Helpful Hints

Tahoe Donner Ski Resort specializes in teaching first timers and novices and is committed to being the best place for family fun and learning in the Tahoe region. Listed below are some tips to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

  • Purchase a ski or snowboard package (includes lift ticket, lesson and rental equipment) at our ticket and lesson location. Reservations are highly recommended.
  • Allow a least 1 hour before your lesson to be fitted with your rental equipment on most days. Arrive up to 2 hours before your lesson on weekends and holiday Peak dates (or right at 8:00am for a 9:00am lesson), so you can make your lesson on time.
  • Meet 10 minutes before your lesson starts. Snowflakes (ski ages 3-4 and ski ages 5-6) meet at the Snowflake Meeting Area. All other lessons meet at the Learning Center.
  • Be sure to have the appropriate clothing for skiing and riding. Key essentials are gloves, eye wear, jacket, and snow pants. Kids taking lessons are required to have eye wear, waterproof pants, gloves, and helmet to participate. This will make their first experience great!
  • Ask questions! Our staff is here to help and will do everything possible to make your day on the slopes a memorable one.
