Mt. Rose – Ski Tahoe

Mt. Rose screamed into the 21st century with its first high speed lift when the Northwest triple became the Norwest Magnum 6.  Following in its wake was the upgrade of the Zephyr quad lift to the Blazing Zephyr 6 high speed chair in 2004 giving Mt. Rose dual high speed, base–to-summit rides to the top.  But big fast chairs were the only the tip of the proverbial iceberg.  Separating the east and north slopes of Slide Mountain lives the extreme terrain known as The Chutes.  After 10 years of groundwork, Mt. Rose officially adopted these 200 acres into its trail system including the addition of the Chuter lift providing an exit back to the Slide lodge.  There was a time when skiers were allowed in the Chutes area at their own risk.  Shuttle buses actually ran from the Slide Mountain Junction to the base of the Reno Ski Bowl from the late 1950’s to the mid 60’s transporting everyone who ventured over to the backside.  The mid 1960’s saw the closure of this area until it’s official opening in 2004.
