Mt. Rose - Ski Tahoe Ski Resort Professional Review and Guide
"Mt. Rose was discovered in the early 1930s when members of the Reno Ski Club, including local historian Bill Berry and Squaw Valley cofounder Wayne Poulson, climbed up Slide Mountain due west of Washoe City in search of a ski area site. The group returned in 1938 to ride Nevada’s first surface lift, an Upski, at the state’s first ski area, built without lodge, day facilities, or name.
Not yet overbuilt and far enough removed from the Tahoe weekend crowds to remain civilized, at Mt. Rose–Ski Tahoe you’ll find the consistently best snow, the cleanest runs, the happiest staff, and the most interesting events—in a word…soul. The mountain is really just about skiing. There aren’t any fancy tubing or snowplay packages, and the mood runs from down-home to low-key. Now if we could just get them to open The Chutes again. This eTrail contains a thorough description of the resort including driving directions, mountain statistics, trail profiles, extensive lodging & dining information, travel tips, and much more."
