Nothing creates family winter memories like sliding downhill on a sled or tube. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or a kid at heart – Tahoe Donner Snowplay offers fun for everyone. For parents who want their kids to experience all that winter has to offer, Snowplay is the perfect place to make snow angels, build snowmen, have snowball fights and do snow much more. One entry fee per person covers the cost to enter Snowplay’s monitored tubing lanes, sled lanes and free play area. We recommend snow boots, as you will be walking back up the hill with your tube or sled once you tube or sled down the hill.

Tahoe Donner Snowplay is open to the public and Tahoe Donner members. Members who have paid their Recreation Fees have free access all winter long; online reservations are recommended. Participants under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a paid adult in the Snowplay area.
