“Best place to live and play!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We love living here in TD. The amenities are fabulous, it's easy to meet people and they are warm and welcoming. Water aerobics and Zumba are my favorite classes, but I also use the gym and the trails. And we love our homeowners' beach at Donner Lake, where we have potluck BBQs every Monday evening during summer. The downhill ski hill is the best and most affordable place in Tahoe to teach grandkids to ski!

“Trails Rock ~ whether hiking, biking or horseback riding”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
