Snowboat at Donner

Our cabin at Donner Lake is called Snowboat because it is a hole in the snow into which one pours money.  It is on the water on the south shore of Donner Lake in Truckee, CA.  Friends old and new are always welcome there. Snowboat hosts awesome ski patrol parties each winter. In the summer, as Pooh Corner, it provides hospitality to Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers during the months of July and August.  The living room is dominated by a big fireplace and an indoor climbing wall.

Winter access is difficult, a walk down a snowy hill of about 300 feet with a vertical drop of 75 feet or so.

Snowboat has one king bed and one queen futon plus two beds by the fireplace.  It has two baths, one with shower and one with a tub.  It has a complete modern kitchen and laundry facilities.  There is a small hot tub on the rear deck.
