Best Of North Lake Tahoe and Truckee 2020 BadgeVoted the Best Cross Country Center in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee by the Sierra Sun for 5 years running and 6th 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. Over 100 kilometers 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 and snowshoeing. The system includes 7 kilometers of designated dog-friendly trails for skiing with your favorite canine buddy. Always check the grooming report for updates and restrictions.

For the high-quality cross country ski and snowshoe gear you need to hit the trail, visit our friendly and knowledgeable staff at the rental shop, voted 2nd Best Rental Shop in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee in 2020. 


Please note: Beginning immediately, 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. Free access to cross country trails are no longer available. This area is maintained for cross country skiing and snowshoeing when conditions allow. Use of this area in the winter season requires a fee.


 

 
 
 

 


 

We love how this project in Tahoe Donner turned out: a renovation + addition to reflect a more updated contemporary look, while still keeping the rustic charm and memories alive in this family cabin. #timberlineconstruction

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
