What's happening on the mountain
  • FALL:
  • The days are warm but the breeze is chilly!
    The elevation makes the sun more intense, so even though it is cooler, you still need to protect your skin and hydrate often!

  • * Weekly Fall Color Walks: Calendar

    * Musicians wanted, from school ensembles to professionals, and everyone in-between! We have various opportunities for groups to perform at events and to support our concerts that benefit the GO Mt Charleston education and volunteer programs. Email us a bio/group description and a link of your music to 
  • *Weekend Programs*: Check our calendar for events at the Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway

  • Volunteer on the Mountain:
  • Hike trails, help with snow safety, meet new people, and learn about the Spring Mountains - VOLUNTEER !
  • Our volunteer opportunities offer a fun, rewarding way to give back.

  • Fire Safety
  • Campfires are not permitted during the summer, but visitors can use a gas grill with an "on/off" switch or knob. Fireworks, explosives, and charcoal grills are prohibited. Smoking is only allowed within a vehicle or in a building.
