“Trails Rock ~ whether hiking, biking or horseback riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Tahoe Donner trail system is unbeatable. I have hiked them, mountain biked them and have been horseback riding. They are well marked, so even if you are alone, it's difficult to get lost. The TD Association has done a great job of keeping them up, adding bridges over creeks, clearly marking the boundaries, and keeping them clear of garbage. Euer Valley is a beautiful place to bike or hike.

There are some steep climbs, but the maps clearly mark them and you can still enjoy an all day hike wth young children.

“Excellent for beginners and children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

First time skiing for my 4 and 6 yr old children as well as my 42y/o husband. All received lessons from the friendly staff (10am-noon) and enjoyed it. Great beginners runs (green and blue) but only minimal black diamonds...we went at the end of March and the snow was melting already.
Would recommend to all who are just beginning to learn to ski!

“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 26, 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!
