Lake Tahoe's Ski Season To Start Friday, November 10th

Following a recent burst of cold temperatures and natural snowfall, Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, NV has just announced they're opening on Friday, November 10th for the Winter '23/'24 season.

Mt. Rose has the highest base elevation of any ski resort in the region, and it's clear that they capitalized on that advantage with an impressive snowmaking push.

Read below for opening day details including what trails and lifts will be open:

"For opening weekend, planned lift operations include the Lakeview Express from 9am to 4pm, offering top-to-bottom access to intermediate level trails on the Main Lodge side of the mountain. Open trails will include Kit Carson Traverse, Kit Carson Bowl and Ponderosa. 

All parking will be available at the Main Lodge, and services open from 8am to 5:30pm will include the Lodgepole Cafe, Timbers Bar, and Rental Shop for season lease equipment pick-up."

Mt. Rose will be the first ski resort open in the Lake Tahoe region with other resorts not expected to open until the following week.

Notably, Palisades Tahoe plans to open on Wednesday, November 22nd, conditions and weather permitting.
