What's New This Season at Tahoe Donner

New this year is a brand new intermediate trail called "Leary's Laugh." Tahoe Donner will also be hosting their first-ever Winter Superstars Week. Most children want to be superstars, so children of all ages and skill levels are invited to come out, compete and win medals. Obstacles include ski and snowboard races, a sled pull and a mini terrain park event. Additional popular family events include a torchlight parade, a 200-feet banana split extravaganza and a downhill dummy and rail jam. Those new to skiing (or looking to improve) are also encouraged to take part in Learn to Ski or Snowboard Month in January. Newcomer packages are just $39 and include an all-day lift ticket, rental equipment, and a 1.75 hour group lesson for ages 7 and up.
