Large selection of beginner terrain and challenging for the advanced skier also. Friendly family vibe. Closest ski resort to reno and the most likely to have snow. Snow is very well managed. Reasonable lift prices.

There are about six lifts and at least one of those carries 6 skiers at a time! The runs were well-groomed and the staff members were extremely friendly and appeared to really enjoy their jobs! You don't find that too often at a ski area! I found the lfit ticket to be a bit pricy, $86 I think it was,... More

A recent article rated Mt Rose as one of the top 5 underrated ski areas. I have to agree. Often overlooked in favor of neighboring areas like Squaw, Northstar, Heavenly and Sugar Bowl, all of which are closer to the Bay Area, Mt Rose has the highest altitude of them all. In lean snow years, this can translate to better... More

Mt Rose is a large ski resort that is only 25 minutes from downtown Reno. There are runs for all levels. The Rosebud program is geared to help children from 4 years old and up. They learn in a separate area away from the crowds and feature really good instructors. There are two different areas. The front side is the... More

Enjoyed a couple of days at this high-elevation spot. Sunny with views of Reno the first day and snowing with white-out conditions the second. Unlike other locations in the Sierras, lots of snow here. Nice to find good snow in a drought. Has a small-town feel, facilities all centralized (easy and quick to buy lift tickets), expensive not-so-great food. Clam... More

Went to Mt. Rose between Feb 18-22, 2015. Was hesitant to make the trip as everybody was telling me that there was no snow, but decided to go anyway, perhaps cutting the trip short. But what surprise upon arrival! Snow was good despite the drought and the sunny and warm weather. The runs were good, from beginner to advanced and... More

Tahoe is in the middle of a snow drought for the 3rd year running but Mt Rose has the advantage of its height and strong snow making hence we had a great time.... Loads of variety of terrain even though it appears quite small upon arrival - it has a great old fashioned kind of feel that you don't get... More

Good snow quality. Love the bowl with its wide steeps. Beautiful chutes Tuesdays are 2 for 1 lift tickets. Great place to learn and great for all to advanced skiers and boarders.
