Mt. Rose - North Tahoe/Reno area
Valentines weekend I took my Gf up to reno for a nice little getaway and to take her up for her first session of the season. Since we were staying in Reno and we were going to board on Saturday we wanted to go somewhere that was close and to a mountain we both haven't gone to before. I usually shred at Northstar because of their terrain park but going to Northstar on a Saturday is not the business....unless you like 30-45 min lift lines and groups of people chilling in the middle of the runs throughout the mountain. So we decided to go to Mt. Rose. Being my first time there, I was excited to explore the mountain kinda like going to Disneyland for the first time as a kid. To make this short and sweet, the moutain was awesome. Hardly any wait for lift lines, no one was rude on the mountain, and the people that worked there were great. It was just and overall epic day. My Gf isn't a great snowboarder but she went on the blues with me...they were nice, wide, and long runs. since the mounatin wasn't crowded, i was able to help her with her carving since she could utilize the whole run by making wide turns. I wasn't able to hit the park as much as i wanted to, since i was with my gf, but I was able to mess around with a couple of boxes n rails. The one thing that i didn't try but wanted too were the black diamond chutes they had. oh well, theres always next time. So if you're in the Reno area and want a mountain you can own at, hit up Mt. Rose.
