Nice place to visit in winter. If you can, spend a night there and feel sky mountain feelings embrace you.

Within a short drive of Vegas is the serenity of Mt. Charleston. If you're in Vegas in the summer (you obviously lost a bet) the cool of Mt.Charleston is beyond refreshing but it's refreshing all year long, just for various reasons. Dining, lodging, hiking or...More

We visited Las Vegas in September; temps were definitely high. But we swapped the 95 degree Strip heat for the 75 degree delight of Mount Charleston. Ate at the lodge. Food was good but service was a bit slow. However, taking in the view while...More

Being from the Midwest, I didn’t actually miss the snow but I love seeing it. Always worth a trip up there in the winter to go skiing or sledding. Great trip driving up the mountain year-round with amazing views.

The staff is the third world maybe 2 Americans the rest are from South America/Mexico and Philippines. Bathrooms are like outhouses, the staff has to use them too. I would not eat there after visiting the restrooms. Staff is also miserable looking very depressing.

There may be snow....depending on when you are in the Las Vegas area. It does get enough snow for skiing at Mt Charleston. But you could hike with snowshoes. I suggest just checking the Las Vegas weather and subtract 25 to... More

THE lodge is beautiful and in a great area. I am not sure about accommodations for large groups but I would encourage you to check early since it gets busy. There are other areas but again not sure about large group places.
