EVENT: Tahoe Donner Cross Country to Host 20th Annual Winter Trails Day

Returning this year to Tahoe Donner is Winter Trails Day, a national event co-hosted by Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area and REI.

Occurring annually now for twenty years, Winter Trails Day is a chance for those new to snowsports to try cross country skiing and snowshoeing for free on Jan. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area. In order to participate in the event, advance registration is required through REI Sacramento at: Space is limited to 350 people; Tahoe Donner staff expects the event to sell out quickly. 

“We recognize that many folks have never tried cross country skiing and snowshoeing,” said Tahoe Donner Cross Country Manager Sally Jones. “Winter Trails Day is a chance for people to give it a try and receive helpful tips while having fun and enjoying some outdoor exercise.”

Winter Trials Day helps newcomers and seasoned winter sports enthusiasts discover the great fitness benefits of cross country skiing and snowshoeing; the event includes equipment demonstrations, mini snowshoe and cross country ski lessons, live music and food. While the event is free to those who register, a $5 donation is encouraged as part of a fundraiser to benefit the Truckee High School Nordic Ski Team. In 2013, Winter Trails Day raised $2,000 for the team.

Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area is located at 15275 Alder Creek Road, Truckee, CA. For more information on Winter Trails Day and Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Area, visit
