Although skiing and snowboarding can be an expensive sport, there are discounts available to diminish the costs of a lift ticket.
One Tahoe ski resort that has a number of “deals” is Mt. Rose. Located 25 minutes from Reno and a short drive from Incline Village in North Lake Tahoe, the Nevada resort is offering discounts this season to skiers and riders for practically every day of the week.
“Whether you’re a passionate skier or snowboarder, or someone just starting out, with all of the lift ticket deals we have available, there’s no reason not to start planning a trip to Mt. Rose,” resort spokesperson Mike Pierce said.
Mt. Rose has received 275 inches of snow this season, the third most among Tahoe ski resorts. That total far exceeds last year’s meager total of 171 inches in an off year for snow.
“After the historic, record-breaking snowfall we received in December, we’re set up for a long season ahead,” Pierce said.

At 8,260 feet. Mt. Rose has the highest base elevation among Tahoe ski resorts. It offers more than 1,200 acres and 1,800 vertical feet of skiing and riding.
As of Thursday (Jan. 6), Mt. Rose had all six lifts running, including the Chuter, which provides access to the Chutes, the resort’s extreme terrain that is popular among expert skiers and riders. Mt. Rose also has two carpets available for beginners.
