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.

To preface this review, I've been skiing at Mt. Rose since 1967. Back then, Slide Mountain was a separate ski resort. Rose has a terrific hill for skiers and snow boarders, the elevation is such that they usually have a fairly good base (even when the have to employ snow making equipment). The employees at Rose are friendly and helpful... More

I have a season pass at Squaw. It got rained on pretty hard when the precitation turned out to be a lot of rain. So I came here last Sunday and Tuesday hoping to get above the rain elevation. It turned out to be the saving grace of this dry winter. They got 45" of snow in three days, and... More

We weren't sure what to expect as we headed to Mount Rose, having never skied here before and with snow conditions very limited everywhere in the Sierras, but we were very pleasantly surprised! Mt. Rose has done a great job of preserving the little snow they have - great groomers - well maintained. Service was friendly - smiling lift operators... More
