When you head out for a ski, don’t leave Fido at home. Enjoy cross country skiing with your dog by your side. Dogs are allowed on Cup of Tea, Piece of Cake and Dogonit trails during certain hours of operation. We are planning on opening our dog trails again after the Christmas holiday season (from Jan 5, 2016 onwards).

Season pass: $50 per dog (two dogs max per person).  You must be a Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area season passholder to buy a dog season pass.
