Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe opening Friday

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will be one of the first Lake Tahoe area resorts to open for skiing and snowboarding this season when they open Friday morning. Thanks to several days of cold temperatures that have allowed the resort to fire up its robust snowmaking system, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will open for the season with access to four beginner trails serviced by the Wizard quad and the Flying Jenny surface lifts on the Main Lodge side of the resort.

“Mt. Rose benefits from having the highest base elevation at Lake Tahoe, so early season storms paired with cold temperatures and recent enhancements to our snowmaking system will allow us to offer some of the best early season snow surfaces in the region,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. “We’ve really been maximizing our snowmaking system, and that coupled with weather forecasts calling for snow and cold temperatures to continue this weekend and in to early next week, will allow our focus to remain committed to opening additional terrain as quickly as possible.”

The resort plans to be open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with lift tickets available for purchase for just $40. The Lodgepole Café, Timbers Bar, Equipment Rental and Repair Shop will also be open, and lessons will be available for both kids and adults.
