Mt rose is my favorite mountain in the Tahoe region. all of the employees work well to assist myself as an adaptive rider with smiles on their faces. its has a 6 seat high speed lift going to the top on both sides of the mountain. So it makes for a fantastic resort to burn out laps on. its a little lacking on the terrain park side but makes up for it with amazing natural features. its got a massive snow cat track running the border of the resort thats perfect for warming up for the day and shaking out the cobwebs. The powder days are some of the best in Tahoe, and there are great pockets hidden all over the mountain for weeks after a good storm. The lodge could use some BIG changes to be more wheelchair accessible, but i guess i have to deal with it until the resort updates itself to modern ADA requirements. Even with stated accessibility issues I will always get a season pass for here as long as they sell them.... Full Review
I’ve been going to Mt Rose since 1966. I was stationed in Sacramento and loved to ski. First tried Squaw and then the other areas closer to Sacramento but the snow was always heavy and annoying. Then we found Rose and what a difference. We loved it. Now I’m in my late 70s and stick to groomers mostly and I have no reason to go anywhere else. We ski midweek and ski half a day. The parking is easy, the price is great and the beer is good. What else is there ... Full Review

mount rose is a very good resort, lots of runs and overall a great park, if you are a beginner, try out the enchanted forest zones, intermediates will love the ungroomed backside, and experts will admire the chutes (fuse, el cap, and nightmare are my favorite) theres something for everyone in the family, all the runs are very wide and you are free to go into the forest and ski, great place!...

If you can ski expert terrain, the Chutes (when open - climate change hurting Sierra snowpack) at Rose are longer with a tenth of the Squaw Valley hassle of CA crowds , higher prices, and multiple lifts to get to Squaw’s headwall West face KT22. Plus you get post card views of Lake Tahoe on a couple runs. Fun safe runs for beginners. When Tahoe gets snow the only resort more fun is at lake level on the West Shore: Homewood where it feels you might ski right into the lake - awesome views, fun tree skiing in Hobbit Land.
Swanky yummy food, especially at new lodge on Slide side and where u should Park and ski in the morning except tickets on other side and next exit up the 9,500 ft pass between Reno and Tahoe’s Income Village where the billionaires push around the millionaires. Good food in Incline Village 30 minutes away at Lake level. If you can’t ski well go to Flatstar (Northstar ) or Heavenly but u will be dealing with CA AZ crowds. Back to Rose: the help is nice. The bathrooms are bigger in the new lodge, but if you are not obese, all the bathrooms are just fine. ... Full Review
I have been skiing at mt rose for 6 years now. Whenever I first started the service was great. It hasn’t gotten worse and worse over the years but though. They used to grill the hamburgers right in front of you but now they start grilling them in the morning then preserving them to get people through the line faster. This is not nearly as good especially For what it costs ($13). The bathrooms are down right outrageous. They are dirty and small. If you decide to go to rose for a dat bring your own food and do not buy there’s food... Full Review
Very good service and beautiful views and trails to explore.... Full Review
Wow, amazing that Mt. Rose ended up in the "pocket" during last weeks storm. They tend to be more accurate on how much snow they get compared to other resorts who inflate the amount they got. It's impressive that they are already open to the top of the mountain. I guess that's why they continue to remind us that the base is at 8260' We had a great time last weekend and can't wait to get back up. Conditions were way better than we expected.... Full Review
Great ski area for the value and distance from Reno.
The Chutes are the longest steepest double blacks in Tahoe.
