Adventure to occur during a future Summer or Fall.
Without doubt, this is the most direct, steep approach from Lee Canyon to Kyle Canyon.
As you’re looking up from the ski area in Lee Canyon, you see Lee Peak and, to the left (East) a prominent plateau. The Gradual Mid-Ridge Approach from Lee to Kyle Canyon begins at Upper Lee Meadow and summits on the left (East) side of that plateau and there connects with the Mt. Charleston upper North Loop Trail.
On the other hand, this adventure will begin by ascending the Eastern ski run in Lee Canyon. This is the ski run with a lift that operates year-round and throughout the Summer months. The route will continue beyond the summit of the ski run and summit the Lee/Kyle Canyon upper rim on the right (West) side of the prominent plateau mentioned above.
The views straight down into the ski area and beyond will be spectacular.
As you can see, this adventure is still in progress, but will be documented here once complete!
Take Hwy 95 North from Las Vegas. Turn left onto Lee Canyon Road (Hwy 156). Continue on Lee Canyon Road about 18 miles until that road ends at the Lee Canyon Ski Area. Find parking at or near the Lee Canyon Ski Area.
