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.
Soft impressions in the fresh snow. It is amazing how often it snows at night and ends in time for the sun to rise and the sky turns blue. #pow #tahoedonnerdownhill #tahoedonnerskiresort #tahoedonnerassociation #tahoedonner #firsttracks...

What if every night you got to play in the snow with a big red monster tank, you got to eat dinner under the stars and watch the moon the rise, and in the morning you got to watch the sunrise from a mountain top? Oh what a life that would be!

Got to teach snow boarding today for first time all season to a friend from Mill Valley. After she had a bad experience learning in Europe she came to Tahoe Donner and did great. Tahoe Donner is the perfect place to learn to ski and snow board. I forgot how much I loved teaching people a new sport. It can be life changing. Appropriately today is Jake Day honoring Jake Burton the inventor/promoter of the sport. RIP Jake #tahoedonnerdownhill #snowboarding #truckee #tahoedonnerskiresort #tahoedonnerassociation #tahoe #yoloaventuras #jakeburton...

Some image from last night at work. The Gopro Max does amazing stuff. For most of the shots I just Velcro’s the mono pole to the blade and let it run while I worked. #gopromax #gopro #pistonbully #groomerofinstagram #tahoedonnerdownhill #tahoedonnerassociation #truckee #360camera...
Inspecting my work! After grooming all night in the dark it is good to snowboard the slopes to see how it sets up. #tahoedonnerdownhill #tahoedonnerskiresort #tahoedonnerassociation #pistonbully #snowgroomer #truckee #truckeelove #corduroysnow #groomers...

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.

First night of a seven day event of snow. Spent 10 hours grooming in a blizzard last night. Learned a lot, and had a blast. #blizzard #tahoe #tahoedonnerdownhill #donnerlake #truckeecalifornia #pistonbully #pistonbully400 #snow. The first photo is out Christmas tree on our deck. The machine is what I drive at work. The last picture is what it looked like out my front window all night long. We would make one pass and when we returned could not see our tracks...

This is what it looked like at work last night. After a storm brought 20+ inches of fluffy powder to #tahoedonnerdownhill and a bunch of people played in it. It is our job to turn it back into the groomed corduroy that everyone expects when they get to the mountain. It is magic!
