Mt. Rose - Ski Tahoe

Mount Rose is Lake Tahoe's closest serious skiing and riding to Reno and the Reno-Tahoe Airport. It's 25 minutes from Reno and 10 minutes from the North Shore, and daily ski shuttle service is available from many Reno properties.

Good powder skiing - and the Mt. Rose Chutes for serious skiers and riders - is thanks to Lake Tahoe's highest base area at 8,260 feet. This leads to 1,200 acres of skiing on 1,800 vertical feet.

Mt. Rose is an excellent choice for the first – or last – days of a Lake Tahoe vacation, or for those staying in Reno and enjoying nightlife in “The Biggest Little City in the World.”
