Snowplay is part of the Tahoe Donner ski area and provides sledding and tubing down groomed trails. It can be pricey- maybe $70+ for parents and two small kids. What we got was a marvelous staff, long lines, a fairly boring tubing course with a steep walk back up the hill with your kids and the tubes, and a sledding... More

Whether you are an experienced cross country (stride or skate) skier or new to the sport, you will not find a better all around facility in the country. The center has everything for the family, cafe, bar, outdoor fire pits and access to over 100 kilometers of professionally groomed trails. You can get all your equipment there, Skate or Classic...

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

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
