Great area to ski. Challenges for every level & not crazy crowded. Views of Reno & surrounding area are amazing. Reno has access to a lot of ski areas at Tahoe, Mt. Rose is the closest, about 1/2hr to 45 minutes away.

Love skiing at Mt. Rose. It's a great local secret! Our family has had ski passes for the last four years and each season we've gotten our money's worth. Easy drive from Reno, never a problem parking and the staff couldn't be more helpful!!

Super easy access, this is THE locals spot to ski and ride. Great mountain, long season, very reasonable pricing. Two great lodges (Rose and Winters Creek). The best value at Lake Tahoe.

This was my first time to Mt. Rose, and actually the first time I skied in quite a while. The process to get ski equipment and lift tickets took a while, but once I had everything, I had a great time skiing for two days....More

I've never encountered altitude sickness at Mt. Rose or anywhere, and I regularly backpack at altitudes of 8,000-10,000 feet. It won't be an issue.

Hello adventurer! It will take approximately 20-25 min. To get to Mt Rose from GSR. Another 10 to Chickadee Ridge. I would speculate there will still be snow in a month. We just got 5-6 inches in the higher elevations... More
