LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Lee Canyon hopes it will look like a snowy wonderland come this winter season. To help bring that dream to life and support a good cause, the resort is hosting its fourth annual “Pray for Snow” party on Nov. 2 at Skye Canyon Park.
Guests of all ages can enjoy several festivities, from live music by Rein to a vendor village, food and drink. What makes it even better? The event is free! Giveaways will be a part of the fun, as well, and include snow experience packages.
Attendees can also embrace the giving spirit of the season by bringing new beanies or new and gently used winter coats. The celebration marks the start of Lee Canyon’s second annual “Spread the Warmth” winter coat and beanie drive, benefiting Project 150. The nonprofit supports more than 6,000 registered and non-registered homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in Southern Nevada year-round. Items can be donated through Friday, Nov. 29.
“The mountains are where everyone, regardless of experience level and age group, can discover adventure,” said Jim Seely, Lee Canyon marketing director, in a press release. “The Pray for Snow party allows winter enthusiasts the chance to reconnect with friends, meet fellow skiers and snowboarders and brings out community together for a great cause.”
Nov. 2 is the last day of Lee Canyon’s season pass summer sale. The resort plans to open for winter on Dec. 6. Guests are also giddy with anticipation for the opening of Hillside Lodge, which the resort says is its biggest undertaking since opening in 1964.
