Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort

Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is about 47 miles northwest of Las Vegas at the upper end of Lee Canyon (take US 95 30 miles north of Las Vegas to Highway 156, then follow 156 to the end of the road). It's a gorgeous area in the high mountains of Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.

There is a good sport shop at the resort and an equipment rental shop that even offers parkas. In the Base Lodge, the Big Horn Cafe offers hot/cold drinks, salads, soups, sandwiches, burgers and other snacks. In peak season the outdoor mesquite grill is fired up to deliver more fire-grilled entrees. The Bristlecone Bar offers full-service daily from 8:30 to 4:30.

There is a 500' intermediate half-pipe off chair #2 at the bottom of the Strip run and a variety of other terrain features scattered around the mountain.
