Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center groomed approximately 10 kilometers of trail in the Home Range area and opened for skiing on Monday, October 22, the earliest opening date in the resort’s history. Staff towed the brand new Ginzu groomer behind a snowmobile and the special roller and comb system set down a beautiful corduroy surface. The new equipment allows Tahoe Donner to groom with very little snow on the ground. Tahoe Donner intends to use this grooming process as long as the snow allows and until the facility is able to use traditional grooming machines on the trail. This means the season has officially started, so get your skis ready! Access is free for season pass holders, so we encourage you to buy your pass today to get out on the trails for some skiing fun!

Alta Design + Planning and Management are continuing work on the Trails Master Plan validation project. In September management and Alta’s staff held an initial membership input meeting to kick off the validation process and hit key topics of concern or comment from those members attending. Over the last month Alta has met with members including Friends of the Trails chairman, Benjamin Levine; Steve Miller, board of director, Ralph Johnson, general plan committee member, etc., as well as association staff to review the trails first hand and gather additional feedback. Topics of interest included trail wayfinding signage, trail standards, new trails in newly purchased properties and trails of concern. The project team will be holding several additional membership meetings in addition to a formal presentation to the board of directors in November. We are excited to work with the membership to provide a trail system that is driven by their wants and needs. This is your chance to provide any further feedback on the trails prior to finalization of the Trails Master Plam. If you are interested in learning more or providing feedback we encourage you to attend the upcoming meetings, the schedule is as follows:
Membership Trails Master Plan Meeting – Friday, October 26, at The Lodge from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
