This is a great place to learn, it is not crowed. Lots of families with small kids. Fun place to ski.

Great place to teach kids. Visited here with my grand kids , they loved it. Small and easy to keep track of them. Not a place for black diamond skiers. We had a great day.

We went on a Friday, took a 10 AM ski lesson with Chauncey, and spent the rest of the day on the trails. There are trails for every skill, as well as some snowshoeing trails. The trails are well groomed, and there are warming huts every so often. It is beautiful out there! They also have a small day lodge... More

We went skiing over the weekend at the nordic center. It was MLK weekend, so busy, but the staff has a good system for processing rentals. They had sleds, and we rented one for my 1 year old to ride in. The snack bar at the end was surprisingly nice, and there were lots of people hanging out. Good experience,... More

TRails are well groomed with several warming huts along the way. Skiing here is for all capabilities, from easy, to intermediate and difficult. There is a nice lodge and cafe for food.

Tahoe Donner is a great place to vacation in both the summer and the winter. It's on the cleaner side of Lake Tahoe, North Lake Tahoe. For some reason this area of the Tahoe area is just always greener and cleaner. Tahoe Donner is full of vacation rentals that are moderately priced, their are several that are adjacent to the...

We stayed at a cabin in Tahoe Donner. Note... This is not on Donner Lake and is a good ten minute or more drive to the lake depending on where you are. The cabin was on a hill preventing bike riding or easy walking. But, a short drive down the hill, led to bike, walking and horse paths. We were... More

There is NOTHING I don't like except the Northwoods entrance off Donner Pass Rd which is steep and slippery in a winter storm .. But TD has everything a family could want and MORE. We love it so much that we bought 2 properties there - and pay the dues on both of them just so that we could have... More

As a homeowner I may be biased but you cant beat the amenities that our grandkids get to use. They love the trail rides and the golfing, along with the ability to launch our boat at Donner Lake and fish for crawdads at the beach. We go to Pizza at the Lodge and play Bocce ball and overall it is... More
