The talk about last season has been like a broken record. Things like “You should’ve been here!” or “Aw man! I can’t believe how much snow we got last year!” are being uttered by everyone. Can you blame folks for still talking about it? After four bad winters, including one of the worst seasons in nearly 500 years, the pent-up demand for snow reached a crescendo. Fortunately, mother nature delivered in spades.
But enough of that… so, what about the 2017-18 season? With Mt. Bachelor opening in September, shouldn’t a resort be opening soon in Lake Tahoe? The answer is YES & Mt. Rose is kicking it off this weekend!
Mt Rose open in October 2017
Mt. Rose has a major advantage compared to other resorts in the Lake Tahoe region. It has the highest base elevation standing at 8,260’ above sea level, meaning they can start their snow-making way ahead of anyone else even if we’re in a warm period such as this. They will offer access to one beginner ski trail serviced by the Wizard chairlift from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on October 27th and 28th. But the best part? After your done skiing, the bar at Mt. Rose has one of the best selection of micro-brews at a ski resort we’ve ever seen! So, ski/ride a little, have a burger, grab a barley pop and celebrate the start of the season.
Don’t have a season pass to Mt. Rose and wondering how much it costs? They understand! There’s only one lift running, so they’re offering a steep discount:
$20 – Guests 16 & Older
$10 – children 15 & Under
NOTE: No Rentals & No Ski School (No Adult or child lessons)
