Donner Summit

Donner Summit

Location:  Norden CA is west of Truckee, about 8 miles from the center of town.  20 miles from Squaw /  Alpine; 16 miles from Northstar; 53 miles from Heavenly.

Donner summit provides breathtaking mountain peaks, high sierra lakes and rivers to renew the senses and clear the mind. The winter months bring lots of snow so homeowners in this area should appreciate the joy, yet realize the difficulty, of a heavy snow storm!

Subdivisions of Donner Summit include:
Soda Springs
Serene Lakes
Sugar Bowl
Donner Ski Ranch
Cisco Grove
Boreal Ridge

Rainbow Lodge
Rainbow Rd. Off I-80

The Summit
22002 Donner Pass Rd.
Soda Springs, CA

Being at the center of some of the best snow skiing in the Sierra, makes Donner Summit an easy vacation destination less than a half hour from: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch, Tahoe Donner®, Boreal, and Soda Springs; in addition to the above, Royal Gorge and the Donner Memorial State Park have Cross Country and Nordic Ski trails.

For the more adventuresome: hiking in Lakeview Canyon (South side of the Lake) is very popular; take a tour with a Ranger at the State Park; visit the Indian “Petroglyphs” near Rainbow Bridge, or climb a rock near the Summit, there are several climbs from moderate to extremely challanging.
