Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe Expects Rise in Season-Pass Sales Due to Last Year's Record Winter

Posted: Updated:

Wintry Weather tends to mean good attendance at the local ski resorts, but Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe says it's last year's snow that's driving up business this season.

Mike Pierce says the combination of a short off-season for riders, and the continued buzz from a record winter has translated into early season-pass sales.

"Sales have been very strong, we're pretty much already equivalent to what we did last year and usually we'll see sales continue to grow strong now, up until January," said Pierce.

Beginning Tuesday, Mt. Rose will offer access to one beginner ski trail accessed by the Wizard chairlift from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days per week, and will continue to open additional terrain as weather and conditions permit. Snow making operations are now underway as temperatures allow.

"That's what the power of snow making does, that's your insurance policy, no matter what, it's going to get cold, it's winter," said Pierce.

Following last season’s six-month winter season, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will aim for that goal again this year, and will open additional terrain as weather and conditions permit.
