  • An amazing place, where no one believes in a desert climate of Las Vegas as you can see snow. We rented a car for just one day, in our hotel and went toward the MOUNT CHARLESTON. All very simple and easy to reach. Upon arriving I was having a little precipitation of snow, or be anything dangerous. It was all very beautiful and different. I highly recommend this tour if you are with days available.

  • This place is fantastic if you are looking for contact with nature in Vegas. I was at Lee Canyon ski resort in Mount Charleston, and is really fascinating!

  • Well worth meeting Mount Charleston, is more or less 50 km from Las Vegas, super fast to get. At the end of the year is more beautiful with the snow.
