We did all snow activities in the snow park. Kids and elders enjoyed. Restrooms in the snow park are pathetic. There was only one for the whole park and that was broken after awhile too. Except that, snow tubing, sledding, skiing and other snow activities were great!!

This resort has ski and snowboard trails for people of all levels. There are advanced levels and beginner levels. The lodge is a little too expensive though. A corn dog is 5 dollars!

Went to the Lodge for dinner. We had about 30 people and they knew we were coming. All but one of the 5 tables got their dinner in a decent amt of time, but everyone was done when we got our dinner. Food was expensive, except for the "Share Plates", which are actually their less expensive dinners. There was an... More

Tahoe Donner is the best ski resort for beginner and family. pretty much all ski trails are very wide and well groomed, slopes just fit for beginners.

What a great place to spend some time. I have been going to Tahoe Donner since the 70's. The tennis facilities and organizational programs are terrific. 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.

Have traveled all over the world but I keep coming back and renting houses in Tahoe Donner twice a year. Summer and winter are so different. This last visit was summer and there is so much to do. I cycle to the top in the morning, then go to the club house in the afternoon or into Truckee. The Lodge... More
