For nearly 50 years, Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort has provided families a unique and affordable ski experience. We are committed to being “the best place to begin” and offer ski instruction for children as young as 3 years old. Wide-open bowls, uncrowded slopes, gentle beginner terrain, excellent grooming and a friendly, courteous staff await you. Our size allows us to deliver that personal touch that the larger ski areas can’t always provide. To contact us, click here.


 
 
 

 


Do you feel like you need 1,000 different things for your little ones when getting out for a day in the snow? 
This tote is perfect for all those little items (hats, and mittens, and scarves, oh my!), and it makes heading out on an adventure simple.

The "atomic bomb cyclone" hit Truckee good. Over 14 hours of solid rain yesterday turning to 2 feet of wet and heavy Sierra cement overnight. Thank you plow services for your efforts early season. Looks like we have the start to a good base this winter! ⁠

Did you know: When viewing an area badly burned by the Donner Ridge fire in 1960, Tahoe Donner founder, Jack Kirby believed the scorched area would be ideal for a downhill ski resort that appeals to beginners and intermediate skies. In 1972, the 220 acre-ski bowl with two double chairlifts along with the Donner Christy Inn day lodge, opened and was hailed as “the new place” to ski.
