Things can go downhill fast on the Strip, real downhill speed on a real snowy slope in Las Vegas and it’s snow joke, skiing is just another idea from an incentive destination that continues to amaze incentive winners.

Lee Canyon has 30 trails and four lifts — including a handle tow in a tubing area — and is about 50 minutes from the Strip. The ski area isn’t new. It’s been around since the 1960s, when it had a single lift and just a few runs. It’s expanded slowly over the years, and was renamed Lee Canyon last year after formally being known as the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort.

Lee Canyon hangs on to a lot of its Las Vegas identity — even if it feels about as far removed from the Strip as one could imagine.

The run names include Keno, Blackjack, Slot Alley, Jacks, Kings, Queens and, yes, the Strip. It held an Elvis costume contest a couple of years ago to celebrate the King’s birthday in January. It even has, at the base of the Strip, a replica of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign that is seen on the south end of the real Strip.

It also looks and feels like a regular mountain resort. Tall pine trees mark the edges of the runs and temperatures can plummet with the wind. There’s the crunching sound of snowboard edges carving turns in the groomed, packed trails. Some snowboarders make high-flying jumps off ramps set up on the Strip.

As if this wasn’t enough, Vegas also offers Machine Guns Vegas, the only Vegas-lounge experience that lets you fire the kind of kick-ass artillery you’ve seen in the hands of the highly-skilled SEAL and Delta Force teams.

From modern machine guns to historical handguns, you’ll get the real feel of what it’s like to clear a room with just a pull of the trigger. This isn’t a walk-in gun store or dimly-lit shooting gallery. Machine Guns Vegas is a sensory experience that will rock your thrill index with every shot you take.

And if you’re still looking for something to do in Vegas, you could always just head down to the strip. Apparently, that’s quite lively too !!
