During holiday periods and busy weekends, look for the Express Season Zones in the main lodge.

Our goal is to find you a seat in the lodge if you’ve purchased hot food at any Mt. Rose food outlet.

Simply show up at one of the designated Express zones w/ your food already purchased and we’ll find a seat for you and your party.



We ask that you abide by the following rules:

Rose No












Mt. Rose has had many problems in the past with people bringing their dogs to the ski area. This may be the result of a small number of irresponsible pet owners, but the consequences have resulted in a simple NO DOGS policy at the mountain.

Common dog problems include:

Loose / Unleashed Dogs: Dogs that are left to run loose in the parking lots and base areas resulting in:
• Traffic issues in the parking lots
• Scrounging for food in our public areas
• Barking / frightening other patrons including young children
• Dog poop / yellow snow in the parking lots and lodge areas
• Road hazard – especially when dogs are dangerously near the highway entrance

Dogs Left in Vehicles: Pets left in vehicles (sometimes without the windows cracked) is not only perceived as cruel to the animal, but reflects poorly on Mt. Rose that we would tolerate such behavior from our guests. Other patrons will call Animal Control to come deal with what they perceive is a cruel situation. Many of these pets will bark for hours while their owners are on the mountain, which can create a negative experience to nearby patrons who are here to enjoy a serene mountain experience.

Barking / vicious dogs in the backs of pick-ups: This practice again can be frightening / intimidating to nearby patrons preparing to ski for the day or returning to their vehicles.

You may be more responsible with your pet, but we still ask that you leave the furry ones at home.
