Free Tahoe Ski Shuttle Program Postponed

Regional leaders are disappointed that the Truckee-Tahoe Free Ski Shuttle has been postponed until next season. The much anticipated ski shuttle was a pilot program slated for this year and coordinated by numerous regional partners including: Northstar California, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, Tahoe Donner Association, North Lake Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association, Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce, Town of Truckee, Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association, Truckee Tahoe Airport District and The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District.

The program is expected to launch in winter 2012/2013 in an effort to offer an eco-friendly way for skiers and snowboarders to get to the mountain. For more information visit us on facebook or call (866) 443-2027.

Discount for Cross Country Skiers



The Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center has created a special offer for season pass holders at other area Nordic centers that are either closed or limited in their offerings.

An adult day pass at Tahoe Donner costs $25, but the Good Neighbor Pass Holder Discount has been offered for $17 to season pass holders at:

  • Royal Gorge
  • Tahoe XC
  • the Resort at Squaw Creek
  • Auburn Ski Club
  • Northstar
  • Spooner Lake.

The Good Neighbor deal is valid Monday-Friday for the rest of this season, with the exception of February 20. Present your pass at the ticket desk to receive the discount. For questions call (530) 587-9484 or email our cross country center.

“We were contacted by a few other area cross country centers to see what we could do to accommodate their pass holders, and we decided to offer them a deep discount,” says Kirt Zimmer, director of sales and marketing for Tahoe Donner.

“We’re competitors with these areas, but we also work together to promote the sport. We think it’s in the best interest of all that people get out skiing. The conditions here are actually quite good now. We hosted an international event this week with athletes from 13 countries and received a lot of positive feedback about our ability to pull it off when other regional events have been cancelled.”
