Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort offers a way for visitors to get from the town to the resort without renting a car for the 47-mile drive. The ski bus runs daily with pickups at two locations in town.

The 50-passenger coach picks up skiers and snowboarders at 7:15 a.m. at Whole Foods Market in Town Square or 8 a.m. at the Lodge at Tenaya. Round-trip bus transportation costs $20 per person.

Those visiting Las Vegas can also link up the city shuttle service to connect with the ski bus. City shuttles pick up riders at more than 60 hotels in town, including the top hotels on the strip. Round-trip rates, which include the bus transportation to the resort, run $35-45, depending on hotel location.

Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort offers rentals for those traveling without their gear. The resort also caters to jibbers with its Darkside Terrain Parks and runs beginner programs for those learning to ski or snowboard. 

The ski bus returns to town at the end of the ski day, departing when the lifts shut down at 4 p.m. It reaches the Lodge at Tenaya at 5 p.m. and the Town Square around 6 p.m.

Reservations are required for the bus to the ski slopes. Online reservations made with credit or debit cards are encouraged, but phone reservations are also accepted.
