LAS VEGAS (May 20, 2020) –Lee Canyon announces that it will not be launching summer operations on Memorial Day weekend this year as it has in previous years. Working with the US Forest Service and following local and national guidelines to keep guests and staff safe, resort officials expect summer operations to gear up within Nevada’s Phase 2 of reopening.
“Lee Canyon believes that outdoor recreation is essential for good health. We are working hard to create a safe and fun summertime environment for our guests, and will move forward when the time is right,” said Jim Seely, Lee Canyon’s director of marketing. “While trails in the Spring Mountains are open, we echo the directive of the US Forest Service, and encourage hikers to maximize social distancing, and recreate responsibly and close to home.”
Yesterday, the US Forest Service announced it would not open its campgrounds, group day-use sites, and visitor centers in Nevada over the Memorial Day weekend. For more information on USFS recreation closures and fire restrictions, please visit www.fs.usda.gov/htnf.
