Corona Skiing
Dec 2020 • Family
On 12/27/20 & 12/28/20 we went skiing. Mt Rose has done an excellent just making us all feel safe during the Covid19 pandemic.

The staff is politely reminding people to wear their masks and the skiing was great (as it always is).

We are off for another fun and magical day today.

What a Gem!
Nov 2020 • Couples
We recently retired to Reno and purchased a season's pass before we even moved. Spent 2 days discovering it over opening weekend. It has exceeded our expectations! It's a short drive from our current residence and will be about 15- 20 minutes from a new home we are building. The area has easy parking, nice lodge which isn't fully operational due to Covid, great runs, friendly staff and they're doing a great job enforcing mask wearing and social distancing. Such a treat to ski during pandemic. We're also Epic Pass holders and honestly I enjoyed Mt. Rose even more then the Vail owned areas. Plus I can see the runs from my house! I expect to be there very often and look forward to a great first season as "locals" 😎

Highest base elevation in Tahoe (over 8000mft)
Dec 2019
The ski resort has a wide variety of trails at different levels. They offer beginner classes on the beginner slopes and have intermediate and advanced slopes, as well. There are classes just for kids, too.
There are places to get food and the beer at the Timbers Bar was great. There is also a sports retail shop for clothes, accessories and souvenirs.
We try to go weekdays and avoid holidays, and we find that it is not crowded at all during those times. Slopes are often pretty sparsely populated. Also you can get special pricing on off days. Otherwise it can be very expensive.
It is a great ski resort that is only minutes from Reno, NV. Highly recommended.

Fun in the Snow!
Jan 2020
Great place to go when you are local in Reno. Even just to go up to visit without skiing, to just sight see.

Best Ski Resort in the Lake Tahoe Area
Jan 2020
This resort is the best ski resort that I have ever been to. It has a wide range of runs including easy street for beginners, to the vertical drop runs Chutes. Private lesson was absolutely amazing and helped me have the courage to go down my first Black Diamond. Great prices for lift tickets (but not for the food, 9 bucks for only 3 chicken tenders).

Express seating at the lodge for lunch
Dec 2019 • Friends
Get your food in the Lodgepole Cafe (cafeteria) on the Mt Rose side, put your hats, helmets, goggles, and gloves in the cubbies, then approach the gatekeeper controlling seating. She will direct you to a ”reserved” table. There is no fee. It was so nice to get an appropriately sized table with no fuss, and it made our lunch break more efficient. There are condiments, napkins, and plastic ware inside the seating area.

Fun, Fun, Fun!

Great local mountain for a few hours of skiing almost on a daily basis. The terrain is great for all levels, particularly when the Chutes are open. The season passes are a plus because of the perks they offer. Ski the Slide side in the morning for softer snow, then move to the Rose side in the afternoon. The wind does tend to be a problem from time to time. The service is always top notch. The scenery is also something to see.

Coat/boot check in the rental department is sketchy at best - stolen boots
Dec 2019
I rented from their rental department and at the end of the process they give you a milk crate you can put your boots/shoes, articles of clothing, etc. in the crate which they promised to keep safe, in return you get a poker chip with that basket's number on it. I put my brand new work boots in the crate and was given my one and only claim token. I went skiing all day and when I returned to the rental department I was told someone already picked up my milk crate. When I asked how that could happen when I had the only claim token for that basket the young woman told me that people just throw their tokens on a counter and grab their stuff. I was stunned that the boot check department was run that way. A manager came to help and then disappeared for a while during the search for my boots, in the meantime another employee came into the rental area with a picture of my boots on his phone. I told him that they were in fact my boots and in turn the young man laughed about it, which was ironic because I didn't think it was very funny. The manager then returned and told me that he located the boots and that an employee's son took them mistaking them for his own. I asked for that employee return my boots and was told that wasn't possible, I was told to return tomorrow to get my boots. I informed the manager guy that I was flying home the next day at 6 a.m. and needed my boots, he told me it wasn't possible given the time of day. So, the solution he came up with was to wait till the next day to then ship them to me and offer me a free pass for me trouble. A free pass when I was flying home the next day at 6:00 a.m. is a useless as anything can be. He then went on to tell me how rare a situation like this is, which was even more infuriating to have to hear how few times it had happened when it happened 100% of the time to me. I was given a pair of rental boots to wear to the car with an employee escorting me as to get the boots back from me before I left, I then drove home in my stocking feet. On my drive down the mountain I got a call from an employee saying the guy who stole my boots was willing to meet at a grocery store. I went to that grocery store and waited for an hour and he never showed up.

The next day I got a call from the employee who's son stole my boots saying he was sorry and would send them on Monday (as that day was sunday he wan't able to send them that day, I know for a fact FedEx is open on Sunday's), I didn't feel like arguing with him. He wanted to know my shirt size so he could include a shirt. ALL I WANTED WAS MY BOOTS BACK! I didn't want a free shirt, I didn't want a free pass to come another day, I didn't want to drive all over reno looking for a grocery store to make it convenient for the guy who stole my boots to return them.

They haven't sent my boots yet, they claimed they would send them Monday via overnight FedEx, I am interested to see if they are damaged in any way and if they do in fact show up on Tuesday.

The staff failed repeatedly to not only secure guests belongings but then the response to the theft of a guests boots by a family member of an employee I felt was handled in a way that would have been different had the thief not been related to an employee.

The rental department DOES NOT secure your belongings, DO NOT leave anything with them, there is no security whatsoever. Also, the staff needs training on how to respond to a guest when that guest has a problem of this nature. Overall I was most dissappointed with the staff specifically the managers who should have stepped up and insisted that the boots be returned asap, I couldn't understand why returning my boots was impossible?

Best local ‘hill’
Dec 2019 • Couples
The proximity to the city makes this an absolutely exceptional place to ski. It is only 40 minutes from downtown and has the highest elevation. Granted is smaller than the other sky hills around, but it certainly has enough terrain to enjoy a great day of skiing.
