Enjoy the tranquility of 11km of singletrack trail specially designed for snowshoers of all ages. The snowshoe trails avoid skier traffic and access some of the most scenic spots of the Tahoe Donner trail system. Check the grooming report to see what's open.
Snowshoeing is easy to learn and is a great activity for the entire family to experience together. We offer private lessons and tours for individuals and groups to learn basic skills and gain knowledge about the local flora and fauna from one of our friendly guides.
We prefer that you use the snowshoe trails when they are open to minimize damage to the skiing surface, but snowshoers are allowed use on any of the 100km of ski trails at Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center. If you are on a ski trail, please keep to the edges of the trails for safety and be careful not to damage the striding tracks or skating lanes.
A day pass is required to use the trails in the winter. Walking without snowshoes or skis is not allowed as foot traffic damages the snow surface for skiers. Alder Creek Adventure Center stocks an extensive rental fleet of snowshoes, snow boots and adjustable snowshoe poles for rent. For maximum comfort, we recommend you bring and wear your own hiking/snow boots.
Please be aware that fat bikes are also allowed to use the single-track trails when conditions allow.
