The conventional wisdom for a trip to Las Vegas is to not take more money than you are prepared to lose at the casinos. But if you have the bucks, there are plenty of luxury accommodations, side trips, sports, fine dining, and shopping to do. Like a private skiing expedition to the secluded Ruby Mountains via helicopter.
If you have the money and enjoy adventure, you can escape from your Las Vegas trip to the nearby Ruby Mountains. Joe Royer has led Helicopter Skiing adventures in the snow covered mountains since 1977. The Ruby Mountains are a little known area of Nevada with 10 peaks above 10,000 feet. The secluded spot features powdered slopes and alpine lakes.
Royer offers a 3 day package. This includes helicopter lifts up the mountain for at least 20 ski runs. The package includes fine dining, luxury lodging and hiking tours. The company also offers private guide service.
That trip will cost you $4,650 for three days. But there’s plenty of things you can spend even more serious money on in this list from Housely.
