Helpful Hints

Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort specializes in teaching first-timers and novices. Consider these tips to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

  • When purchasing a ski or snowboard lesson, reserve your lift ticket and rental equipment online. Reservations are required in advance.
  • Allow at least one hour before your lesson to be fitted with your rental equipment on most days. Arrive up to two hours before your lesson on weekends and holiday peak dates (or at 8AM for a 9AM lesson), so you can make your lesson on time.
  • Meet at the Learning Center 10 minutes before your lesson starts.
  • Ask questions! Our staff is here to help and will do everything possible to make your day on the slopes a memorable one.
