Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will introduce the new Enchanted Forest family zone served by the new Wizard Lift for the coming winter of 2015-16.   By realigning the former Ponderosa chair (approximately 30 degrees to the north) the resort was able to  add four new beginner trails and greatly enhance the beginner skiing and snowboarding experience currently offered, not to mention provide access to the  proposed future expansion on the north side of SR 431 in the “Atoma” area.

Our goal is to continue to offer a high quality guest experience – both for first time skiers and snowboarders and those who have been visiting Mt. Rose for years.  The relocation of the Ponderosa lift will expand our popular learning area, while simultaneously improving and changing the way skiers of all ability levels navigate the mountain.

The New Enchanted Forest family zone will concentrate more of the lower level traffic onto the 4 new beginner trails as well as existing runs served by the new Wizard lift, thus reducing the traffic on the Ponderosa Trail – the main return route to the Northwest Magnum 6 summit lift.
