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.
