The sprinkling of powder on the Spring Mountains and the recent dip in temperature made for a picture-perfect setting for the first Pray for Snow party on Saturday, Nov. 19 at Skye Center. About 250 people of all ages joined the fun in hopes of encouraging the snow gods to give Lee Canyon a prosperous winter season. Magically, by Monday morning, snowflakes started to fall on the mountain.
The Pray for Snow party was hosted in partnership with Lee Canyon, our inaugural partner in the Skye Pass program, which offers Skye Canyon residents lift ticket and season pass discounts. Lee Canyon had a booth set up and made it easy for guests to purchase and pick up their season passes. (For updates on Lee Canyon’s opening day, visit leecanyonlv.com.)
The party started at 3 p.m. when local band Street Folk started playing everyone’s favorite covers. After sunset guests warmed-up by enjoying gourmet hot chili and hot chocolate around fire pits on the patio of Skye Center. Just a Bite provided everyone who attended the event a boxed s’mores kit (we noticed many people didn’t wait to get home to open up their treats!)
Party guests who toured model homes in Skye Canyon by Century Communities, Pulte Homes, Woodside Homes, and Pardee Homes were entered into a raffle where prizes included a Lee Canyon Snow Experience package, Lee Canyon’s snow cabana (including a $300 food and beverage credit), Salomon skis, a Never Summer snowboard and Skye Canyon branded North Face jackets.
Guests who made a donation to Operation Warmheart, the event’s non-profit partner, received a raffle ticket for a second drawing for a 49” LG HD TV courtesy of CenturyLink. Over $1,400 was raised and will be used towards providing 500 turkey dinners to airmen and their families who are going through hardships this Thanksgiving.
Skye Canyon was designed to create a sense of community by offering opportunities for people to meet their neighbors and develop new friendships. And at Pray for Snow that’s exactly what happened.
