Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort

The Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort offers 40 acres of ski terrain, with 10 different trails, the longest of which is 3,000 feet. The summit is located at 9,510 feet with a vertical drop of 1,000 feet. There are 30 acres of snowboarding terrain at the resort. During the 1999-2000 season, a half pipe and terrain park was added, making it a paradise for snowboarders — and plenty of snowboarders take advantage of what the resort has to offer. Often times skiers appear to be in the minority on the slopes. Although there are plenty of private and group lessons available for beginners, most of the resort’s terrain, about 60 percent, consists of intermediate runs, some of which are challenging even for intermediate skiers. An additional 20 percent of the terrain is advanced, which doesn’t leave much room for first-timers.
