Tahoe Donner History

Once a 4,020 acre Christmas Tree farm, the land was purchased by Jack Kirby, a professional NFL football player in the late sixties. He envisioned a downhill ski resort and a family-friendly, mountain community.  He wanted to create a ski resort for beginner and intermediate skiers. The downhill ski resort became Tahoe Donner’s first amenity when it launched in 1972.

Named Tahoe Donner, he sold 1/3 acre lots starting at $8,000 in 1971. Prior to opening the golf course and ski area, the community was a huge success, and exceeded $20 million in home site sales. Today, Tahoe Donner has become Northern California’s largest resort community and is known for its outstanding amenities.
