Mt. Rose is the place to kick off and wind down your Lake Tahoe ski getaway – it’s the only mountain offering views out over both the lake and Reno, and is the closest resort to the Reno/Tahoe Airport. With 1200 acres worth of north and east facing slopes to explore, you won’t run out of adventure.

Awaiting you at the top are 1800 vertical feet of Lake Tahoe skiing & snowboarding, topped off with the now legendary Mt. Rose Chutes, offering some of the steepest, sweetest, and longest inbounds slopes in North America.

A quick 25 minutes from Reno, and 10 minutes from Tahoe‘s North Shore, Mt. Rose’s ideal location is what makes it the best choice for the first and last days of a Tahoe ski getaway. Daily ski shuttle services are available from many Reno properties.

First Stop Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe

Imagine, for a moment, you’re just shy of 10,000 feet on top of Mt. Rose - Ski Tahoe It’s just past one o’clock on a Friday. The snow is light and deep, crowds are minimal, and toward the bottom a band is setting up outside of the Timbers bar. Your flight into Reno-Tahoe International touched down at 11:30 am and you’re already knee deep into your Tahoe ski trip because Mt. Rose is only 25 minutes from the airport. It doesn’t get much easier than this.
You push off and ride down through the entrance of the iconic Chutes. Plunging into 200 acres of some of the longest sustained vertical slopes in North America (over 1000 feet of 40+ degree bliss) you think, I bet I can get in at least 10 runs in today.
Locals have been making turns in Mt. Rose summit area since the 1930s. With its close proximity to Reno and convenient slope-side parking, lunch break laps are not uncommon, nor are “great day” stories over a quick beer at Winters Creek Lodge, a gorgeous tribute to the Sierras and surrounding valley views. Mt. Rose is laid back with a Nevada-cool vibe erasing all worries. This place is special. Mt. Rose is everything you love about mountain culture and more.
