Donner Lake Ski House Share
We are looking for friendly skiers & boarders to join our 4 bed, 3 bath House Ski Lease across from Donner Lake. This is a big house with 11 beds. We aim for a total of 15 members and currently have 10 spots open. We are professionals in our 30s and 40s from SF and the Bay Area, with a small Sac contingent. Most of our members are weekend warriors, with 2 or 3 skiing midweek last year. We’ll ski Squaw, Alpine, Sugar Bowl and Northstar this season. This is a great opportunity for those whose season passes have blackout dates. The Ski Lease runs December 14-21 and then starts again on January 2 through April 30. We have blackout dates for long weekends of MLK and President’s Day.
$1150 for a single; $1950 for a couple (sharing same Double or Queen bed). Families – for a price. If we have at least 4 people interested, we will again offer midweek only rates at a discount.
Typical of ski houses, we tend to relax at home in the evenings, cooking dinner together, enjoying a glass or wine, sitting around the fire, playing board games and/or watching movies. We have had kids at the house on occasion in years past.
Blarney, our dog, will be up when we are. He is friendly and hypoallergenic (non-shedding) and will try to convince anyone who will listen that I forgot to feed him (I didn’t). Other well-behaved, friendly dogs may be welcome – we’ll see if there are any objections from new members.
The house is across from Donner Lake’s West End Beach on South Shore so we are typically plowed out early. It is 3 miles to Highway 80 and downtown Truckee is 4 miles.
Upstairs Room 1 (Tito’s Rom): queen, 2 twins and a double futon. We typically stay in this room when we are up and singles can make use of the twin beds in the room as it is large and somewhat divided.
Upstairs Room 2: queen, 1 twin
There is one full bathroom upstairs.
Downstairs Bunk Room: Twin bunk beds, double. Bathroom immediately adjacent.
Downstairs Room with En suite bathroom: Queen bed, twin bed.
Fully equipped kitchen.
Living room has a beautiful stone fireplace with 65” flat screen.
Wifi. We don’t have cable but Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are on the living room TV.
Green Egg grill/smoker and Gas Grill.
Large flat driveway. Parking for up to 7 cars. Snow removal of the driveway included.
+ View photos.
We use a Google calendar for scheduling. Singles will first fill the Bunk Room and Upstairs Room 2 first, but couples are not guaranteed private rooms beyond that. If all of the beds are spoken for, members can stay in the living room on the sofa or in front of the fireplace.
Bring your own towels and linens or use ours and launder them before departing.
We will have the house cleaned 3x during the season.
Members and Guests are all expected to spend about 10 minutes before departing helping out with small tasks, such as taking out the trash, unloading the dishwasher, etc.
Guest fees will be $25 per night midweek and $40 on weekends.
All members pay a refundable $250 security deposit. Utility charges will be deducted from the deposits.
