The McKinney Cup, a Far West Masters Ski Race, pits some the fastest skiers in the sport against each other in Giant Slalom. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe is the closest ski resort to Reno (only 25 minutes) and is Lake Tahoe’s highest base resort at 8,260 feet. The Silver Dollar GS track is one of the best venues on the Far West Masters schedule, providing competitors with a long and challenging course with multiple terrain features for course setters to exploit.
The McKinney Cup is sponsored by Tamara McKinney in memory of members of her family, Steve, McLane, and Frances McKinney. The McKinney family started out skiing in Far West at Mt. Rose and became one of the most memorable ski racing families ever, highlighted by the success of Tamara and her World Cup accomplishments. The McKinney Cup is a perpetual trophy on display over the mantle of the fireplace in the Mt. Rose lodge.
