Cross Country Ski Center

Open Daily | 8:30AM-5PM 

Check the Daily Update for more information about conditions, season pass early bird, dog and bike access status.


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.

It’s been a wonderful year of new experiences an It’s been a wonderful year of new experiences and at 48 today, I love that I still try new things, challenge myself and am always looking to be the best person I can be. Seven years ago, Fefe and I made the bold declaration that we would live in the Tahoe area and leave NYC behind. 3 years after that declaration, we packed up our lives and headed west. It was the best decision we made. Declare your wishes/ vision/ goals and then go after them hard! Nothing better than being outside enjoying our precious earth and celebrating being one year older. I feel and look better than I did at 38 and I look forward to many more years! #tahoe #tahoedonnerxc #tahoedonner #twinmom #arbonne #teamcaz #cazalottwins #happybirthday #luckymama #luckywife
