Keeping cool high above Las Vegas


View Mt. Charleston, NV – SUNDAY DRIVE in a larger map
Head to the bright lights and alluring attractions of Las Vegas in the wintertime and the snow-covered peak of Mt. Charleston looms over the sunny Strip like a white-topped sentinel. Believe it or not, there is a ski resort up there, as well as a couple of mountain lodges that provide good food and a place to rest your head amid stunning alpine scenery. So, when the heat-soaked pavement of Las Vegas gets to be too much, take a Sunday Drive up into the mountains and inhale that bracing alpine air. After all, while what happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, there is no reason why a Vegas vacation means you have to stay put on the Strip.
