LAS VEGAS (AUGUST 21, 2023) Lee Canyon announced today that the resort will remain closed until at least Friday, Aug. 25, in line with the US Forest Service’s closure of the Spring Mountain National Recreation Area (SMNRA). The weekend brought heavy rain to Lee Canyon, with Tropical Storm Hilary dropping 9.8 inches. Once the closure is lifted, Lee Canyon’s personnel can properly assess the storm’s impact on the resort and determine if remaining shuttered is necessary.
“Lee Canyon received a tremendous amount of rain in a short period. Our crews are preparing to thoroughly study the storm’s impact on our terrain”, said Dan Hooper, Lee Canyon’s general manager. “Lee Canyon’s priority is to ensure public safety. We appreciate the community’s patience as we move through this experience.”
