Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is the first resort in Tahoe to invest in a dedicated snowmaking system. This allows us to be able to offer great skiing even when natural snow is slow to arrive. Our trails are machine groomed daily for classic and skate skiing.

Come to TDXC for a Cross Country Ski or Snowshoe Adventure. Guaranteed no lift lines nor wind holds 🙂
