New Cross Country Building Grand Opening Early 2015

We are very excited about our new Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area facility, pictured above and scheduled to open in early 2015. It will house improved food and beverage service, an enhanced rental operation, an upgraded locker room, a larger wax room, and a new multi-purpose room, as well as a grand deck with fire pits and an expanded parking lot. A grand opening ceremony is planned for February 2015, but skiing operations will begin when the snow flies. Check back for more information on the grand opening celebration.
