Mt Rose has the steepest terrain in all of the Tahoe area. The Chutes has a 53 degree pitch run and it is gnarly! High elevation gets a bit better snow than some other resorts in the area but it is in the "banana belt" of the area too. It will get dumps but also can have some dry ... More

Mount rose is awesome. There are great advantages to having the highest base elevation on tahoe. Great snow early in the season. I wish I it was a bit easier to get up the mountain ... More

Great bang for the buck. Conveniently looked near Reno, NV that has many reasonable dining and lodging options. Not too busy compared to some of the popular resorts, but offered great condition for riding. Multiple terrain parks that offer a challenge for all level of skiers ... More

I absolutely love Mt Rose... Amazing snow, conditions, and views. Close to Reno and Tahoe. Awesome staff and they really take care of the locals and passholders. None of the overpriced corporate feeling you get (nearly) anyplace else at Tahoe.

The end of the year they offer great deals. They offer a 4 person all day ski lift pass for only $100! It is a great place for beginners because they provide about 4 or 5 ski lift with different difficulties. The gift shop and restuarant is a great attraction with plenty of gifts ... More

Mt. Rose isn't as glitzy as a lot of Tahoe ski resorts, but it has good snow and good terrain. The Chutes are about as tough as anything in-bounds in California, and can vary a lot based on conditions. The backside has some great wide-open bowls. It's also a good place to learn ... More
