The spectacular new Alder Creek Adventure Center, Tahoe Donner's latest addition, serves as the Cross Country Ski Area base facility for all Nordic and snowshoeing activities in the winter, and in the summer is the hub for Bikeworks, the Equestrian Center, select Day Camps, and occasional special events. It will also allow for trailhead parking. The new facility offers an improved experience for all Tahoe Donner customers, both winter and summer, and will continue to be a public facility for the greater Truckee community. Inside the facility, the Alder Creek Café serves breakfast and lunch, as well as an innovative apres menu in the afternoons and evenings. Freshly made grab-and-go and made-to-order items with quality housemade ingredients make up the daily menu.
