posted on Forest Service websites.  Ski and snowboard areas throughout the U.S. including California offer free and reasonably priced turnkey programs during January as part of this initiative.

“We are working together to create public awareness for California snow sports and winter activity outdoors,” said Randy Moore, pacific southwest regional forester.
