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.

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. We also recently built a new trail, meandering through the trees, called “Leary’s Laugh,” in honor of a longtime Tahoe Donner employee and friend who passed away recently. See our events schedule for fun races, family events and holiday happenings.  Check out our deals tab or follow us on facebook and twitter.
