LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- All that snow on Mount Charleston means a busy weekend ahead. Metro police tell us they expect thousands of visitors to the mountain Saturday and Sunday. News 3's Denise Rosch spent the day in Kyle Canyon and has information on what you need to know, before you go.

There's no question it's a beautiful time to visit Mt. Charleston. But every winter police have a serious issue with people parking where they shouldn't.

This morning Metro officers were out putting up no parking signs along state route 157, which is the road through Kyle Canyon.

The problem is the road is narrow, and there has to be enough room for fire trucks and other emergency vehicles to get through and parking fines by the way, start at $190.

Officers also say it's just not safe to park and play along the side of the road.
Even today, a lot of folks are up enjoying the snow and Sgt. Eric Fricker says while everyone is welcome, please be careful.

“There's two designated snow play areas. One at foxtail, one is the meadow. We ask them to play over there, that's in Lee Canyon, it's a great drive over there,” Fricker says. “And normally Kyle Canyon is for scenic drives or if you want to go to the restaurants it's a lot easier and a lot safer.”
