Lake Tahoe is world famous for sun soaked slopes, perfect powder and stunning views—Mt. Rose is Tahoe’s best kept secret. Technically located in the bustling city of Reno, visitors get the best of both worlds with unobstructed views of Reno’s city life and Tahoe’s surreal lake. Its location makes travel easy for out-of-towners and the trails are excellent. With a grand-total 1,200 acres and an 1,800 foot vertical drop, Rose rivals popular nearby mountains for a fraction of the cost and foot traffic.
