Curt Sheffield, LVSSR’s director of business affairs, hopes the Ski Vegas Ski Bus will be “another way in which we hope to encourage locals and tourists to enjoy the pristine environment of the LVSSR by eliminating the stress of driving during bad weather and reducing congestion on the mountain’s roads.” He adds, “Our guests can enjoy a full day of skiing or boarding and still be back in town in time for dinner and a show. Now that’s the ultimate Las Vegas experience.”
Skiers and boarders can also opt to take the City Shuttle, which makes pickup stops at local hotels and drops off guests at designated Ski Bus stops. Larger groups can book the shuttle directly to LVSSR. Unlike the Ski Vegas Ski Bus, reservations for the City Shuttle are mandatory for individuals and groups of all sizes and can be made online at www.skilasvegas.com or by calling the Ski Vegas city office at 702-645-2754 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
