Donner Ski Ranch
Perched high atop Donner Summit along historic Route 40, Donner Ski Ranch welcomes skiers of all stripes. More than 50 runs wind across the resort's 505 total acres, with beginner and intermediate terrain taking up the majority of that space. Still, there are plenty of challenges for advanced skiers, including some runs that stretch to 1.5 miles in length. To reach the peaks, visitors can take six chairlifts and two moving carpets that snake up the mountainside. Those lifts are seldom still: the ranch receives an average of 396 inches of snow, and it doesn't close down until that snow either melts or beams back up into the sky.
