With a 2,000-foot vertical rise, the 10-minute ride on Squaw’s Aerial Tram is always a rush – from sun-up to sun-down and long after the lifts close. On the way up, you will cross over their iconic Tram Face that has been filmed and shown all over the globe with some of the world’s top extreme skiers leaping off its craggy peaks.
At the top, the jaw-dropping views of the Valley below are just part of the romantic sights that can be found outside of the tram and within their dining areas.

With over 100 km of snowshoe and cross country ski trails, Tahoe Donner Cross Country offers one of the West’s finer locations for outdoor adventure. In fact, USA TODAY voted this resort as one of the ‘top three’ in the entire country and for three years in a row was selected as the “Best Cross-Country Center in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee,” by the SIERRA SUN. In addition to its vast system of trails that encompass 2,800 acres, the views are just as impressive with trails that wander through the forest and far-stretching meadows. And, there are 7K of trails deemed “dog-friendly” so be sure to pack a picnic and bring your favorite pup! All the equipment you need for snowshoeing (and XC) are right on site.
