Lee Canyon Ski Area looks to expand terrain and upgrade facilities

This spring, Lee Canyon Ski Area announced that it would seek to expand its in-bounds terrain and upgrade its facilities across the resort. The plan had been on hold while representatives from Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest drafted a report, that was released this week, citing the environmental impacts of the proposed development. The public is being asked to provide commentary, questions and concerns about the project before Monday, October 1.

Located in the heart of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, just an hour drive from Las Vegas, Nevada, Lee Canyon has been spinning its lifts since 1962 and currently offers visitors 445 acres of lift-served and hike-to terrain.

The proposed development plan is comprehensive and includes the construction of three new chairlifts catered to beginner and intermediate skiers; expanded terrain that will open up gladed skiing options; additional snowmaking lines and a pump house for improved snowmaking capabilities; a mountain biking trail system, zip line and hiking trails for summer use; and a handful of new facilities to improve the guest experience.
