Cross Country Ski Center

TAHOE DONNER CROSS COUNTRY CENTER IS CLOSED DUE TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA ‘STAY HOME ORDER’. THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON! 


Voted the “Best Cross Country Center in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee” by the Sierra Sun, and #6 Best Cross Country Ski Resort in North America by USA Today, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center (TDXC) spans more than 2,800 acres in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. The 100km+ of cross country ski and snowshoe trails meander through tranquil meadows and forests, follow babbling creeks and climb to stunning views of the Sierra Crest. A fleet of state-of-the-art grooming machines prepare the trails daily for the best conditions possible for classic and skate skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking (when conditions allow). The trail system includes 7km designated dog-friendly for skiing with your favorite canine buddy.  Always check the grooming report to check if dogs and bikes are allowed each day.


Please note: During the winter months the trails around Alder Creek Adventure Center down to the Euer Valley and up to Drifter/Hawk’s Peak areas are closed to hiking and mountain biking. This area is maintained for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking when conditions allow. Use of this area in the winter season requires a fee.

No shame here! I’m laughing at myself, because No shame here!  I’m laughing at myself, because as you watch the last part of the video from 1/28/2020 morning’s skate skiing adventure up in Tahoe Donner, Truckee...the effects of my forever nerve damaged and partially numb tongue(another crash I’ll share another time with y’all 👅) are very evident.  I’m surprise my own spit didn’t splatter the camera lens! 😂
But hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself...well, then you are not enjoying life!
Why am I sooooo happy to be out there in the blustering wind?  Because I made the choice to give it a try!  Y’see, my ailing knee(yes...old injury-ACL reconstruction) is talking to me😕. But if you know me, AND if sense a significant enough ease in the pain...I’ll go for it! 
More details to follow, but thanks to perseverance along side more trusty Physical Therapist, we are on to something, and it’s good!💪🏼👍🏼🙏🏻
Today’s take away I want to share:  Never give up!

So yesterday I posted up here outside the Moondanc So yesterday I posted up here outside the Moondance Hut in the middle of my Nordic skate skiing tour to jump on a few back & forth negotiating phone calls between my listing agent friend and my client friends. 
And guess what?!! A deal came together and we opened escrow today! 👊🏼 Super exited for my clients and their new home purchase! 🏠

Here’s to a smooth escrow for everyone involved!

FYI:  I’m still working and available by phone, text, email, FaceTime, Zoom, etc, with all the new social distancing practices in play.

So if you still have buying or selling on your mind, let’s talk and see if the timing makes sense for you.
