LAS VEGAS – Lee Canyon will open its gate to welcome skiers and snowboarders at 9
a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2017 for its 55th winter season. Due to unseasonably warm weather,
Rabbit Peak will be the first to open this season with some terrain park features. Until additional runs
open, skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of pre-season lift ticket pricing. Additional resort
amenities that will be open include guest services, the Bighorn Grill, and Bristlecone Bar. During its
winter season, the resort is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Complimentary coaching will be available to beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders on
Rabbit Peak. Private or group lessons can be reserved at the Pro Shop. Guests are encouraged to take
advantage of digital discounts by pre-purchasing lift tickets on the resort’s website. Additionally, season
passes can be purchased online or at the base lodge.
“The Lee Canyon team always looks forward to welcoming new and familiar faces to the resort,” said Jim
Seely, Lee Canyon’s Marketing Director. “We will continue our snowmaking efforts when weather
conditions allow. While this is not ideal, we appreciate the community’s patience as we gradually open
upper chairlifts, trails, and tubing following an unseasonably warm November.”
Opening dates for tubing, the Bluebird and Sherwood chairlifts, and the snowshoeing trail will be
announced at a later date.
Lee Canyon’s 2017/18-winter season is expected to run through March 2018, weather permitting. Guests
planning on visiting Lee Canyon are encouraged to purchase tickets on their website to avoid sold out
