Mt. Rose near Lake Tahoe is setting an intended opening day of October 25th according to NBC 4.

Mt. Rose boasts the highest base vertical of any resort in the Tahoe area at 8,260 ft. Low temps and snow have allowed Mt. Rose to fire up the snow guns and prepare for an early start. If things work out, Mt. Rose could be open for three weeks before Heavenly, Squaw, and Northstar open in mid-November.
