Great area to ski. Challenges for every level & not crazy crowded. Views of Reno & surrounding area are amazing. Reno has access to a lot of ski areas at Tahoe, Mt. Rose is the closest, about 1/2hr to 45 minutes away.

Skiing? Snowboarding? Where to? Whenever someone asks me where I'll go to do snow sports, the automatic answer would be Mt. Rose. This resort is family friendly, and it provides classes for both kids and adults. I've been learning with them for around 7 years...More

Love skiing at Mt. Rose. It's a great local secret! Our family has had ski passes for the last four years and each season we've gotten our money's worth. Easy drive from Reno, never a problem parking and the staff couldn't be more helpful!!

Super easy access, this is THE locals spot to ski and ride. Great mountain, long season, very reasonable pricing. Two great lodges (Rose and Winters Creek). The best value at Lake Tahoe.

Still lots of snow up on the mountain, but the roads were clear. Really a pretty area. Just pulled off into the parking area and took photos.

I've never encountered altitude sickness at Mt. Rose or anywhere, and I regularly backpack at altitudes of 8,000-10,000 feet. It won't be an issue.

Hello adventurer! It will take approximately 20-25 min. To get to Mt Rose from GSR. Another 10 to Chickadee Ridge. I would speculate there will still be snow in a month. We just got 5-6 inches in the higher elevations... More
