Snowshoe at Cross Country

The Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center is slated to open on Thursday, November 22, from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., for snowshoeing only. Conditions permitting, scheduled hours will be 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., Friday – Sunday, for the rest of the holiday week. Current trail conditions offer thin coverage in the lower elevations to good coverage in higher elevations.  

The Alder Creek Café will be open and serving hot chili, sandwiches, muffins, and coffee, plus additional items. This weekend is a great time to stop by for a quick visit, meet the new cross country ski center manager, Sally Jones, and learn about the exciting upcoming events this winter!

The retail shop is stocked with new gear for the season, and we will be offering 20 percent off for Tahoe Donner Members and 10 percent off purchases for the general public this weekend.

Snowshoe rentals will be available at the base lodge. Full-day rates are $23 for adults and $14 for children. Two-hour rentals from 1 – 3 p.m. are $19 for adults and $11 for children. Trail access will be free with snowshoe rentals.  Trail passes are $5 for guests with their own snowshoes.

Based on the weather forecast, we encourage folk s to bring hiking boots or water resistant hiking shoes to use with snowshoes, and dress in layers. Snowshoeing is a great workout, so it’s smart to bring a backpack to store your gear as your temperature changes. We also suggest bringing plenty of water with you on the trail.
