Tahoe Donner Area Information

I am very excited to represent a beautiful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in Tahoe Donner. You can find information about this listing at the bottom of this article, but I wanted to focus this month’s blog post on what it is like to live in Tahoe Donner.  Listings in this neighborhood are highly sought after because Tahoe Donner is an amazing place to live!

Tahoe Donner is a vibrant community and truly one of Lake Tahoe’s treasures located in the hills above Truckee, and just minutes to the freeway. When compared to the other communities as Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Donner is known for its charming, yet modern architectural styles, and a list of amenities that cannot be found elsewhere.

Tahoe Donner Homeowner's Association

The Tahoe Donner Homeowner’s Association serves 6,500 properties and 25,000 member who have access to 7,300 acres expanding across the Sierra Nevada mountains. The community consists of many locals and second homeowners and it offers numerous hiking and cross country trails adjacent to the neighborhood. The Tahoe Donner Homeowner’s Association operates a wide variety of recreational facilities including:

Downhill Skiing

The Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Resort is known for its family style affordable ski experience that is perfect for beginners. They offer ski instruction for kids as young as 3 with a kid-friendly menu at the cafeteria. Enjoy the wide-open terrain and uncrowded slopes. Beginners will enjoy their ‘magic carpet’ that takes you up a gentle slope instead of a chairlift. Because this is a small, local resort, you will enjoy access to lessons and hands on care that cannot be found at other ski resorts.

Trout Creek Rec Center

The Trout Creek Rec Center has been completely renovated. Take fitness or swim classes, use the cardio and weight room, steam room or dry sauna. They have a fitness pool, a recreation pool, and a lap pool. The Rec Center also has a kid’s club with activities. Whether you like to work out on your own, take spin classes, pilates or yoga, there is something for everyone.  They also offer personal trainers and massages.

X Country Ski Center

USA Today recognized the X Country Ski Center at Tahoe Donner as # 6 in North America. The Sierra Sun voted it as the “Best Cross Country Center in North Lake Tahoe & Truckee.” The Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center allows you to explore more than 2,800 acres in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. The 100km+ of cross country ski and snowshoe trails meander through tranquil meadows and forests, follow babbling creeks and climb to stunning views of the Sierra Crest. Whether you enjoy classic cross country skiing or skate skiing, you will find variations in terrain that are perfect for all levels. If you have a dog, you will love the 7km of the trails that are designated as dog friendly!

Alder Creek Adventure Center

Enjoy dining at the Alder Creek Café with drinks at the Trailside Bar. Year round, homeowners can explore the many activities and entertainment. Season activities include horseback riding at the Equestrian Center, mountain biking, cross country skiing and showshoeing. The Cross Country Ski Center also launches you into over 60 miles of hiking or biking trails.

In addition to breakfast and lunch, you can grab apres ski evening cocktails and eclectic food. Enjoy microbrews and wines by the glass at the Trailside Bar.
