One of California’s First Ski Resorts Since the first rope tow was built in 1937, Donner Ski Ranch has offered a simpler skiing experience. Located on Historic US Route 40 high atop Donner Summit, you will find an atmosphere that is relaxing and carefree. With 6 chairlifts accessing 505 acres there is a variety of terrain for all abilities. Come and enjoy the short lift lines and uncrowded
    slopes for skiing and snowboarding.

One of California’s Last Family Owned and Operated Ski Resorts For almost 50 years Donner Ski Ranch has been family owned and operated, and many friends and wonderful memories have been made
here. We invite you to become part of the “Donner Ski Ranch Family” that has been returning again and again to enjoy the friendly family atmosphere.
