Only 20 miles from Lake Tahoe near Truckee, California, and five miles from Donner Lake, the Tahoe Donner Ski Area slopes await you for a great winter vacation. Skiing these hills is a challenge for those taking on the intermediate runs, and a thrill for those starting out for the first time on the beginner runs.
With 4 lifts (one quad chair, one double chair, one surface tow, one carpet) and 14 trails on 120 acres, there's plenty of space, and gorgeous views from the 7,350-foot summit. You can do either Nordic or downhill skiing, maybe even embark on a cross-country excursion. It's all exciting! You can even enter the races sponsored for all ages and levels of ability.
Tahoe Donner Ski Area is proud that they are known as an intimate and friendly resort with a family atmosphere. Kids love it here, and you will find the Snowplay area right next to the Trout Creek Recreation Center where they can experience sledding and snowboarding.
It's not all about winter as there are great summer activities, too. You can camp out, ride horseback, play tennis or golf, or simply enjoy the incredible views. Don't miss out on visiting Tahoe Donner Ski Area.
