Extreme Sports Tips (20)

Indoor Rock Climbing

The Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian has an indoor rock climbing wall, which is a great place for beginners to give climbing a try. The rock wall is about 40 feet high and has a couple of routes, all of which are pretty basic. But I'd recommend it to anyone who always wanted to try rock climbing.

You are required to sign up for a lesson with an instructor to do this activity and there is, of course, a charge for that. But with the price of admission, you get access to the fitness center facilities for a day.

Equipment All equipment is provided with the lesson. You need to wear comfortable clothing.

Outdoor rock climbing

Red Rock Canyon, which is about 30 minutes north of Las Vegas, is home to some great climbing routes. Because a number of these routes are beginner level, its a great place to learn to climb. Plus, Red Rock Canyon has some of the most beautiful scenery in the area, so its a great excursion for climbers and non climbers alike.

Equipment American Alpine Guides offers rock climbing classes ranging from beginner to advanced. They will pick up from any hotel on the Strip as well.

Their # is 360 671 1505

Gamble With Your Life

Skydiving at Boulder City - who claim to be the #1 first-timer skydiver centre in the US - is certainly an experice I'll never forget!!

Go on, take to the skies, and fall out of them. Gravity rule.

Video & photo options are available!

Equipment All equipment supplied - but take sturdy trainers.

There are many skate parks through out the city for the kids to use. Many of the parks have classes on how to grind and 360 and do all of the other tricks.

Some of the parks can be very busy around 4 pm and you can find some real good skaters.

Equipment The parks are open to skate boards, roller blades, roller skates and bikes.

Red Rocks National Conservation Area - Climbing!

Just 30-40 (depending on traffic) minutes from the center of casino town is an amazing rock climbing area, containing everything from overbolted short sport climbs to long multi-pitch traditional routes.

Equipment Rock climbing gear, sunscreen and a good guide to climbing there! We used the Falcon Guide "Rock Climbing Red Rocks" by Todd Swain (available at climbing stores or on the internet from on-line climbing stores).

If you search on the internet you can find many personal web sites which reference this giant area, and explain much more about it than is possible here. There is enough climbing to keep you busy for years!

lot's of sporting activities in vegas!

vegas has alot of sporting activities to cater to anyone..bungee jumping, sky diving, rock climbing, etc....
if you wanna catch a baseball game we have a triple a minor league team affiliated with the los angeles dodgers our las vegas 51's... take a bike ride through red rock canyon navagating the scenic loop.. but my favorite sporting past time has to be fishing, and we have plenty to offer in that department.. 45 minutes north of las vegas is tulee springs, they have 3 lakes offering trout fishing and bass. lake mead offers a few charter fishing trips, but do it on your own it's more adventurous that way!

Indoor Skydiving

This is so much fun. You feel like you are floating. This is a picture of my brother on his turn in the tunnel.

Equipment Remove all jewlery, watches, and anything in your pockets or it becomes a flying weapon.
