“Great place to teach kids to ski”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

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 with a fireplace and yummy food. We saw young and old enjoying themselves at this great location!

“Good nordic skiing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

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, well maintained trails, beautiful scenery. It seemed a little expensive, but the last time I went was ten years ago in Colorado.

“Great cross country ski trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

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.

“I lived here! (and I loved it!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

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 Tahoe Donner Golf Course where I used to live. The area has several restaurants with in a short drive, equistrian center, golf, hiking, both nordic and cross country skiing. It is just up the hill from Donner lake which has a great area to rent small boats, kayaks, and bicycles. It is a great place to visit year round, the best deals for lodging are in the fall and spring.
