OMG! It’s So Deep Avalanche Danger
Skiing at Lee Canyon formerly Las Vegas Ski Resort This popular get away is less than an Hour from the Last Vegas strip and provides beautiful scenery and extreme biodiversity, as you climb in Altitude you can see the changes in the plants that cover the landscape. The bases of the mountains are part of the Mojave zone dominated by creosote bush and white bursage, then rising to a blackbush scrub zone, followed by a pygmy conifer zone with juniper, pinyon pine, and mountain mahogany, and topped by a montane zone with many species of conifers around Mt. Charleston and its connecting ridges.
