The slyest rhymes, the sharpest suits; In miracles made real; Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night; You know you're right just to hold her tight; He soothes it right, makes it out of sight; And every thing's good in the world tonight. Ladies and Gentlemen, he knows the ABC's of gaming inside and out and upside down, so please put your hands together for the Wizard of Vegas !

I've skied there lots of times. All three of my kids learned to ski there. It isn't as good as the they skiing in Utah, but you can't beat the convenience if you live in Vegas. Tip -- Try to catch it on a weekday after it snows. Lines will be short and the snow nice and soft. Otherwise, on weekends the lines for the lifts cans be long and on many days the snow is hard and icy.

If any locals ski, let me know. Maybe we'll go sometime. I could use company for mid-week skiing.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

They're saying 3-5 FEET of new snow in the Sierra Nevada range in the next 3 days. Sounds like you should try and plan for this mid-week.

For Attractions Near Las Vegas and General Attractions In Nevada, a good source is the 2013 articles written by Mary Caperton Morton, professional house sitter, hiker, science writer. Camping sites, state parks, geologically interesting sites, roadside sights, etc. She writes for Earth Magazine and The Blond Coyote. She recently joined the Big Sky Ski Patrol after meeting Mr. Right on the Vegas Strip but I don't recall if she has ever reviewed any Nevada ski resorts.

Time to add a "Ski Vegas" bumper sticker to the "Ski Hawaii" one.
