We don’t need a gold medal for how successful the free park day was! We had such a great time celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Thank you to everyone who came out to explore the Olympic Heritage Trail at Sugar Pine Point State Park. A special thanks to the California State Parks for hosting and setting up interpretative displays. This included historic images and a movie, “Flames in the Snow,” of the 1960 Winter Olympics.
The free park day was sponsored by Sierra State Parks Foundation, your local nonprofit park partner. The SSPF’s mission is to preserve our local parks for all to enjoy. We love hosting free park days because we’re able to introduce new people to some of the amazing nature Tahoe has to offer! Lastly, a friendly reminder that the park and its trails are open to the public year round from sunrise to sunset.
