There are clinics, tournaments, and all kinds of play days. Then there is the beach at Donner Lake. My favorite place to just relax. The Marina had food, water toys to rent, and plenty... More

Private association that allows non-members to use facilities for a fee. The restaurant at the Lodge is a five star, great chef. Great golf course and ski facilities.

Scheduled a ride, but the coordinator put it on the wrong day. I can understand the mistake but absolutely no recovery or options. Person who made the mistake was very busy talking rather than paying attention which likely contributed to the mistake.

I cycle to the top in the morning, then go to the club house in the afternoon or into Truckee. The Lodge... More

We went here and went on a trail ride thru their equestrian center. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the setting is breathtaking. Every staff member that we came in contact with was super! We did a one hour trail ride and enjoyed it so very much!!!!!

I love the smallness, but still good variety of the mountain. I love the locals deals and the ski free with a child deals, otherwise we wouldn't be able to ski up here.
