This is just north of town.
All things considered, Vegas is a good jumping off point for some great skiing. Lee is an hour, Brian Head is 3 hrs., Mammoth is 5 hrs., Alta/Bird is 6 hrs. (Add time as necessary for everything else in the greater SLC area), everything around Tahoe is 7-8 hrs., Sun Valley is 9 hrs., Jackson Hole is 10 hrs., Aspen/Snowmass is 9 hrs., Telluride is 9 hrs., Taos is 10-1/2 hrs.
To put it in perspective, Taos is 10-1/2 hrs. from my present location, A-Basin is 12-1/2 hrs., Aspen/Snowmass is 14-1/2 hrs., Alta/Bird is 18-1/2 hrs., Jackson Hole is 19-1/2 hrs.
This is definitely a location upgrade in my opinion. Pretty much everything I love to ski is an easy day drive. It’s also something that is being done for my wife’s health as the desert climate is easy on her rheumatoid arthritis. We also have 4 grandkids and a bunch of friends there as Suzanne was stationed there for 20 yrs. with the USAF.
