Will stay at the Grand how far away is the resort if we were to drive and will there be snow? Plan to be there July 18-31, 2017
It will take approximately 20-25 min. To get to Mt Rose from GSR. Another 10 to Chickadee Ridge. I would speculate there will still be snow in a month. We just got 5-6 inches in the higher elevations last weekend. I suggest calling Mt. Rose to make sure they are still open for rentals. If not, Squaw and Alpine have announced that they are open until sept. You'd probably be able to rent shoes there, and explore different trails. All absolutely beautiful!
Have tons of mountain fun!
There will still be some snow, but the resort closed for skiing on Memorial Day. The last resort to close in the area is Squaw Valley, which will close after July 4th. Mount Rose is about 40 minutes from the Grand Sierra.
Anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes depending on traffic and if there are road repairs going in- I suspect there will still be snow - Skiing till July 4th!!
Because it's summer and the roads will be clear it will take you about 45 minutes to get to Mt. Rose.
There will likely be some snow, but we celebrated closing day on May 29.
You can hike the resort in the summer at your own risk.
