Downhill Ski

Tahoe Donner Downhill

Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area is committed to being the best place for family fun and learning in the Tahoe region. We offer a unique family experience and are known for our successful learn to ski program—one of the only in the area that starts teaching kids as young as 3 years old. In addition, our size allows us to deliver that personal touch that larger ski areas can’t always provide.

We are very excited to announce the addition of a snowmaking system at Tahoe Donner Downhill. With recent Planning Commission approvals and a use-permit amendment for snowmaking activities, we are now full-speed-ahead with snowmaking installation at the Learning Center and Snowbird Chairlift, for anticipated operation for the 2015-2016 ski season.

Look for the new trail we added last year, meandering through the trees, called “Leary’s Laugh,” in honor of a longtime Tahoe Donner employee and friend who passed away last year.

Last year, we installed a new 700 square-foot yurt, which will allow us to provide a slopeside warm area for lessons with a large sundeck. See our events schedule for fun races, family events and holiday happenings.  Check out our deals tab or follow us on facebook and twitter.
