General Information

Description - Sitting in the eastern Sierra and starting at an elevation of 8,260 feet, Mt. Rose has the highest base elevation of any Lake Tahoe ski resort, promising good snow conditions even on warm spring days. Mt. Rose is also the closest of the Lake Tahoe area ski resorts to Reno, only 22 miles away.

Attractions - A new high-speed quad whisks visitors from the main lodge to the top of Mt. Rose. Once at the top, skiers and snowboarders have almost 1,000 acres of terrain, 43 trails and numerous glades open to them. The summit provides outstanding views of Lake Tahoe to the west and the state of Nevada to the east.

Recreation - Mt. Rose provides almost 900 acres of terrain for skiing and snowboarding.

Climate - Changeable weather conditions are common in the Lake Tahoe Basin throughout the year. Winter storms may occur from September through June, with heavy snow accumulations likely. Many of the ski resorts expect an average of over 450 inches of snow annually and can stay open until June. Sunny, summer skies may cloud over quickly with thundershowers, catching some people by surprise. Weather may also vary or change rapidly from lake-level (6,225 ft) to mountain peaks (10,880 ft).

Location - Mt. Rose is located on the Mt. Rose Highway (State Hwy. 431), about 22 miles from downtown Reno and 25 minutes from the Reno/Tahoe International Airport. Mt. Rose is also very close to Lake Tahoe's North Shore, just 11 miles from Incline Village.
