What's New This Season at Tahoe Donner

This year is an Olympic year and Tahoe Donner will be offering special events to celebrate and for guests to experience a taste of the Olympics at Tahoe Donner. New for the 2013-2014 winter season, the installation of a 700-square-foot yurt will provide a warming area during lessons and also offer a convenient slopeside gathering space that is separated from the general public. The sundeck at the lodge has also been newly resurfaced. Tahoe Donner continually offers some of the best groomed terrain in the region and in keeping up with this standard, Tahoe Donner added a new snow groomer to the fleet last season.
