Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe offers vertical challenges

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Known as Tahoe‘s highest base resort, with an elevation of 8,260 feet and a summit of 9,700 feet, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has more than 1,200 acres of some of the Sierra’s best powder dropping more than 1,800 vertical feet.

Located a few miles north from Tahoe City, Mt. Rose has partnered with Granlibakken and offers value-added ski and stay packages for the 2014 ski and board season.

With an average annual snowfall of 350 inches, Mt. Rose has been named one of the “10 Hippest Ski Areas You Rarely Hear About” by MSN.com and one of the “10 Best Areas You’ve Never Skied” by SKI magazine.

Of the 60 trails, approximately 20% of the resort runs are for beginners, 30% intermediate, 40% advanced (black diamond), and 10% expert (double black diamond). The longest run is 2.5 miles. Get a feel for things before you go with their trail map.

Mt. Rose has two “six pack” high speed detachable chairs, two fixed grip quad chairs, two fixed grip triple chairs, and two surface lifts, the Flying Jenny and Little Mule. Check out the mountain with their webcams.

Mt. Rose has three terrain parks: DoubleDown, Badlands and the Pondo Parks. Each park is unique in both location and features offered. Parks are redesigned and adjusted on a regular basis.

Looking to brush up on your skills or are you a first-timer? Skiers and boarders can take lessons daily by any number of skilled instructors. First timers have access to three dedicated beginner lifts and are provided beginner-specific rental equipment.

Noteworthy runs are 200-acre The Chutes, an extreme challenge that offers some the longest vert in North America. This means you don’t just get a quick glimpse of a steep run, you get 1000-plus feet of north facing slopes with pitches from 40-55 degrees.

Dining at Mt. Rose includes eight restaurants, bars, and coffee shops with a variety of offerings.

Opened in 2009, Winters Creek Lodge is Mt. Rose’s newly built facility on the “Slide” side. The glass facade lodge and 8,000 square-foot outdoor deck accommodates up to 150 guests inside and features a panoramic view of Washoe Valley and Washoe Lake, fine dining and a Sky Bar.

Homewood offers big adventure along cozy mountainside

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

From groomed boulevards to its trademark hidden powder stashes and incredible lake views, Homewood Mountain Resort has it all with more than 1,260 acres of skiing and snowboarding terrain.

Homewood has unbeatable lake views to complete your day of skiing in Lake Tahoe.

Homewood has unbeatable lake views to complete your day of skiing in Lake Tahoe.

Located a few miles from Granlibakken, Homewood is easy to access by vehicle or you can take the shuttle with daily pick-up at the front steps of Granlibakken at 8:30 a.m. and again at 9:30 a.m. When you’re done for the day, the shuttle brings you back.

Granlibakken has partnered with Homewood and offers value-added ski and stay packages for the 2013-14 ski and board season.

With an average seasonal snowfall of around 450 inches and a 300 days of trademark Tahoe sunshine, there’s a reason SKI Magazine ranked Homewood among the Top 10 resorts in California and Nevada last year.

Homewood has a base elevation of 7,230 feet and a summit of 7,880 feet that amounts to a 1,650 vertical foot elevation gain. There are 8 lifts providing access to 64 runs. Among those runs, 15 percent is considered beginner terrain, 50 percent intermediate, 35 percent advanced, plus terrain parks. The longest run is the 2-mile long “Rainbow Ridge.”

Lifts open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily (weather and conditions permitting). With Ellis Peak sheltering the entire Homewood mountain from high-ridge winds, the term “wind hold” is almost unheard of. Check out the interactive trail map here.

New to the slopes or looking for a refresher? Check out Homewood’s ski and snowboarding school, which offers all-ages beginner to advanced classes as well as “learn to ski and ride” packages for adults. Homewood is one of the only resorts of its kind to offer free intermediate and advanced lessons, Sundays through Fridays during non-peak dates throughout the season.

Among Homewood’s well-tuned terrain parks are:

  • Lakeview Park at the bottom of Rainbow Ridge run
  • Kolby’s Escape Park, at the top of Old Homewood Express Chairlift;
  • Happy Park (also known as Shredwood), next to Happy Platter at the North Lodge beginner area featuring a 10 foot up box, a 10 foot down box, a 20 foot flat box jump, a 17 foot jump, a 20 foot A-frame rail, and a 20 foot hip with a rail.
  • Madden Ridge Terrain Park near the top of the Madden Chairlift and Money Booter, just down from the Big Blue View Bar on Cradle run.

Alpine Meadows was founded in 1961 by a group of avid skiers from San Francisco who discovered the potential at Alpine Meadows while skiing at neighboring Squaw Valley. A number of families pooled resources to develop the resort and John Reily originally founded Alpine Meadows as Ward Peak. Alpine Meadows opened for the 1961-1962 season with three lifts. JMA Ventures purchased Alpine Meadows from Powdr Corporation in July 2007 and operated the resort until the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows joined forces in November 2011.

Alpine Meadows offers 2,400 acres of breathtaking skiable terrain on more than 100 trails. It has a base elevation of 6,385 feet, a summit elevation of 8,637 feet at Wards Peak. Alpine Meadows has a vertical rise of 1,802 feet.

There are 13 lifts to take you where you want to go. If you like skiing bowls, Alpine has seven of them: Alpine, Estelle, Beaver, Wolverine, Sun Bowl, Big Bend Bowl and S.P Bowl. You can catch all the action on the live skicam here.

If you’re a boarder you’ll gush over Alpine’s terrain parks, featuring the mile-long Firing Line, the Sidewinder, The Bunker, Cannonball and the Barracks.

The resort offers a complimentary shuttle service so it is easy to get to Granlibakken and back. The shuttle provides enough room for equipment so that guests can travel comfortably to and from the mountain while enjoying the view.

Alpine’s main lodge amenities and facilities make it easy for guests to enjoy a day of mountain adventure. Skiers and boarders can relax on the expansive Sundeck and soak up the views facing the mountain and watch as skiers and riders ascend down the slopes.

Family friendly, Alpine offers the The Kid Zone which includes an indoor play area featuring games, indoor jungle gyms for small children, and a dining area for a relaxing lunch or après-ski spot.

Lessons are available for children learning to ski and board in either group or private settings.

Alpine Meadows ski and snowboard instruction for adults is one of Tahoe’s best combinations of instruction, adventure, and fun. Top instructors and coaches provide superior instruction for beginner and novice skiers and riders.
