Ski Resort directions

Donner ski ranch is located 40 miles from Reno, Nevada, and 10 miles west of Truckee, California. Take I-80 to the Soda Springs/Norden exit, then go 3.5 miles on old Highway 40 to the resort. Note: Carry chains, as Highway 40 is a two lane road where snow storms can change conditions very quickly.
