Lee Canyon announces today it is extending its summer season through Sunday, Sept. 13. Traditionally, Labor Day concludes the resort’s summer operations. Summer hours are Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., though Lee Canyon will be open on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7. The bonus summer weekend means people have more time to pick up winter season passes and another opportunity to stay cool as the valley heats up. 

This weekend, temperatures are expected to exceed 110 degrees in some parts of the valley. Lee Canyon’s base operations are at 8,510 above sea level, so visitors can expect temperatures are up to 30 degrees cooler than the valley and should dress accordingly.

Summer activities include disc golf, hiking, scenic chairlift rides, archery, and skateboarding. The deck at Hillside Lodge will be open, along with Lee Canyon’s coffeehouse, Brewin Burro. Guests can also enjoy Bighorn Grill’s full summer menu; all dining will be on the patio, where guests can enjoy the changing of the seasons. 

“Because of COVID, people in Las Vegas are venturing outdoors more than ever before, so we’ve seen a lot of new faces at Lee Canyon this summer,” says Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s director of marketing. “We are happy to offer an extra weekend of fun but also urge our passholders to take advantage of pre-season winter pass pickup, which adds another layer of safety to the outdoor experience come winter.” 

Seely explains that people who take advantage of this opportunity to pick up passes early can head straight to the lifts on opening day. Lee Canyon’s winter season opening day is slated for Friday, Dec. 4, weather permitting.
