Offering over 100 kilometers of terrain that is meticulously groomed daily for skier enjoyment, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is the place to be for Nordic fans every winter. Located at the new Alder Creek Adventure Center, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area offers over 50 trails to explore, including cross country trails, snowshoe trails, dog-friendly trails and even fat biking trails for riders. Five warming huts are conveniently located throughout the vast trail system to let skiers and fat bikers warm up as needed. 

With the creation of new Alder Creek Adventure Center, guests are enjoying several upgrades, including streamlined rental services, larger wax rooms and locker rooms, expanded indoor and outdoor seating, a large Nordic retail store, a restaurant and pub with televisions and a fireplace. Additional improvements include new rental equipment, such as a new fleet of Fischer SCS skate skis, classic skis and Salomon pilot combo boots; and new grooming equipment that includes a Ginsu grooming implement, allowing for higher quality, low snow grooming.

Along with upgrades, skiers looking to improve or those new to the sport can also take advantage of several learn to ski lessons and improver clinics offered every season. Learn to ski private or group lessons are available for children and adults, in addition to season long programs just for kids, such as TD Nordic Kids, Midweek Junior Racers and Junior Biathlon. Biathlon is such a popular sport at Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area, additional clinics are offered for both adults and children throughout the season. 

Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is proud to offer some of the finest skiing available in the Truckee and Lake Tahoe region. Frequent ski events are also held throughout the season.
