Last week’s snow and low temperatures are helping open up new terrain at many Lake Tahoe ski resorts.

Mt. Rose ski resort is one good example. The resort, located off Mt. Rose Highway in Lake Tahoe, continues to open more terrain in preparation for the Christmas holidays.

Mt. Rose ski resort has six lifts operating for skiing and snowboarding. Mt. Rose ski resort has also opened the Pondo terrain park, accessed from the Ponderosa lift.

Throughout the past few days Mt. Rose ski resort has opened these four trails – Galena, Enchanted Forest, North Rim, Upper Ramsey's.

Lifts operating at Mt. Rose ski resort

• Little Mule (surface lift)
• Flying Jenny (surface lift)
• Ponderosa (quad)
• Galena (triple)
• Lakeview (triple)

Reduced price lift tickets
Lift tickets are $69 at the resort/$64 online right now, valid any day. The $84 rate is based on the whole mountain being open, so we've adjusted our prices for now.

Below are the changes this season at Mt. Rose:

New E-commerce Shop and Website: Buy lift tickets, season passes, Rosebuds kids lessons and First Timer Packages online through the more effective and streamlined e-commerce shop resulting in a much more simplified purchasing process.

New features such as uploading a season pass photo have been added. The purchasing process is way easier for products bought through!
