Lee Canyon Ski Resort, Las Vegas

When you think about all the activities you could possibly do in Las Vegas, spending a day at a ski resort, isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Imagine lounging poolside at one of the Strip hotels, and then in under an hour's drive you're skiing or snowboarding down a double diamond hill in Lee Canyon. Alas, that's Vegas in all it's diversity.

With an average annual snowfall of 161 inches and over 300 days of sunshine, these aren't the worst conditions you could pick for a ski resort. Lee Canyon is located in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and opens early December to April for the winter season.

Las Vegas Real Estate News for September 2018

North Las Vegas Growing by Leaps and Bounds

North Las Vegas real estate was once a frontrunner in the housing crisis of ten years ago. Today the community is full of new growth, new construction and increased housing prices. In fact, prices are growing so quickly that many home buyers have been completely priced out of a once affordable market. New developers such as Pardee Homes and Lennar are definitely focusing on the higher end housing market with their exciting new developments in North Las Vegas.

The first half of 2018 was a bit of a head scratcher for Las Vegas real estate. Sales were sluggish at first, then suddenly, no one could keep up. Prices increased considerably, properties started selling in record time, but as with previous months, inventory remained low. Sellers are either cautious, content to wait, or both. I'm not sure why, because this is a seller's market one could only wish for.
