The soaring peaks and red-rock lava flows of the River Mountains. The snaking gravel paths that form a ghostly memorial to a Hoover Dam railroad. The rippling waters of Lake Mead. At All Mountain Cyclery, these local sights headline daylong bike and kayak tours of the wilderness surrounding Boulder City. Located only a 30-minute drive from the famed Las Vegas strip and 10 minutes from Lake Mead, the cyclery rents out Specialized bikes and sells two-wheelers by big other big names, including KHS and Redline. With a fresh set of pedals beneath their feet, cyclists can confidently cruise down the manmade Bootleg Canyon single track. Gravity tows bikes down the steep path at full throttle, leaving riders free to focus on navigating the challenging terrain and throwing their sneakers at distracting birds.
After every session on the range, free snacks and refreshments await guests in Green Valley's Cease Fire lounge, a cozy space equipped with a popcorn machine and large-screen television. In fact, that's one several at Green Valley's clubhouse, which sports three more large-screens, plus a 70-inch television for movie nights or sporting events. Elsewhere, visitors can gather in the game room for rounds of billiards, shuffleboard, and pinball. Besides its recreational offerings, Green Valley's monthly classes and events include more gun-focused sessions, such as "target bowling," during which participants fire at rows of bowling pins.

Vegas Valley Gymnastics Center hopes to inspire confidence in children as well as adults, helping them hone their gymnastics prowess and mental focus with a variety of classes. Students of all levels?both recreational gymnasts and aspiring competitors?practice their skills at a fully equipped facility with uneven bars, a sprung floor, balance beams, and other apparatus. Students learn basic gymnastic skills that include skills like beam, floor, bars and vault, pommel horse, parallel bars, high bar, floor, and rings. Boys, girls, and tots classes are available.
Beyond gymnastics, the facility's varied schedule features dance lessons, cheer classes, and tumbling classes, which cover the fundamental techniques used in everything from cheerleading to court-jester internships.

From wheels to several styles of bikes, and helmets to car racks, Pro Cyclery houses a wide display of products that meet every cyclist’s needs. And if you’re looking for the low-slung space, just keep an eye out for the iron-welded bike frame that protrudes from the roof – or the various colorful cycling banners and posters that hang from the windows.
Rising above the Markagunt Plateau like the ramming prow of an ancient oared ship, Brian Head Peak commands the surrounding landscape as the highest point in Iron County. Originally dubbed Monument Peak because of its looming height, unique shape, and the 19th century's superstitions against building actual monuments, the peak now presides over a namesake resort, a 660-acre spread with the highest base elevation in Utah and all the great snow that comes with it. But although the winter snow is cold and dry—its average moisture content is just 4%—the resort isn't just a one-season playground. And its climatic adaptability means that even though Brian Head Resort is located on a national scenic byway within hours of five national parks, its eight lifts remain the most enticing way to explore the outdoors.
In addition to 71 ski trails, the resort's slopes—divided between Brian Head Peak and the slightly smaller Navajo Peak—offer features such as the bag jump, which allows guests to try out jumps, tricks, and homemade parachutes safely before touching down on a giant inflatable pillow. Regular night skiing opens up lower slopes for evening runs while those tired of shredding can hit up the tubing lanes for carefree descents. Rentals outfit casual downhillers with all the equipment they need, complementing private and group lessons for all ages on Navajo Peak. The resort's experienced professionals also cultivate the next generation of skiers by combining lessons with daycare for wee ones aged 3 and older.
As the seasons change, the melting snow exposes Brian Head Resort’s summer identity as a bustling hub for hikers, mountain bikers, and disc golfers. Views of towering red rocks abound as guests ascend the resort’s chairlift, from which they can shred down to the base by bike or enjoy the scenery during a more leisurely hike. For bikers, trails shaped by natural terrain share the mountain with terrain parks, where they can perform grinds, stalls, and airborne acrobatics. An 18-hole disc golf course descends from the summit to the base, covering a total of roughly six miles, the length of a squirrel marathon.
