Voted as one of the top three cross country ski areas in North America by USA Today, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center is also a locals’ favorite providing easy access from Truckee, friendly service, up to 100km of immaculately groomed trails and some of the best food in town.

Starting at Tahoe Donner’s large and comfortable new Alder Creek Adventure Center, cross country skiers enjoy a modern fleet of rental equipment, a large selection of cross country apparel, fresh, organic food from the Alder Creek Café; and an après ski menu at the Trailside bar. Our friendly, helpful staff include experienced ski technicians, talented ski instructors and a professional as well as national/volunteer ski patrol.

Our trail system meanders through beautiful meadows and forests, follows bubbling creeks, and climbs for some stunning views of the Sierra Crest. We also offer trails for fat biking and 7km of dog-friendly trails. See the grooming report, to check on status of access for bikes and dogs.

During ski season, we are open from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., conditions permitting. For trail reports and the latest updates, watch our grooming report, or give us a call at 530-587-9484.
