Mid-Winter Conditions Trigger Lake Tahoe’s Highest Base Elevation Resort to Continue Operations

RENO, NV – March 28, 2016 – Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe announced it will extend its winter operations until Sunday, May 8 thanks to its high base elevation starting at 8,260 feet, plus abundant snowfall in the Sierra this season that has delivered up to 371 inches to date at Mt. Rose.

“Mother Nature came back in a big way this season, and are still enjoying mid-winter conditions on the mountain,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. “The skiing and riding is so great, we’ve decided to extend the season into May, pushing the ski season to over six months and making this the longest season in Mt. Rose’s history.”

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe was the first resort to open in Lake Tahoe this season, on November 2, 2015. The resort will continue daily operations until Sunday, April 24, and will move to Thursday through Sunday operations for the final two weeks of the season, concluding on Sunday, May 8, 2016.

After April 24, the Winters Creek Lodge, Slide Bowl parking and tickets, the Adult & Kids Ski School, Equipment Rental and Higher Grounds Coffee Bar will be closed for the season.

“With lots of winter left this year, and for those interested in locking in the best value on season passes valid for the rest of this season and all of next, our Spring Passes continue to be on sale at reduced spring rates,” Pierce continued.
