Scheduled a ride, but the coordinator put it on the wrong day. I can understand the mistake but absolutely no recovery or options. Person who made the mistake was very busy talking rather than paying attention which likely contributed to the mistake.

I cycle to the top in the morning, then go to the club house in the afternoon or into Truckee. The Lodge... More

We went here and went on a trail ride thru their equestrian center. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the setting is breathtaking. Every staff member that we came in contact with was super! We did a one hour trail ride and enjoyed it so very much!!!!!

I love the smallness, but still good variety of the mountain. I love the locals deals and the ski free with a child deals, otherwise we wouldn't be able to ski up here.

Best night skiing ever!! Even with a little rain! Groomed slopes, great equipment! We received a refund when it started raining- went away for a while- then returned for 3 hours of bright night skiing!

Good mix of beginner and intermediate runs with a few black diamond runs. Short drive from Truckee, well managed parking and shuttle, reasonably priced lift tickets, short or no lift lines, great views of the surrounding areas, decent food and bar, lots of snow, lots of open runs so little chance your children are going to crash into with trees,...

Tahoe Donner Resort has something for everyone. We just purchased a property there because compared to every other resort in the Lake Tahoe/Donner Lake region, this resort has the most to do and the best prices. Here is a partial list of the amenities: downhill and cross-country skiing, swimming (there is an outdoor pool open year-round), spas, huge exercise facility,... More

We toured around here and it was beautiful to see all the houses on the mountain top, the views, the snow, the wonderful town of Truckee.

First time here and will definitely returning. It's so open. And no crowds. The trails are shorter compared to other places. But the lines and lack of crowds make up for it. It's not a big resort.
