Tahoe Donner offers some of the best ski and snowshoe rental equipment available to help guarantee your skiing fun.

Daily ski or snowshoe rentals are available by online reservation. Day passes, rentals and lessons often sell out, especially on weekends and holidays. Reservations are recommended well in advance for peak dates and weekends to guarantee your ski or snowshoe experience.

Our basic ski package gives you the choice of traditional classic (striding), or ski skating skis boots and poles. We also offer an extensive lineup of high-performance demo equipment if you are a strong intermediate or above and wish to try a faster ski. Our snowshoe package includes snowshoes and adjustable poles.  We recommend you bring your own snow boots for maximum comfort, or borrow a pair from us if you do not own your own.

A daily trail pass or season pass is required to access the trails and terrain within the ski area boundary and can also be purchased online.
