Best Of North Lake Tahoe and Truckee 2020 BadgeVoted the Best Cross Country Center in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee by the Sierra Sun for 5 years running and 6th Best Cross Country Ski Resort in North America by USA Today, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center (TDXC) spans more than 2,800 acres in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains.

A fleet of state-of-the-art grooming machines prepare the trails daily for the best conditions possible for classic and skate skiing and snowshoeing. The system includes 7 kilometers of designated dog-friendly trails for skiing with your favorite canine buddy. Always check the grooming report for updates and restrictions.

For the high-quality cross country ski and snowshoe gear you need to hit the trail, visit our friendly and knowledgeable staff at the rental shop, voted 2nd Best Rental Shop in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee in 2020. 


 

 
 
 

 


 

We love how this project in Tahoe Donner turned out: a renovation + addition to reflect a more updated contemporary look, while still keeping the rustic charm and memories alive in this family cabin. #timberlineconstruction

Is this how you shoulder szn?

This time of year, even more gear starts going into the pack, whether it's needed or not. Especially as long as I still try to find mountaintops on foot.

Today, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center is known as a world-class Nordic ski center with more than 100-km of diverse, skiable terrain. Happy 50th birthday, Tahoe Donner!

Wood shop turned ski shop today. I’ve been using that fire hazard of an iron since I was a kid racing Nordic and waxing skis in a freezing horse stall at Tahoe Donner XC Ski Center. I think my Mom bought it for Paul and I at a thrift store in Tahoe. It’s always done the job just fine. #nordork #tahoedonnercrosscountry #tahoedonnerxc

We're considering adding snowmaking to our operations at #tahoedonnerxc to make the best of every winter. The crew hosted two demos last Saturday and had the guns running last night resulting in an undeniable accumulation perfect for making snow angels. The guns are still out for viewing. Stop by and take a look! ⁠

We put on a snow crit with a motley crew of riders at today's demo at Tahoe Donner XC and there was some hilarity! 
And a big thanks to Tahoe Donner XC for letting the 60+ folks get out on fat bikes, many for the first time ever, on your incredible property! Also a shout out to our local shop Paco's for helping us in style. -Pep shelookswest

Together with my Beanie Girl, this was Day 1 on the skate skis for the season.  The trails were a bit SKETCH...but it’s better than nothing!
.
.
We probably should have hit the trails earlier than 4:15 PM, since daylight was dismal from the start🤦🏻‍♀️. At least we got out and made it back unscathed👍🏼😃! 
.
.
Skiing downhill by braille on skinny ski’s with numerous ruts and dirt patches, well...enough said😆🤪!
Let’s keep snow dancing!
