Tahoe Donner Ski Resort Review

Tahoe Donner Ski Resort is located in Trucklee California. For general information you can reach them at 530-587-9437. This is a family oriented ski resort with 40% of the runs for beginners and 60% for intermediate skiers. Between the expert ski lessons and the exceptional beginner terrain, Tahoe Donner Ski Resort is the perfect choice for a family to learn the thrills of snow skiing.

When you get to Tahoe Donner Ski Resort you will find 14 runs covering 120 acres. Getting you up the mountain are 1 quad chair, 1 double chair and 1 surface tow. The vertical drop is 600 feet.

If you can make your trip during the week be sure and take advantage of the mid-week specials. On Tuesdays kids 7-12 can participate in a ninety minute group lesson if you purchase one all day lift ticket. Every Thursday is Parent's Day. Just bring your kid and ski for free. If you pay for a child's ticket, you get yours free. Be sure and call for the special price details to make sure of the times, dates and any stipulations.

Tahoe Donner caters to beginners in every way possible. Not only are the slopes perfect to learn on, the first time skier packages are great also. The "First Time Ever" package includes a ninety minute group lesson, a restricted lift ticket and all day equipment rental. A similar package is available for the "First Time Ever" Snowboarder.

For the young learners the Children's Ski School is perfect. Kids 3-6 can participate. Its a two hour class that includes ski rental and lift ticket.

Tahoe-Donner is owned by the Tahoe Donner Association. They are a housing development company with large holdings in the area. It is all geared towards selling more homes but can also be enjoyed by the general public.

The resort is open year round featuring more than just the downhill and cross country ski areas. They also operate several restaurants, a campground, an equestrian center and a golf course. If that's not enough then try the driving range, the day camps, the fitness center including a pool and spa and you can also sign up for swimming lessons.

Tahoe Donner Ski Resort is just five miles from Donner Lake and twenty miles from Lake Tahoe. Your best lodging is found in Trucklee, about three miles away from the slope.

Keep in mind that if you are an expert skier you will probably be very bored on these easy runs. This ski resort is definitely geared for the beginner and intermediate skiers and for great family fun, not for the serious skier. If your family ranges from beginner to expert there are better places to go where you can all be comfortable and challenged.

If you are a cross country skier Tahoe Donner Cross Country might be just what you are looking for. Fifty trails on forty eight hundred acres have all the makings of a great cross country weekend. The Cross Country area is equipped with a Day Lodge and a Cookhouse. Night skiing is also an option on Wednesdays.

As with the downhill slope cross country equipment is available to rent and lessons are given with several different packages to choose from.
