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.
