SENIOR SKI PROGRAM
Led by veteran instructor Ernie Grey, seniors (ages 55 years and older) learn how to ski easier and more effectively both at Tahoe Donner and at other Tahoe area ski resorts on specified "Ski Away" days.
Climate - Changeable weather conditions are common in the Lake Tahoe Basin throughout the year. Winter storms may occur from September through June, with heavy snow accumulations likely. Many of the ski resorts expect an average of over 450 inches of snow annually and can stay open until June. Sunny, summer skies may cloud over quickly with thundershowers, catching some people by surprise. Weather may also vary or change rapidly from lake-level (6,225 ft) to mountain peaks (10,880 ft).
You'll discover Tahoe Donner in the upper reaches of Truckee. It is within 5 miles of Donner Lake and less than 20 miles from Lake Tahoe.
