LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — You don’t have to travel very far to play in the snow this week if you live in Las Vegas, but head up to Mount Charleston and you’ll find almost 30 inches of fresh powder at Lee Canyon.

The ski and snowboard resort just north of the Las Vegas valley says it received 27 inches of snow in the last 72 hours, bringing its base to 61-inches.

Parts of the Las Vegas valley received snow on Monday and Tuesday as a winter storm swept through the area.

“The main thing about this season is that we wanted to be here for the community,” said Jim Seely, the Lee Canyon marketing director. “We want to be a place where everyone can come escape their routine and maybe some of the constraints that COVID has put on their life,” he said. “We want people to get outdoors.”
