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.

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.

Double tap if you’re ready for snow. I hear Squaw is opening November 16! ————————————————————————
This view is from the downhill ski resort in our neighborhood. That’s right, if you’re new to skiing or have kids, this is the best place to learn in North Lake Tahoe. Not to mention it’s a few minutes drive from the cabin!❄️🎿
