So some of you guys know that I rag on Mt.Rose Ski Tahoe from time to time. Well I believe that credit should be given also when it's due.
The City of Reno's Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program has not been able to open yet because of an ultra-thin snowpack at their elevation (and no snowmaking). This is an outstanding program for kids to lear to ski, ride, and tele for a very reasonable cost, and it's a shame that it is going on a month delayed already. Mt.Rose has stepped up and partnered with Sky Tavern to let the program start this weekend using the Mt.Rose lower lifts and terrain. I think this is very commendable, and my son is looking forward to starting this weekend.
