I then headed to Mt. Charleston by hopping on the 95 Veterans Memorial Hwy, to the 157 (Kyle Canyon Rd), and up to the resort. It may be only 47 miles from Red Rock, but yes, it's a full blown ski resort, with mountains 11,916 feet in altitude. This is another amazing ride, but instead of red rocks, I am now rolling by white snow. With four lifts, the resort generally opens November through April, depending on conditions. Just don’t get caught here at night on a bike; it can easily get down into the 20s. But it's worth it - -the views are endless, and the roads are long sweeping turns interrupted by tight twisties.
