Labor Day caps summer season at Lee Canyon in Southern Nevada

Labor Day weekend marks the end of the summer season at Lee Canyon.

The resort offers a place for visitors to escape the heat seven climate zones above the desert floor. Disc golf, hiking, One-wheel tours, archery, mountain biking and a scenic chairlift ride are among the activities offered. Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s marketing director, said the summer season was a good one for the resort.

“Summer 2018 was an exceptional season for Lee Canyon. Mountain Fest was a huge success, and we introduced new event series like Wine and Canvas and Youth Adventure Days that were well-received by locals and visitors alike,” Seely said. “We look forward to the upcoming winter season and thank the Southern Nevada community for making this summer a landmark season.”

Labor Day weekend will be the final opportunity for guests to purchase or pick up their 2018-19 winter season passes at the resort. Skiers and snowboarders can also get their passes during Lee Canyon’s third annual Pray for Snow party Nov. 3 at Skye Canyon Park.

Adult skiers and snowboarders can choose from passes including the All Access ($499) that features 45 days of free lift access at 11 partner resorts, the Battle Born pass ($299), that includes two reduced-rate lift tickets and the Weekday Warrior pass ($249) that’s valid Monday through Friday throughout the winter season. The resort also offers youth season passes.

Lee Canyon will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, Sunday and Monday and will close at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1. Dogs are welcome at the resort but must remain on leashes.
