GET YOUR 2019/20 SKI SEASON PASS 


Start planning for another great season of cross country skiing and enjoy great pass perks including 4 days at Diamond Peak, 2 days at Homewood Ski Resort, free buddy passes, food and retails discounts. If you didn’t grab the spring season pass deals, lock-in the next best rates of the year this Fall, as prices will increase! 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.
