Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard
Watch the landscape transform from arid desert to lush Ponderosa pine forest during the one-hour drive from the Strip to Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort (LVSSR), tucked into the Nevada’s Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. A family-friendly, accessible escape from the hubbub of nearby Vegas is what skiers and snowboarders find at LVSSR.
The area features 11 trails suitable for beginner to advanced skiers and riders serviced by four lifts. Average annual snowfall is 120 inches per year with 300-plus days of sunshine at this homey, mom-and-pop-feeling ski area. Services include LVSSR’s Ski & Snowboard School, the Darkside Terrain Park, The Sports Shop, The Big Horn Café and the Bristlecone Lounge. And if you’re visiting Nevada without ski gear, the Resort has you covered. LVSSR is one of the few resorts in the U.S. that rents both ski and snowboard equipment as well as apparel.
Access LVSSR from the city via the Ski Vegas Ski Bus, a shuttle service operated with the support of the U.S. Forest Service and operated by Triple J Tours and Centennial Shuttle (702) 645-6053.
