Mt. Rose Development Company Equipment Use Policy

Mt. Rose Ski-Tahoe allows conventional ski equipment, tele-mark or cross country equipment and snowboard equipment with retention devices when used in accordance with the rules and regulations of the ski resort. In addition, a person with a disability is allowed to utilize any specialized equipment that has been designed and manufactured solely for the use by individuals who have disabilities, for example on snow mono-skis, bi-skis, outriggers and sit-skis.

The following devices are not allowed due to an incompatibility with the allowed devices and safety concerns regarding the ability of individuals to maintain directional and speed control of the devices. Devices not allowed include ski bikes (also called ski bobs and snow scoots), toboggans, sleds, platters, inner-tubes and hang gliders. Mt. Rose reserves the right to disallow other devices not listed if it determines there is a safety concern for our users on allowed devices.

Mt. Rose has determined that the use of any power-driven devices or vehicles by the public, including other power-driven mobility devices or vehicles used by persons with disabilities and snowmobiles, would conflict with the ski resort’s safety requirements necessary for the reasonably safe operation of our on-slope activities. These safety concerns include that the use of the devices on the slopes may expose the user and skiers/snowboarders to a safety hazard, such as collisions with downhill skiers and snowboarders, and that the use of devices may provide access into closed areas that pose an avalanche hazard.

These safety requirements are based on actual risks and are not intended to be discriminatory in any way.
