Eastern Nevada’s only chairlift-accessed skiing option is Elko Snobowl, six miles north of the city. The volunteer-run ski hill has one chairlift, 700 feet of vertical, runs for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, certified ski patrollers, and snowmaking capabilities.
Just an hour from the desert-bound palm tree-lined Strip, Lee Canyon is a downhill alpine oasis. Situated in the nearly 12,000-foot-high Spring Mountains, it is Southern Nevada’s only skiing and snowboarding option.
The resort was recently approved to expand to 10 lifts from its existing count of four and increase from 11 to 50 total trails, effectively more than tripling its size. Additional changes include increased snowmaking capabilities and parking, upgraded equipment, and expanded guest facilities. While all the changes will take place over a 10- to 12-year period, Lee Canyon president and general manager Kevin Stickelman says some of the improvements will be visible during the 2011-12 season.
Due to a surprising early-season storm, the resort was one of the first in the U.S. to open for a short duration on October 8.
