Mt Rose is open top to bottom with a 16-24 inch snow base! Last week storms dropped 14-16 inches of light fluffy powder snow and the consistent low temperatures at Lake Tahoe have allowed us to make a lot of snow. Be sure to follow Grooming/Snowmaking Manager Dave Hahl on Twitter to get the latest on-the-snow dope.
The sunny skies and great snow are perfect for learning how to ski or snowboard. First Timer Packages for ages 11+ are only $44 through skirose.com and include a 2 hour lesson, rental equipment and beginner lift ticket that can be used all day. Rosebuds kid’s camps for ages 4-10 are only $44 online as well, and include a 2 hour lesson, rental equipment, helmet and lift ticket. But don’t delay, as these prices are only valid through Dec. 20th, so get up here and enjoy the snow!
Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? Why not pick up a Mt. Rose Elevation gift card or two? They make an ideal gift for your favorite skier or snowboarder, as they can be used for anything on the mountain, including lift tickets, on-mountain dining, and lessons. Buy one today in time for Christmas. They ship first class mail, usually arriving within 3-7 days.
Please note that with early season conditions, skiers and snowboarders must be aware of marked and unmarked obstacles. For the latest updates on snow and mountain conditions, be sure to visit (nay, bookmark) the Mt. Rose Snow Report.
Put on your full holiday garb (Santa suit, Ms. Claus outfit, etc.) and head up to Mt. Rose on Dec. 14th to get a $39 lift ticket at the annual Santa Ski Crawl! A mass Santa photo will be taken at 11am followed by a Miss Candy Cane and Mr. Kringle contest at 1:30pm. Then head on down to Reno to throw frozen marshmallows at fellow Santas under the arch at midnight.
See you out there!
