Mt. Rose is alright. It was definitely better than what I imagined it would be. The mountain is still pretty small, and the vertical is lacking. The runs all seemed way too short to me. But it's a fair mountain, and they are making improvements....so it can only get better. My biggest fault with Rose was it's proximity to Reno, and the Reno crowds. Beer guzzling, chain smoking, overweight, trailer dwelling folks...... are all over the mountain. And from all vantage points you get a clear view of what has to be the most unattractive city in the US.....Reno.
