LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The sale of the Lee Canyon ski area to new owners means new pricing and programs, and the resort is already offering an early bird discount for the 2023-2024 season with passes starting at $99.
But the biggest news might be that kids 12 and younger will be able to ski for free with the “Power Kids” season pass, which also includes mountain bike lift access for the 2023 bike park season.
Some of the annual passes provide access to Mountain Capital Partners’ other ski areas and bike parks — an added bonus for people who travel. Among those properties: Brian Head Resort in southern Utah and the Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff.
“For 60 years, Lee Canyon has been Las Vegas’ backyard escape. Now, as one of MCP’s Power Pass mountains, we can empower more residents than ever to discover skiing and boarding,” Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s director of marketing, said. “As a parent, I know the value of getting kids outdoors early. Our Power Kids will inspire an entirely new generation of outdoor enthusiasts in Las Vegas.”
