Ski Resort Donating Money to Mountain Firefighters

The Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort is doing what it can to help the crews dedicated to protecting them from future fires.

The resort will be donating 20 percent from the sale of tickets for the scenic chairlift rides to the Mt. Charleston Volunteer Fire Department from now through Labor Day.

The chairlift rides are available Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and are $10 for all riders.

The Carpenter 1 fire forced the resort to shutdown for several days, but it reopened July 19. Normal operations are now underway, including chairlift rides, disc golf, hiking lawn games and camping. The Big Horn Grill restaurant and Bristlecone Bar will be open during normal summer business hours.

“Though the fire was miles from the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort and we were not affected, we recognize how critical it is that our mountain community be prepared for natural disasters,” said Kevin Stickelman, LVSSR’s president and general manager.

Several events were canceled because of the fire and have been rescheduled. To see the complete list, go to skilasvegas.com.
