Mt. Rose opens for 2017-18 season

“Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe announced it will begin daily operations for the 2017-18 winter season tomorrow. The first resort to open in the Lake Tahoe area for the season, Mt. Rose will offer access to one beginner ski trail accessed by the Wizard chairlift from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days per week, and will continue to open additional terrain as weather and conditions permit. Snowmaking operations are now underway as temperatures allow. Beginning tomorrow, lift tickets will be available for $59 for guests ages 16+, and $29 for children ages 15 and under.

“Thanks to this past weekend’s winter weather and the return of cold overnight temperatures, our snowmaking team has been able to make snow at every opportunity,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing for Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. “At 8,260’, Mt. Rose benefits from the Lake Tahoe area’s highest base area elevation, meaning that we’re able to make snow from top to bottom. As conditions permit, we’ll continue to make snow, and hope to open even more terrain for our guests to enjoy very soon.”

The Lodgepole Café and Timbers Bar will also be open daily in the Main Lodge. Equipment rentals and ski lessons will not be offered until more terrain is opened, however guests will be able to pick-up season leases and purchase season passes.

Following last season’s six-month winter season, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will aim for that goal again this year, and will open additional terrain as weather and conditions permit. For more information about resort services, conditions, or to purchase a lift ticket or season pass, visit www.skirose.com.”

Mt. Rose is the first to offer 7 days a week skiing. It’s time to do the snow dance! Get with it, time to ski!
