MT. ROSE SKI RESORT
MT. ROSE is located between Reno and Lake Tahoe. It is highly visible from anywhere in Reno but many of the obvious "runs" that you see are avalanche chutes and not ski terrain!
Just 11 Miles north of Lake Tahoe's North Shore See map of Ski Areas
Rose is the highest resort at Tahoe's north end. The area is noted for excellent snow quality, great views, sunshine, excellent lift rates, fun activities, and consistent runs. From various locations at the top, you can see Reno, Washoe Lake, and Lake Tahoe. Rose is also notable for numerous discount offers. In fact, there is a serious discount lift price for every weekday such as Two-for-Tuesdays, Ladies'-Day-Thursdays, and so on. There is even a Drag Queen Day in March - any guy dressed in drag gets in for the Ladies' Day ticket price of $15! Naturally, there are drag races that day!
Mt. Rose has two sides or faces. The "Rose" side faces north and is to the right in the image below. The terrain is predominantly strong intermediate with some excellent beginner runs to the far right. The "Slide" side faces east and is on the left side in this image. It has a larger portion of expert terrain and some serious bump runs. In between the two sides is "no-access" series of steep avalanche chutes - see the Closed Area in the center of this artist image.
There is a road to each side. The Slide side is the first one accessed if you drive up from Reno. If you are coming from Incline Village and Tahoe, you will get to the Rose side first. There are generous parking lots at both entrances.
Mt. Rose's typical season is early November to mid May.
In this artist's image, you face south-west showing the two sides of Rose. The town of Incline Village is 11 miles (18km) behind the mountain. Reno is behind you. For Mt. Rose's map location, click on the ski map link below.
