Snow spotted on Spring Mountains

The Spring Mountains saw their first snowfall of the season early Monday morning. The National Weather Services said the snow only fell above 9,000 feet.

The highest point on Mt. Charleston is 11,900 feet.

It is possible more snow will fall with the next storm but it isn't expected to stay at lower elevations for at least a month.

Ski Resort Not Impacted by Mt. Charleston Fire

Ski Resort Not Impacted by Mt. Charleston Fire

The Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort will be open Thursday and through the holiday weekend despite the Carpenter One fire burning on Mount Charleston.

The resort offers a break from the heat in the Las Vegas valley with scenic chairlift rides, lawn games and live music. There is also overnight RV and tent camping.

According to the resort, it is working closely with the U.S. Forest Service to monitor the fire, but they both believe it does not pose a threat to Lee Canyon.

The fire is currently burning on the western side of the mountain. However, the resort will change plans if the fire impacts the ski resort.
