Wood shop turned ski shop today. I’ve been using that fire hazard of an iron since I was a kid racing Nordic and waxing skis in a freezing horse stall at Tahoe Donner XC Ski Center. I think my Mom bought it for Paul and I at a thrift store in Tahoe. It’s always done the job just fine. #nordork #tahoedonnercrosscountry #tahoedonnerxc

Having grown up in Truckee most expect me to be a ripping alpine skier but I didn’t lock my heals down until I was nearing 40 years old. I grew up a couple miles from an amazing nordic ski area though! Our parents worked and didn’t have the time or money to get us into alpine skiing and we lived quite a way out of town which meant shuttling to resorts was a challenge so this is the kind of skiing my brother and I did. It felt so good to get back out on these skinny sticks today for the first time this season! Thanks to #tahoedonnerxc for teaching me to love being a nordork. fischerski

We are have WOW weather! 
But with that, the snow is disappearing a little sooner than many are hoping for skiing well into
spring. 😕
So get out there and get the most of it before it’s gone!💃🏻🕺🏽

Btw…there “might” be a change in our weather pattern next week.  We will need some precipitation for sure to help with our coming soon Summer!☀️🛶🚤⛵️🏞

We put on a snow crit with a motley crew of riders at today's demo at Tahoe Donner XC and there was some hilarity! 
And a big thanks to Tahoe Donner XC for letting the 60+ folks get out on fat bikes, many for the first time ever, on your incredible property! Also a shout out to our local shop Paco's for helping us in style. -Pep shelookswest

In 1985, the Cross Country Ski Area expanded to its current location on Alder Creek Road. It originally operated out of the Tennis Center. Today, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center is known as a world-class Nordic ski center with more than 100-km of diverse, skiable terrain. Happy 50th birthday, Tahoe Donner!

XC Ski views. 
.
PD: looking across the snow, at the top of a mountain, toward a ski hut on the left, past tall green trees and to mountains across a valley. The sky is blue with some child’s and the sun is shining high in the sky, tucked behind one of the trees.
