Lee Canyon Ski Resort near Las Vegas, Nevada & Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. The ski area is located in the Humbolt-Toiyabe Forest on the north side of the 11,289ft/3441m Lee Peak. Above the lift serviced terrain on Lee Peak, expert skiers and snowboarders will discover the hike to terrain of West Bowl, Bristlecone Ridge, 3 Springs and Dolomite, all of which are rated as double black diamond terrain. You can find the ski area at the end of Lee Canyon Road, Northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada, a city known for its gambling and nightlife. The history of the Lee Canyon Ski Resort dates back to the 1930’s when it began as a recreation area with its first rope tow. Originally named Lee Canyon Ski Area, it opened for business in 1964 as a rush of people to Las Vegas created the need for winter recreation. Over the years, the resort has made a host of improvements and in 1995 officially changed its name to Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort. With the recent addition of a new quad chairlift and many more changes planned for the future, the ownership group has made the decision that some things should have never changed and after careful consideration, the ski area, beginning with the 2015/16 winter season will once again be known as Lee Canyon Ski Resort. This change will be most noted by the resort’s most loyal visitors who have never actually never let go of the original name.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.

On the Slopes

  • With over 240in/610cm of snow, 300+ days of sunshine and over 30 trails there is something for everyone at Lee Canyon Ski Resort. The terrain ranges from beginner to advanced and hosts spectacular views down Lee Canyon. Remember to pack your camera and of course, your sunscreen.
  • The ski and snowboard area has the distinct advantage of facing north, which provides the protection of the surrounding mountains to shield the slopes from the wind.
  • Lee Canyon Ski Resort is family friendly and offers several programs for children just starting out on the slopes.
  • "The Strip” Terrain Park, appropriately named for the area, is located off of Chair 2. Here’s where the action begins with rails, jumps and other features.

Off the Slopes

  • After a great day on the slopes or just an afternoon break, you’ll find an excellent selection of food and beverage available at the Big Horn Grill, the Bristlecone Bar and the new Chair 4 roof top patio, weather permitting.
  • Forgot something at home or looking to add some new gear? Lee Canyon Sports located in the base area has a variety of gloves, goggles, clothing, souvenirs and yes, sunscreen. Also, there is a complete line-up of rentals available for skiing and snowboarding in the Performance Center.
  • Prefer to leave the driving to someone else, shuttle transportation is available for a fee during the winter season.
  • While there is no accommodation at the resort, you can find lodging only 20 minutes away at the Mt Charleston Lodge or hotels directly on the Las Vegas Strip only 50 minutes from the mountain top.
