I had never done any winter sports and wanted to try both cross-country and snowshoeing. The resort let me do both in the same day, with the rental/lesson/pass package. On weekends, there are several beginner group lessons for cross-country to choose from, and after the...More

This was my first time cross-country skiing in four years. Everyone at Tahoe Donner Cross Country was so welcoming and helpful. The check-in/rental process is very smooth and professional. The rental equipment was ship-shape. The trails are well-groomed and not overly crowded. I took a...More

We rented snowshoes at Ace Hardware (cheaper than at the center) and packed a picnic. It was a good workout with great views. We stopped at the Sundance warming hut for lunch which was perfect.

From beginning to end we had an exceptional cross-country skiing experience here... From initial check-in, efficient equipment rental, outstanding instruction, and most importantly, wonderful trails.

The grooming crew did a great job with little snow to work with. It will be interesting to see how the new lodge presents food and amenities for day skiers. Nice trails with variety and many options for beginner to advanced skiers.
