TAHOE CITY — The Tahoe Rim Trail Association and U.S. Forest Service announce the third annual three-day, regional guide training May 13-15. The training will be held at Granlibakken Conference Center in Tahoe City, and the course registration fee includes food and dormitory style lodging.

In order to meet the needs of the public and to provide the best possible experience on the trail for all types of users, the TRTA and USFS aim to continue developing and hosting a high-quality, regional guide training each spring. This training provides volunteers and professional guides the skills they need to be competent, responsible wilderness guides who know how to lead a group, whether in an urban or a remote setting. This comprehensive guide training, offered to the general public, gives eager outdoors people the skills to not only be successful in their outdoor pursuits, but also to be knowledgeable and excellent volunteer or paid guides.

New this year, organizations will have the chance to market their opportunities on Saturday afternoon. New guides are encouraged to sign up for Foundations of Guiding (Track A) led by experienced TRTA guides and partner organizations. Interpretation (Track B) is aimed toward those who specifically want to learn interpretive skills. This track will be instructed by USFS staff from the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit that specialize in interpretation and education.

Those interested in being a guide for the Tahoe Rim Trail Association or another organization may take advantage of this training. All participants over 18 years of age are welcome to attend, regardless of background or level of ability.

The training will begin at noon on Friday, May 13, and from 1:30 p.m. Sunday, May 15. Cost is $165 per person for all three days of training, normally a $350 value. The cost includes all meals from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch and dormitory style lodging. Financial assistance and other priced packages are available.

The deadline for registration is April 30. To register visit tahoerimtrail.org and register online. For more information, call the TRTA office at 775-298-0012.

The Tahoe Rim Trail Association, founded in 1981, is a non-profit organization that works to enhance, expand and promote the Tahoe Rim Trail system, practice and encourage stewardship, and provide access to the beauty of the Lake Tahoe region. The association works in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and Nevada State Parks.
