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.
“For 41 years, the Lakeview triple has provided access to incredible skiing and riding and expansive views of Lake Tahoe. Last season, strong ridership combined with COVID-19 related chairlift restrictions proved it necessary to increase Lakeview’s lift capacity,” said Mike Pierce, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe marketing director. “When completed, the Lakeview zone of the mountain will offer even greater access to beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain and help give skiers and riders of all ability levels more lift and terrain options to enjoy.” "The lakeview chair is what we call a fixed grip triple, it's going to become a high speed quad. So what that will mean is we are going to have 2 high speeds that take off from the Mt. Rose base area. It really improves the traffic flow and the experience for that beginner and advanced intermediate skier." (KTVN channel 2)
Other improvements currently underway on the mountain include an additional $1+ million snowmaking infrastructure investment for the Mine Train, Slide Bowl, and Race Arena trails. There is additional slope grading being done to reduce obstacles on the trail and allow for terrain opening with as little as 12-inches of packed snow on Bruce’s Run. The resort will take all of the natural snow the season will bring, but during periods of little to no moisture they will rely on snow making to ensure the ultimate ski experience.
Over the past five years, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has invested over $6.5 million in on-mountain improvements designed to enhance the guest experience. Learn more at www.skirose.com.
