More than 500 skiers, snowboarders, and outdoor enthusiasts gathered at Skye Center on Saturday, Nov. 3 to summon the snow gods at Lee Canyon’s third annual après ski-themed Pray for Snow party at Skye Center. It was a special day for reconnecting with old friends, making new ones and supporting our community.
Pray for Snow kicked off Lee Canyon’s Spread the Warmth winter coat and jacket drive benefitting Project 150. Skye Canyon is matching every jacket donation with a $25 gift to the non-profit, up to $5,000. Project 150 provides much-needed resources to teens in need throughout the valley. Winter coat donations are accepted at Skye Center through Saturday, Nov. 17. Other drop-off locations include REI in Summerlin, Power & Sun, and the Burton Outlet Store in DTLV.
Pray for Snow party-goers enjoyed gourmet sliders and tacos – and a few craft beers on the Skye Center patio, while enjoying sweeping mountain views. While people socialized by the outdoor fire pits and listened to husband and wife duo Sunrise Sunset, kids got into the winter spirit by creating edible snowmen and drinking unicorn hot chocolate.
Pray for Snow’s vendor village featured outdoor-related nonprofits and merchants that helped to get everyone in the winter spirit. And because no one wants to wait in line on a powder day, skiers and snowboarders picked up season passes for Lee Canyon booth, and individuals who wanted to purchase a season pass did so as well.
It wouldn’t be a party without prizes! Pray for Snow raffle winners walked away with prizes like Skye Canyon North Face jackets, Lee Canyon 2018-19 lift tickets and a Snow Cabana Day, Lee Canyon style that includes a day at the snow cabana, six lift tickets and a $300 food and beverage credit.
As a partner in our Skye Pass program, Lee Canyon offers residents special rates on season passes, one-day lift tickets and tubing. Lee Canyon also spoils our residents by providing reserved parking at the mountain, something that will be needed if the snow gods answer our prayers.
