One ski resort in Reno hopes to lure skiers and snowboarders to the slopes with a 2-for-1 lift ticket offer good this weekend only.

Mt. Rose , which is near Lake Tahoe, says a snowstorm is expected this weekend. Snow depths are 6 to 8 feet, and all runs are open.

The resort has received 188 inches to 243 inches of snow this season.

Lift tickets cost $104 for adults (16 and older) and $64 for children 6 to 15 years old. So that’s the price you’ll pay for two lift tickets if you go this Friday through Sunday.


Twofer tickets must be used on the same day; you can buy online or at the resort.
