Breaking News

Communication is key, especially in times of crisis. Making sure people have the right information at the right time can be the difference in the decisions they make and the actions they take.
Knowing that employees, guests and the Las Vegas community depend on us for resort information and news, here at Lee Canyon, we take our reputation as a reliable source of information seriously. When COVID-19 spread to Las Vegas, we kept in close communication with employees using our suite of communication methods which include meetings, email, newsletters and an intranet.

A Family Affair

POWDR businesses are often like families who have each other's backs and support each other through good times and bad. Frequently, that connection can trickle down to individual employees.  
A staff member here at Lee Canyon recently witnessed an example of this in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Feel Good Fridays

Every Friday in March Lee Canyon hosts 'Feel Good Fridays', a fundraiser supporting High Fives Foundation.

The fundraiser offers discounted lift tickets, with a portion of each ticket donated directly to the non-profit. High Fives Foundation is a non-profit whose mission is to focus on preventing life-changing injuries, and provide resources and hope if they happen.

Spread the Warmth

Each year Lee Canyon partners up with the community to put on a clothing drive benefiting Project 150.

Project 150 is a local non-profit whose mission is, "to offer support and services to homeless high school students in the Southern Nevada area so they can stay in school through graduation and build a successful future."

Chris Ruby Cup

In 2014, 20-year-old Chris Ruby, a Las Vegas resident and avid snowboarder, tragically passed away.

Chris was an organ donor, and while this tragic loss deeply impacted our community, his decision to be an organ donor ended up saving over 90 lives. To cherish Chris's legacy and impact, an all-ages ski and snowboard race dubbed the 'Chris Ruby Cup' is put on each winter to support organ donation awareness.

Kindred Spirits

Like many POWDR businesses, Lee Canyon had a plethora of leftover food when we shuttered operations on March 15. And as a small player in the Las Vegas community, particularly compared to the casinos, we wanted to identify the right organization to which to give it. We found that in the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY), a non-profit that provides Southern Nevada’s homeless youth support to rebuild their lives.
