Mt. Rose, formally known as Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has announced its largest improvement project ever. This large-scale plan includes additional terrain, a new high-speed lift, and snowmaking upgrades.
According to a report in the Tahoe Daily Tribune, the Lakeview triple chair will be replaced by a high-speed lift. Increased traffic during the COVID-19 ski boom had provided management with some urgency in increasing uphill capacity. An undisclosed amount of new trails will be added in the Lakeview zone to address skier traffic concerns.
Other improvements include grading existing trails in this area of the mountain. The goal is to remove protruding rocks and obstacles to make the slope skiable with as little snow as possible. The snowmaking system will also receive a $1 million upgrade.
Mt. Rose has a high base elevation of 8,260, making it one of the first resorts to open in the west each year. It appears that a good portion of these improvements intend to enhance the early-season experience at the mountain.
