Welcome Back

Through this season of stay-at-home orders and uncertainty we’ve been planning for the day when we could welcome you back to the mountains for fresh air, wide-open spaces, and time to connect with nature. That time has come.

We have modified many of our operations informed by the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of California, and the Placer County Health Department. As new information becomes available we will continue to adapt so that you can enjoy time recharging in the mountains.

We are all in this together and guests have various levels of sensitivity to the health impacts of COVID 19.  Please respect others' views and be a conscientious part of our community.
