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. Your questionnaire will arrive soon at the same address that you receive your Annual Assessment mailing. It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and responses will be received through Jan. 31, 2022. You may submit your questionnaire by mail or online via the unique code included in your questionnaire. If you have not received your questionnaire by January 18 or are unable to receive it, please email and include your name and unit address.

One response will be allowed per property, and all responses will be kept anonymous. If you own multiple properties, you are allowed to submit one response per property. If you have co-owners, work with your co-owners to submit a response. We strongly encourage all members to participate in this advisory questionnaire so that we can ensure a representative response from the membership.

This questionnaire was created with the help of a third-party partner who will also handle receiving and tabulating the questionnaire results to ensure impartiality. Results of this survey will be shared with the membership in early February through various Tahoe Donner communication channels and presented to the board at an upcoming board meeting.
