The Reno Jazz Festival took the stage by storm with a triumphant return to the stage this April.

With the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America, it’s no wonder Reno-Tahoe is home to so many Winter Olympic athletes.

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe is a favorite resort for many locals and visitors to the Reno-Tahoe area. This winter, work will begin to upgrade some of the ski terrain of the mountain and introduce a brand-new high-speed chairlift.

The Lakeview area of the mountain will be expanding to include new terrain and the project is estimated to cost around $7.5 million, with expected completion ahead of the 2022 – 23 winter season.

Rose Ski Tahoe marketing director. “When

Reno Ice opened earlier this year as the area’s first and only NHL-regulation sized ice rink and we are so excited to cool off on the ice this summer!

The long-awaited ice rink located at 15500 Wedge Parkway had been under construction for most of 2020, and the opening date was originally slated for late November. However, due to COVID-19, the completion of the facility was extended into January 2021.
