Snowboarding an hour away from Las Vegas?

So my buddies and I are heading up to Vegas next month for some gambling action and one insisted that there's a spot where you can go snowboarding that's only about 45 minutes to an hour away. A shuttle is even provided to get you there and back.

Has anyone heard about this or done this themselves? I'm not expecting much but it'll be a good break from gambling if it's even halfway decent.

Any input would be appreciated.

Mt Charleston is where the Las Vegas Ski area is located. It's got some decent terrain from what I've seen and it is about an hour from Vegas. Probably worth your effort.

Kill u're frickin awesome. Thx for the link bro. I'm checking it out now and I've forwarded it to my buddies.

Snowboarding during the day and then Black Jack tables at night.
Once we don't end up like the Hangover it'll be a great trip

Wow that's really pretty Sno.

I wasn't expecting anything much but now I'm getting pumped. Kinda weird that I've been to Vegas several times and never once heard about snowboarding in that area.
I'll make sure to watch out for avalanches though.
