Cross Country Will Open as the Snowpack Allows in 2014

As soon as the snowpack allows, cross country skiing will be open to the public! Subscribe to our cross country email list to be one of the first to know when we are grooming!

As we await completion of our new facility, pictured above, we will be operating out of temporary buildings. Please note that we will not be able to offer our usual delicious breakfasts and lunches till we open our new kitchen. Snacks and hot drinks will be available, as will basic apparel, a full rental shop and temporary restrooms.

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. Check back for more information on the grand opening celebration.
