Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Lee Canyon is joining the long list of destinations and business closing their doors due to COVID-19 concerns. They announced Tuesday that resort operations will close for the remainder of the winter season after being slated to close April 5.

This follows a recent announcement from the ski resort last week, saying that would suspend operations from March 15-22.

According to a press release from Lee Canyon, all scheduled employees will receive normal compensation through March 22.

The resort says it remains hopeful that it will reopen for summer recreation activities according to its regular schedule.

“Our decision to end the winter season was not made lightly, and it is the right choice given we are in the midst of a nation-wide public health crisis. We all must do what we can to stop the spread. Our focus remains on our employees, guests, and the local community staying well so that when the situation improves, we may all have a healthy return to this adventure lifestyle we live for and love.”

Dan Hooper, Lee Canyon’s general manager
