Keep your expectations low and especially for food selection& quality.. The only Plus is..it is closer than Tahoe Donner XC.

One of the most extensive nordic trail systems is back and creating the magic of endless cross-country skiing opportunities. Some of the most memorable trail systems all linked together and viewpoints that are sure to make you pull out your camera. It is a treat to ski here and each time feels like I cannot cover enough terrain.

Largest cross country ski resort in North America. Truly breath taking. Has the authenticity of true Tahoe, in that it is low key, but boasts amazing views and trails. I have been several times, and have never had a bad trail.

It was summer so no skiing, It is but it is back in the woods so nice and scenic. It was an exploratory trip for the upcoming winter.

My friend and I took an introductory cross country lesson. We had taken one other lesson on this trip. It was my second time on skis of any kind and I felt so much improved with another lesson. The instructor was knowledgeable, patient and friendly. The lesson was well worth the extra money. Once you pay for the rental and... More

It is great to see that Royal Gorge is now being managed well and that it still exists. I have been cross country skiing here for over 20 years and love the huge area to ski. Yesterday I skied on trails that I had never yet traversed. After a great three hour ski it is enjoyable to hang out in... More

World class trails and so much to ski and see. It will take you days to cover all the trails. Food in the lodge is great. The ski area is actually owned by the Truckee Donner Land Trust after raising more than $10M to buy it out of bankruptcy. Previous 2 owners ran it into the ground. Sugar Bowl is... More
