Lake Tahoe Skiing: Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe
From Tahoe’s highest base, skiers and boarders launch nearly 1,800 vertical feet in 3.5 minutes. The reward? Panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and northern Nevada.
The real payoff begins as you descend into 1,200 acres of some of the Sierra’s best powder. The recent opening of the Chutes puts Mt. Rose in a whole new league for steep terrain. Find out for yourself about Tahoe’s best kept secret.
Mt. Rose is the closest resort to the Reno/Tahoe International Airport, and just 25 minutes from Reno’s 17,000 hotel rooms. Mt. Rose is a good choice for the first and last day of your Lake Tahoe vacation.
