It's the only thing around Vegas
Icy, Poor Snow Conditions, Very Small
This is the only resort within a short distance of Vegas. So it is for sure better than nothing. The fact that there can be skiing in the middle of the wasteland that is the Mojave desert.....is pretty awesome in the first place. Having said that, the resort is very small, and I don't think that will be changing.....since Mt Charleston is pretty well protected. What is there is old, kinda dingy, there are only a few short runs, and the snow conditions are horrible. Like some other posters have mentioned, it is extremely Icy, and it makes skiing or riding here pretty bad. But when I was living in Vegas, I was greatful to have it close by. So my feelings are really mixed about this place.........
