From Tahoe’s Highest Base (elevation 8,260′), you’re launched nearly 1,800 vertical feet in 3.5 minutes. The reward? Panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and Nevada. The real payoff begins as you descend into 1,200 acres of some of the Sierra’s best powder. The recent opening of the Chutes puts us in a whole new league. Find out for yourself about Tahoe’s best kept secret. Mt. Rose is the perfect choice for the first and last day of your Lake Tahoe vacation.
Mt. Rose Improves First Timer Area Adds Progression Terrain Park
Lake Tahoe, NV: Summer improvements to Tahoes Highest Base Resort will include a mix of minor works as we prepare for our big project for the coming season(s) The New Slide Lodge. Embellishments to our First Timer area will include the relocation as well as an extension of the Flying Jenny Conveyor Lift by 100 to give it a stellar 430 of gentle uphill travel. The surface lift will move to the east side of the Show-off run too allow for the maximum learning on this gentle slope. Bringing snowmaking to this area is also planned for the off season to ensure operation of this area from the earliest part of the winter.
Terrain Park expansion will grow w/ the introduction of a progression park area planned for the right side of the upper section of the Ponderosa trail above the main lodge. Designed to introduce park style elements to interested skier & riders, low level boxes and other user friendly features are planned for this 2008/09 park.
Continued willow thinning and glade work will take place in both the Chutes and Wild Card Bowl. Selective glading in Wild Card includes the removal of snags, stumps and dead wood thus creating improved lines in this epic bowl, which does provide some of the grandest views of Lake Tahoe
Changes to our famous Daily Specials include the addition of Over the Hilll Wednesdays and daily discounts for university & college students. Our 50+ guests can now ski or ride for just $35 every Wednesday with our new Over the Hill Wednesdays (void holiday periods.) The former Student Wednesdays has gone the way of the Dodo, but has been replaced w/ a global college/university discount of $20 off per day on a full day lift ticket with a current ID (valid midweek / non holiday.)
Other mountain expenditures include 400 new rental skis and a new Piston Bully grooming machine.
