Skye Canyon is on the move! As we approach our second anniversary, we look back at many happy memories like our homeowners creating friendships with neighbors during adventurous resident events and thousands of people from all over Las Vegas gathering at Skye Canyon Park for Fit Lives Here festivities. Our homebuilders dazzled the public at every First Look event, revealing their take on the indoor-outdoor living style that is synonymous with Skye Canyon’s unique lifestyle. But that was just the beginning; we have a lot of things happening in 2018 that you will not want to miss.

Starting with Fit Fest….

Fit Fest, our annual fitness and healthy living celebration, is Saturday, March 10 and is a family-friendly event that is open to the public. The day kicks off with the third annual Skye Canyon 8K Trail Mix and 5K Road Race at 9 a.m. Runners and walkers of all ages and ability levels are welcome to join in on the 5K course that travels through Skye Canyon’s neighborhoods and the 8K trail race that shares the same start but then ventures off onto our community’s dirt trails.

Fit Fest activities start at 9:30 am and include fitness classes, chef demonstrations from award-winning chef Will Staten, who among his many accolades, was a finalist on Fox’s MasterChef. Chef Staten will dazzle the crowd as he prepares Cajun inspired culinary creations along with other signature dishes.

Fit Fest also includes food trucks and fun children’s activities like a rock climbing wall, inflatable obstacle course, and Star Nursey will teach kids how to start their own vegetable garden. The active lifestyle expo features favorite brands like Whole Foods, who is hosting a build your own trail mix station, Lorna Jane, Doterra Essential Oils, Mad Macro, and many others.

Our non-profit partner is Create a Change Now, a local charity that educates at-risk children about health and nutrition. Create a Change Now will receive a portion of the race and Fit Fest proceeds so they can continue the work that they do in the Las Vegas Valley.

Phase II is Here!

Skye Canyon’s Phase II homebuilders have a busy year lined up as eight of the 11 neighborhoods are expected to open in 2018. Phase II includes homes by Lennar Homes, Richmond American Homes, Pardee Homes, Pulte Homes, and Woodside Homes. Skye Canyon’s homebuilders will continue to design houses that feature indoor-outdoor living spaces that have become a hallmark of Skye Canyon. The 214-acre Phase II development will feature a two-acre park, a network of walking trails that are accessible from each neighborhood, and designated bike lanes for those who want to spend time outdoors.

Shopping, Anyone?

This summer Las Vegas’ first Smith’s Marketplace will open in the Skye Canyon Marketplace. The 123,000 square-foot store will include a full-sized Smith’s grocery store along with 60,000 square-feet of household and décor items, family apparel, dine-in or take-out meals, and a drive-through pharmacy.

School is in Session!

The Somerset Academy Skye Canyon campus, a K-8 tuition-free charter school, will open its doors for the start of the 2018-19 school year. The college prep school’s curriculum includes art, STEM, music, foreign language, physical education, as well as enrichment courses, clubs, and sports.
