New Real Time Grooming Report at Tahoe Donner Cross Country
Tahoe Donner is installing a new high-tech grooming reporting system this year at the Cross Country Ski Center that uses GPS technology to give real-time grooming reports.
The software automatically analyzes data from the GPS devices installed on the machines and will be updating a map on our website of what is being/has been groomed in real time.
See the conditions page and watch as our trails open for the season.
Upcoming Events and Programs
New Junior Biathlon Program
We are very excited to announce a new cross country program in this Olympic year. The Junior Biathlon Program will be an introduction to the Winter Olympic sport of biathlon – the combination of skiing and rifle marksmanship – for children.
Children will be coached to improve their skiing skills and will also learn marksmanship and gun safety, using specially designed laser biathlon rifles. Biathlon was first appointed as an Olympic sport at the Squaw Valley Olympics in 1960.
Former U.S. biathlon team member and Tahoe Donner member, Tom McElroy, will be leading eight after school sessions on Tuesdays from Jan. 14 – March 11, 2014, 3:45 to 5 p.m. for 2nd – 8th graders. Participants must have basic ski handling skills.
Purchase online at ShopTD.
Includes: 8 skiing and biathlon sessions including the use of laser biathlon rifles and skating or striding gear depending on conditions of the day.
Stay tuned to our clinics page for more opportunities for children and adults to try biathlon at Tahoe Donner.
