Tahoe Donner Members

  • If you have paid the annual Recreation Fee, your member ID card allows you to access Tahoe Donner private amenities without a daily access fee for up to four qualifying members. A member without a paid Recreation Fee still qualifies for member rates at Tahoe Donner public amenities and may pay a daily rate to access the private amenities. A property can have a total of eight qualifying members ages 7 and up on the property. If you pay your Rec Fee, you are still required to make a reservation for Snowplay.

Guests of Members

  • Each property is entitled to a maximum of two transferable guest cards for use by property owners’ guests for access to the amenities where guest access fees will apply. Up to four guests may gain access on a single transferable guest card. Up to eight guests ages 7-69 can access Snowplay with the guest rate.
