Fall Ecotourism

Seasons Colliding (Fall Ecotourism)

This communications-led fall ecotourism umbrella celebrates the dramatic collision of summer and winter, and encourages visitors to experience the wonder of our snow-capped mountains, fall foliage, crisp mornings and picturesque landscapes… Fall presents an amazing opportunity for a relaxing, uncrowded getaway.

Inspiration: Hiking boots, sweaters, big mountains and cozy fireplaces! Wildlife topics may include education on hibernation of local wildlife and the great southern bird migration along the Pacific Flyway. As a secondary goal, this message will attempt to create a positive space where we can bring awareness to the gondola and/or Village closures and the transition period for many of the core activities.
