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.

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

Right off the highway is the area that takes your breath away, It's a great place for a short visit or make a day out if it. A great place to just walk around and hike or take advantage of all the wonderful outdoor activities. It is well worth the stop to check out and see even if you can... More
