When you pay the annual Recreation Fee, your member ID card allows you to access Tahoe Donner private amenities without a daily access fee for up to eight qualifying members. A member without a paid Recreation Fee still qualifies for member rates at Tahoe Donner public amenities and may pay a daily member rate to access the private amenities. A property can have a total of eight qualifying members ages 7 and up on the property. Please note: children under 7 years of age may be added as family members to a property at no charge and do not take up one of the member spots.

Member Qualifications: The owner on deed can designate members. All members must be blood related or related by marriage to the owner on deed to qualify. A cohabitation agreement can also qualify a person with appropriate documentation and approval.

Each property is entitled to as many as eight member ID cards for qualified individuals. Each property is also entitled to a maximum of two transferable guest cards for use by property owners’ guests for access to the private amenities, where guest access fees will apply. Guests ages 7 and up pay a $20 Daily Access Fee without a member present or a $15 Daily Access Fee if a member is with them. Up to four guests may gain access on a single transferable guest card.

Why a Prorated 8-Month Rec Fee?

Tahoe Donner is working towards updating the Amenity Access Policy currently. One goal is to align the Recreation Fee Year (formally May 1 – April 30) with the calendar year to reduce confusion and ease of implementation. In 2024 will be prorated year (May 1 – Dec. 31), and on Jan. 1, 2025 a new policy will likely go into effect and return to a 12-month period. Fees were prorated based on usage and costs.
