Very close to Vegas but its not worth the 50 dollar lift tickets. The half day lift tickets are only 5 dollars cheaper. Ridiculous. The runs were all chopped up from skiers. The food isnt great for the prices they charge for it. Very crowded on the weekends. They should give the locals some kind of discount. I snowboard every weekend in Brianhead and its ten times better then Mt charleston. I rather drive 3 hours more to board in a nice spot. I will only go back to Mt Charleston if the lift ticket price drops to 25 dollars a day because thats all it is worth.
