National Weather Service Has Issued a Red Flag Warning



The National Weather Service issues RED FLAG warnings when weather conditions could cause extreme fire danger. High winds and dry conditions are expected in our area over the next few days as the cold front moves in.  Winds could cause a wildland fire to grow quickly out of control.

  • Extreme caution is necessary, including no open flames.
  • Hot engines from weed eaters, mowers and chains saws can start fires.
  • Campfires should be out and cold to the touch.
  • Report any smoke immediately to 911.
  • Everyone should have an evacuation plan to save time in the unlikely event of an evacuation. Law enforcement and fire agencies will communicate any fire activity including evacuations though this Nixle system, reverse 911 and local media.

See details and updates to this notice. Go to Readyforwildfire.org for more preparation information.

Tahoe Donner Voted Best Golf Course & Cross Country Ski Center



Tahoe Donner is proud to announce it was chosen as Best Golf Course and Best Nordic/Cross Country Ski Center in 2016. The Best of North Tahoe & Truckee contest is hosted annually by the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza newspapers to select and honor top businesses and people that live and operate locally.

Each July, residents and visitors nominate and vote online for their favorites across multiple categories including food and drink, recreation, retail, travel and tourism, arts and culture, professional and other services, and local life. This year there were 112 subcategory winners with a record 54,000 votes recorded.

“We feel it’s one of the most important things a community newspaper can do — highlighting and celebrating the people, businesses, places and things that make Truckee/Tahoe such a great place to live, work and play,” said Kevin MacMillan, managing editor of the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza.

The Tahoe Donner Golf Course is one of the premier public golf courses in the Sierra Nevada and is rated “excellent” by reviewers on TripAdvisor. Located just minutes off Interstate 80 in Truckee, this 18-hole, 7,002-yard par-72 championship golf course sits on 200 acres of pristine Sierra landscape. Golfers enjoy towering pines featuring stunning views and meandering creeks, granite rock formations, elevation changes and greens so consistently pure they have been recognized as the “Best Greens in the Tahoe Region.”

“We are honored to be selected by our local community and visitors as their preferred place to play golf and go cross country skiing,” said Robb Etnyre, Tahoe Donner Association’s general manager. “Our dedicated and professional staff work hard to ensure the best experience for our members and the public.

Voted one of North America’s best cross country ski centers by USA Today’s 10Best.com Readers’ Choice contest earlier this year, Tahoe Donner offers a family-friendly, world-class cross country ski area with over 100 kilometers of trails suitable for all levels of skiers and snowshoers. The recent acquisition of Crabtree Canyon, an alpine valley located northwest of Truckee, will provide 640 additional acres and new trails for skiers this winter. Tahoe Donner’s groomed trail system meanders through beautiful meadows and forests; follows bubbling creeks; and climbs for some stunning views of the Sierra Crest. Tahoe Donner also offers a limited number of trails for fat biking, as well as three kilometers of dog-friendly trails. This winter will be the second season of operation for the new Alder Creek Adventure Center. The state-of-the-art, energy efficient facility offers guests streamlined rental services, larger wax and locker rooms, expanded indoor and outdoor seating and a large Nordic retail store, as well as a pub with televisions and a fireplace. Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is open daily to the public and offers private and group lessons, rentals and signature events throughout the season.
