We would like to extend a sincere thank you to over 3,000 Tahoe Donner property owners who participated in the Downhill Ski Lodge Questionnaire. Your input was greatly appreciated. At the Feb. 16 special board meeting, a third-party consultant from TBWBH/Props & Measures presented the results of this questionnaire.

Staff and the consultant shared at the special board meeting that the full results and comments would be posted to the member portal. You can find these details on your portal home screen once you log into the member portal.

Staff will continue to review member feedback for continued discussion and possible action at a future board meeting. Watch your email for updates.

The lodge at Downhill Ski is a 50-year-old original Tahoe Donner building that is nearing the end of its useful life. Work has been done over the past several years on how to best address the future of the building. There have been three cycles of outside professional review and many more cycles of member outreach and input. We now have a design concept and cost estimate provided by architect firm Bull Stockwell Allen (BSA) based on these past studies, member input and BSA’s own analysis of the association’s needs.

After a special board meeting beginning on Dec. 1 and continuing on Dec. 13 and 17, it was decided that a member advisory questionnaire would be sent to all members regarding the Downhill Ski Lodge Replacement Project. Questionnaires were sent to the same address that you receive your Annual Assessment mailing and also emailed to the primary email address on file for your property. Follow-up phone calls were made to members who did not initially respond by mail or online. One response allowed per property, and all responses will be kept anonymous.
