Donner Ski Ranch has to be one of the most relaxed, old school type ski areas I've been to in a while. Everyone was friendly, fellow skiers included. Hot dogs and beers were sold for a dollar at the midway unloading station! The powder was awesome and the trails were great fun.
Family owned and operated Ski Resorts are uncommon but Donner Ski Ranch is just that and has been for over fifty years. 52 trails that go up to 1.5 miles long are serviced by 6 chair lifts. The 505 acres is a mixture for all skill levels and they also have a tubing section for a change of pace in the fun.
