Lee Canyon’s historic ski and snowboard season is finally coming to a close.
Lee Canyon saw 100,000 skiers and snowboarders this season — the most for any season in the history of the area, according to a resort news release.
To celebrate the end of the winter season, the resort is hosting a free Splash and Dash race, which is a fusion of boardercross and pond skimming, at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes.
“This winter season warrants a celebration,” Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s director of marketing, said in a release. “We appreciate the Las Vegas community’s passion for outdoor recreation throughout the year.”
Lee Canyon will be open for three-day weekends from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning May 19. Guests can visit the Brewing Burro coffee shop, chair lifts and the Bristlecone Trail.
Later this summer, the resort will hold a grand opening for its downhill mountain bike park and bring back other seasonal activities including disc golf, axe throwing and archery.
The resort says it saw a 300 percent increase in summer visitation last year over 2018 and 2019.
