If you selected Free Shipping at check out, we will mail your season pass directly to you. Otherwise, you can have your pass printed in the pass office. We highly encourage you to come pick up your pass before the season starts as the printing process can take some time.

Do I need tire chains?

Chains are usually only required right after or during a snow storm, We always suggest having chains with you just in case of heavy snow or road restrictions. You can find out about any road closures or restrictions at or by calling 511.

How do I choose the correct tire chains?

How far is Lee Canyon from Vegas?

We are a quick 45-60 minute drive from Vegas depending on traffic. 50 miles from Downtown!

Is there a parking fee to enter the resort?

It is free to enter during summer operations, but there is a $10 parking fee during the winter season. Lee Canyon season pass holders have their fees included in the purchase of their passes. Purchase a pass.

How is the traffic?

Most days traffic is light and the drive is easy. During the Winter Holidays (Dec. 20th – Jan. 6th) and after it snows the Spring Mountains experience a huge influx of traffic. The many cars trying to see the snow often creates traffic backups and gridlocks. We HIGHLY suggest pre-booking your passes in advance and getting here as EARLY as possible during these peak visitation times.

Where is the closest place to stay?

Most visitors stay in the Las Vegas hotels and make the short drive up to the mountain. The Retreat on Charleston Peak is the closest hotel and offers a beautiful mountain setting in contrast to the Strip Hotel/Casinos. See more available options.

Do you have cross-country skiing?

We do not. We’re not aware of any official area to cross-country ski in the Spring Mountains. We would suggest reaching out to US Forrest Service to see if it’s permitted in the areas around the resort.

Do you have snow tubing?

Unfortunately, we do not. Tubing is not permitted on any of Lee Canyon’s managed areas.
