Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe

Located only 15 minutes from The Incline Lodge, all guests can enjoy discount lift tickets at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe all winter long. With a base elevation of 8,260’ complimented by mostly northern and eastern facing runs, Mt. Rose offers supreme snow conditions even on the warmest of spring days. Their convenient slope-side parking lots are incredibly close to the lifts. Skip the exhaustive hikes through villages, mandatory shuttle rides, and paid parking reservations. From some of the best beginner terrain in the area to the thrill of the world-renowned Chutes, Mt. Rose offers something for every level of skier & snowboarder.

The Mount Rose Wilderness Area is a backcountry winter wonderland for skiers. Access is easy from the top of hwy 431, just minutes from The Incline Lodge. With a high elevation parking area at 8,000’, you can count on Mount Rose for producing the deepest and driest snow at times. Spend the day exploring a number of small sub peaks near the car or go for the summit for a stark contrasting view of the Tahoe basin and Nevada high desert. Be sure to be safe, travel with knowledgeable skiers/riders, check avalanche reports, and practice your snow safety techniques on a regular basis.
