Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe Invests $2 Million in Mountain Experience Ahead of Winter 2018-19 Season
Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, Nevada is in the midst of another $2 million in capital projects designed to improve its mountain facilities and enhance the overall guest experience at the resort during the 2018-19 winter season and beyond. Projects currently underway will build on the significant investments made over the past several years, including over $2 million last summer. Resort officials are committed to enhancing the already robust snowmaking system and making facility improvements at the main lodge and parking areas.

Rose with a strong commitment to offering superior quality snow surfaces all season long. Major snowmaking construction includes the installation of 17 new snowmaking towers complemented by increased firepower via additional high capacity pumps. The resort is also adding to its snow grooming fleet, bringing the latest, most efficient technology to the mountain. Facility improvements underway include parking lot upgrades (including a new staircase to lot 5), restroom remodels, and new resort signage including four state-of-the-art LED lift signs.
“Our intention is to offer our guests incredible value and to continue making investments that will enhance their experience each and every time they visit Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe. “The improvements we’ve made over the past several years to our snowmaking system, lift network and base facilities have all contributed to our ability to reliably offer a six-plus month season. Our goal is to keep that trend going.”
Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe’s 8,260’ base elevation combined with an even more substantial snowmaking system offers a competitive advantage and will continue to allow skiers and snowboarders to experience some of the best snow conditions in Tahoe all winter and into late spring. Mt. Rose plans to once again be the first resort to open in Lake Tahoe and to offer yet another extended winter season with over six months of turns. The resort is scheduled to begin operations for the season on October 26, 2018.
For those who plan to take advantage of one of the longest seasons in Lake Tahoe, Mt. Rose offers convenient access from both Reno and North Lake Tahoe and the freedom to ski with a variety of season pass options. New passes to the resort’s already successful mix include the MY Pass +(2 days midweek) as well as well as the Midweek+ (Sunday through Friday). With season pass options ranging from $199-$599, skiers and riders will have access to the best available rates through September 2018.
