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.

we snow shooed here as many resorts were closed due to wind. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was really tasty. My husband and I both had the soup - it was really good. My husband then enjoyed the cross country skiing - great and extensive tracks. love this palce

The food is great, fresh and changeable. Service is outstanding. The price is a little high but I guess that you get what you pay for

Despite a 3 day weekend, it always seems quiet once we hit the homestead here in Tahoe-Donner. We can take the dog out for a walk on the street or out in the meadow in the snow and enjoy the peace and quiet without a problem. We love it up here.

Tahoe Donner is a great community in Truckee, so many activities, from downhill skiing, cross-country skiing to golfing, playing tennis, relaxing by the pool or the private beach in the summer, the choises are endless and your family will have a blast!

We stayed in a cabin in Donner and wanted a place close by that wasn't too crowded for my kids to learn to ski. Tahoe Donner was perfect for that. We noticed that lots of families with small children go there specifically for that reason. Since my kids are 12 and 13 and didn't think it was "cool" to take... More
