MT. ROSE POLICIES
Please obey the following policies:
- No Dogs
- No Sledding
- No Drones
- It is unlawful to bring in your own beer, wine, or liquor
- No skiing or snowboarding while carrying children. Children in chest packs or backpacks will be denied access to all ski lifts.
NO DOGS POLICY:
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 result 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) are not only perceived as cruel to the animal but reflect poorly on Mt. Rose that we would tolerate such behavior from our guests. Other patrons will call Animal Control to come to deal with what they perceive to be a cruel situation. Many of these pets will bark for hours while their owners are on the mountain, which can create a negative experience for 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 and 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.
NO Sledding / Tubing
Mt. Rose is open to skiing and snowboarding ONLY.
Closest sledding area: Tahoe Meadows, 3 miles west non-commercial, open area
