All of those snow dances are paying off and it's time to dust off your gear because ski season is here!!!
The Mt. Rose Ski Resort is now open for the 2017 -2018 season.
Mt. Rose is the closest ski resort to Reno. Just 25 minutes away. A local favorite for years. Last year, the Lake Tahoe area ski resort received the most snow in North America with over 700 inches of snow. Located on the Mt. Rose Highway with a base that is at 8,260 feet, it's the highest of all the Lake Tahoe ski resorts. The mountain is situated perfectly when big storms hit.
The beginners Wizzard chairlift is now open 7 days a week, from 9 am to 4 pm. Lift tickets are available for $59, ages 16 and older, and $29 for children ages 15 and under. Passes are available for purchase and ticket prices will change as additional lifts open.
The Lodgepole Cafe and The Timbers Bar are open daily at the Main Lodge. Equipment rentals and ski lessons will not be offered until more terrain opens. For more information about resort services, conditions or to purchase tickets or passes, visit skirose.com.
