Skye Canyon Master Planned Community Named an Official Sponsor of Lee Canyon
Skye Canyon’s residents will take advantage of discounted rates on passes, lift tickets and rentals.
Skye Canyon, a 1,700-acre master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas that is the basecamp for the great outdoors, is a top tier sponsor of Lee Canyon, formally known as the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort. The first partnership of its kind for a master planned development in Las Vegas, all Skye Canyon residents will receive a “Skye Pass” that includes special pricing on Lee Canyon’s lift and snow tubing tickets, equipment rentals, ski passes and lessons, along with summer recreation benefits. The one-year partnership runs through November 2016.
Skye Canyon joins other top-tier Lee Canyon sponsors like GoPro, Spy Optics, Subaru, Under Armour and the U.S. Forest Service. Skye Canyon will also have a presence throughout the resort and will sponsor designated youth and family events during the winter season.
“Skye Canyon is the next generation master planned community where those who enjoy the great outdoors can easily engage in experiences that enrich their lifestyle,” said Garry Goett, CEO of Olympia Companies, developer of Skye Canyon. “We have created a series of on-property amenities that support the values of our residences. With Lee Canyon, a partner who is aligned with our values, we are taking it a step further. We look forward to more partnerships of this nature, and we know it will be a huge benefit for our residents.”
Lee Canyon will have a presence in Skye Center, an 8,142-square-foot home buying center opening March 2016, which will serve as the community hub and include a juice bar, open-air cantina, coffee and wine bar, outdoor patio, fireplace and fire pits, as well as interactive home finding tools. Lee Canyon will also be included in the branding of a vintage Lee Canyon ski lift chair, which will be used as community bench at Skye Center.
“Skye Canyon is a community that embraces our values and shares our love and respect for the outdoors and healthy living,” said Kevin Stickelman, president and general manager for Lee Canyon. “The Skye Pass makes it easier for families to introduce their kids to sports like skiing and snowboarding, and offers the entire family the chance to experience the Spring Mountains recreation opportunities year-round. We welcome Skye Canyon residents into our mountain family.”
Skye Canyon’s homebuilders include Pulte Homes and Woodside Homes, which debuted models in August. Century Communities will launch its models in January 2016 and Pardee Homes will unveil its community in mid 2016.
