Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe will relocate and rename the Ponderosa chairlift and add four new beginner trails to the mountain this summer. The new positioning of the “Wizard” lift will expand and enhance the beginner skiing and snowboarding experience for the 2015-16 winter season. In total, the resort will spend approximately $1.2 million in on-mountain improvements that also includes expansion of its snowmaking system and renovation of the Kids Lesson registration area (Rosebuds) in an effort to reduce wait time and re-imagine the guest experience. Plans include an overall enlargement of the indoor staging area and a complete redesign of the registration desk and process.
