Well Cara and I thought we would turn around when we got there. We saw one person with skis hiking to the mountain. Then we saw another chick in the parking lot asking if we were going. We went and it was worth it. Gale Force winds and snow and all. #tahoedonnerxc #donnerxcountryskiing #skateskiing #skateski...

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

To complete 174 miles in 7 days at elevation it’s important that your body do other things than running. Fortunately we live driving distance from the mountains and were able to get a beautiful afternoon of cross training. Here’s what I hope to be the start of many mountain training days.
While we are so not good on skis (especially the skinny ones) we sure had fun!
It’s snowing today, so here’s a cross country ski picture from a couple winters ago tahoedonnerassociation. So sad I only got to go once this year. Here’s to better fortunes and timing next season. #TahoeDonner #TahoeDonnerXC #crosscountry #crosscountryski #crosscountryskiing #xc #xcski #xcskiing #ski #skiing #snow #Tahoe #nature #Sierras #SierraNevada #TahoeLife #skidefond #California #GetOutside #PhotoOfTheDay #OutsideIsFree #Outdoors #nordic #nordicskiing #nordicbeard #nordicskiingadventure #winterwonderland...

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...

Backcountry cross country skiing above Tahoe Donner. About a 600’ climb to open bowls and magical crust skiing through the forest. We did not see a single person in the back country #tahoedonner #tahoedonnerxc #xcskiing #truckee #backcountryxcskiing...

Glorious mornin’, once again!
Even better with my Beanie Girl👧🏻❤️!
She said yes to climbing up to Drifter Hut before we started, then I threw in the extra effort up to the Far Side....🤣🤣😜
She said she didn’t like it, but I know she WILL appreciate my extra push later in life!👍🏼
And happy my friend, dolan_marcy was up for the extra effort too when we crossed paths with her! #strongwomen

Drifter Hut along the Donner Rim trail. These pictures were taken 5 months apart at the same spot. Both required a 1500’ climb. Just below me by the end of the lake is our current house. #donnerlake #donnerrimtrail #tahoedonnerxc #truckeelove #truckee...
