Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe invests $1.2 Million to Enhance Guest Experiences
[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]With its goal set on continually enhancing the guest experience – both for first time skiers and snowboarders, and those who have been visiting the resort for years – Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe invested $1.2 million over the summer in on-mountain improvements. This winter, guests will enjoy the expansion of the resort’s learning area, the benefits of new snowmaking and grooming equipment, a freshly configured children’s lesson registration area and more.
To expand and enhance the beginner skiing and snowboarding experience, the resort relocated and renamed the Ponderosa chairlift, and added four new beginner trails to the mountain. The new positioning of the “Wizard” lift allowed for the creation of the new ski trails and improved and will change the way skiers of all ability levels navigate the mountain.
It’s no secret that Mt. Rose thanks to its base elevation of 8,260 feet, the resort is known for receiving top-to-bottom snow when winter storms pass through the region. To further its commitment to providing resort guests with the highest quality early season snow conditions in the region and some of the best snow surfaces all season long, nine new Polecat tower mounted snow machines have been installed in locations around the mountain, with four specifically positioned at the base of Slide Bowl.
The resort’s ability to efficiently make snow over even more of the mountain will allow terrain to be opened quickly, and prepare the mountain for its earliest scheduled opening on record. Mt. Rose’s projected opening date for the 2015-16 winter season is October 29, 2015, weather and conditions permitting.
Mt. Rose’s commitment to reducing wait times and re-imagining the guest experience triggered these investments, as well as the purchase of the latest snow grooming equipment, rental skis and snowboards.
Guests will also notice a significant change in the Kids Lesson registration area that includes an overall enlargement of the indoor staging area and a complete redesign of the registration desk and process. Renovation continued in the Timbers Bar, and the relocation and improvement of the Main Lodge basket/ski check-in have also been completed.
