The ski season is getting closer for Lake Tahoe ski resorts. And “what’s new” will be a common theme for resorts like Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe heading into the 2019-20 season.
Located just 25 minutes from Reno, Mt. Rose is hoping to build on its commitment to enhance the guest experience. It has invested $1.5 million in on-mountain improvements ahead of the winter 2019-20 season. Highlighted enhancements include major snowmaking additions and the resort’s new ticketing and lift gate system.
With the installation of new Axess RFID lift gates, skiers and riders will enjoy a simplified process for lift access where they no longer need to take their ticket or pass out of their pocket when in a lift line. The new system also allows for easy season pass upgrades and daily lift ticket reloading.
“We are dedicated to offering our guests a high-quality experience every time they visit Mt. Rose. With the improvements we’ve made
this summer, we’re confident skiers and riders are going to find accessing our terrain easier than ever,” said Mike Pierce, director of marketing atMt. Rose Ski Tahoe.
Mt. Rose has also added new snowmaking to its already extensive system, made trail improvements, and purchased a new snow grooming
machine and more.
With Lake Tahoe’s highest base elevation of 8,200 feet and a good snowmaking system, Mt. Rose historically offers a six-month season and some of the best snow conditions in the Tahoe region. Early season operations and the ability to offer a superior snow surface all season long
continue to be a priority at Mt. Rose.
This effort is further bolstered by the addition of new snowmaking machines including two Pole Cats on Kit Carson Bowl, one Pole Cat on Ponderosa Trail and six portable snow guns. Summer slope grooming and the installation of snowmaking infrastructure on Aida’s Trail, will make it possible to offer early season skiing on as little as 10-12 inches of packed base.
Investments were also made to the resort’s base area, including general lodge and parking lot improvements, and all new furniture in
the Timbers Bar. A new snowcat will also be added to the resort’s snow grooming fleet.
Mt. Rose will continue to offer some pricing deals on lift tickets, with value offerings based on visit dates and multi-day tickets.
New for 2019-20 will be a Friday daily ticket special “SKI-GIF” featuring $49 tickets after noon time, complemented by live entertainment and bar specials. Our other famous daily specials will continue with “Ladies Day Thursdays” (now including a complimentary women’s clinic), “Two Fer Tuesdays” and “Locals Sundays.”
Convenient access from both Reno and North Lake Tahoe paired with season pass options ranging from $199-675 means skiers and riders
can be on the mountain from early season through late spring. With the goal to be the first resort open in Lake Tahoe, Mt. Rose is scheduled to beginoperations for the season on October 25.
