What's happening on the mountain
  • Summer:
  • The weather is warm, pack sunscreen & water!
    The elevation makes the sun more intense, so even though it is cooler, you still need to protect your skin and hydrate often!
  • * Weekly hikes, JR Ranger, and more: Summer 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:

  • Our volunteer opportunities offer a fun, rewarding way to give back.
