Tahoe Ski Vacations - Something For Everyone

Aug 17, 2007
Whether you are a expert world-class cross country skier or a new beginner with wobbly legs just learning to ski, the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort is the place where you need to go for winter sports. Depending on your level of skiing and snowboarding expertise, two ski areas are offered in the upper region of Truckee, California - the Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area and the Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center XC. Located 5 miles from Donner Lake and a little under 20 miles from Lake Tahoe, this exclusive resort has several excellent available restaurants, a golf course, and public equestrian center & campground.

With spectacular views that verge on absolute silence, Euer Valley is surrounded by three major peaks - Castle Peak (El. 9,103 feet); Red Mountain (El. 7,900 feet); and Prosser Hill (El. 7,171). Tahoe Donner is one of two major cross-country ski area on Donner Pass, and the Nordic Center is larger and has a higher summit elevation than the downhill one, being the only cross-country resort in California that offers night-time skinny skiing. Snowboarders are also welcome at Tahoe Donner. The resort has reasonable lift ticket rates, and there are rentals available. Here, you will also find a variety of ski programs and a ski school.

After a full day of skiing, going to the Lodge will highlight your ski vacation. It stands out with its rugged beauty, impressive architecture, and rugged beauty. Everyone who sees it, more than agrees this spectacular mountain setting is the cornerstone of the Tahoe Donner community. Whether you go in for a quick relaxing "pick-me up" or for the entire afternoon, it will still be as enchanting. Dining consists of contemporary, seasonal, American cuisine with a mountain view that never tires.

Another place to go for relaxation is the Clubhouse Bar and Grill Restaurant for a wonderful and relaxing dining experience. It is located on Northwoods Boulevard in Truckee, so stop on by for some sangria after a cold day on the slopes. Also a specialty, order some buffalo hot wings, tossed in their own sauce and served with blue cheese dressing for dipping! They can be ordered in one or two pound servings. Other specialties are: raspberry and caramelized walnut salad with gorgonzola cheese: Mediterranean pita with humus spread, lettuce, sprout, tomatoes, onion, and vinaigrette on a fresh roll; or traditional pizzas, hot dogs, and hamburgers.

Tahoe Donner also offers a lot of family fun that is quite affordable, with the Snowplay Area located next to Trout Creek Recreation Center. It features a 601 foot vertical drop, and the highest elevation is 7,353 feet. There are approximately 120 acres for skiers to enjoy, with over 13 trails for beginners, intermediate skiers, and expert skiers. The resort features four lifts, with two of the list being surface lifts, and two being chair lifts.
