Snowstorm Hits Las Vegas

It is being called the snowiest December that Las Vegas has ever seen. Officially, 3.6 inches of snow were recorded making it the biggest snowstorm to hit Las Vegas since 1979.

The winter storm dumped more than a foot of fresh snow at the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort on Mt. Charleston. Officials recommend chains, snow tires or four-wheel drive when heading up the mountain.
Numerous roads around Southern Nevada were closed to traffic, including I-15 which did not reopen until nearly noon on Thursday. All roads were re-opened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
