Mt Rose Nevada

Mt Rose has 60 exciting trails ranging from double black diamond chutes to steep moguls, dense trees and rolling winding groomed trails.

From the Mt Rose Main Lodge at 8,260 feet the Northwest Magnum Chairlift transports snow riders to the summit at 9,700 feet in just 3 ½ minutes, from here pause to take in the breathtaking views across Nevada and the Lake Tahoe region.

Advanced Skiing and Snowboarding at Mt Rose

Advanced skiers and snowboarders have plenty of steep mogul runs and off piste descents branching out in all directions from the top of the Blazing Zephyr and Northwest Magnum Chairlifts.

The 16 double black diamond Chutes opened in the 2004 season are steep, deep and heavily treed; Saddle, El Cap and Jackpot are considered the steepest and most challenging.

For moguls head to Northwest and Waterfall runs to the right of the Northwest Magnum Chairlift.

Intermediate Skiing and Snowboarding at Mt Rose

Mt Rose is a first class intermediate mountain with long groomed linked trails covering the resort. The long Bruce’s and Big Bonanza trails in the Slide Bowl are groomed nightly and are fast first thing in the morning.

The Kit Carson Bowl to the right of the Lake view Chairlift has both intermediate and easier advanced steep trails that are groomed regularly.

Caroline pitt, NV. We found ourselves with a day to kill in Reno so decided to test out Mt Rose. A bus came to our casino door to pick us up, wasn't too early, about 8.30 I think and we would have been riding easily by 10. It's pretty small but has some radical stuff to offer. The trails underneath the Northwest Magnum 6 chair lift were really steep and fast. It was a little icy but had been groomed well so you could really get an edge on big G S turns. The park was a bit of fun too, we were the only ones in it all afternoon. I went not expecting to much but what I had was a great final day on the board. It was pretty cheap too, with transport, pass and lunch only about $65.

Daniel Ivanov, TX. Mt Rose is the ideal warm up mountain at the start of your vacation. The chutes are some of the best around and the lower wind protected beginner areas are great to introduce young children to snow for the first time, my young kids can't get enough of the Wild Horse Adventure Trail.
