If what went on in Vegas in the last 36 hours is any indication of what the pending ski season holds, we better buckle up. Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort, which was recently granted a permit for a substantial expansion by the Forest Service, was expecting around 6” of snow as part of a rather typical southwestern winter system. Well, turns out that wasn’t real accurate. By the middle of the day Thursday, the mountain was closing in on 16” and the white out was showing no signs of relinquishing its grip on the Spring Mountains. Expectations are that the resort may see up to 32” by Friday morning.
Not bad for a desert.
