Donner Summit is very much the gateway to the Sierras, not just because it is the most popular way to travel up here, but because it sets the tone for the rest of the region. Large trees, serene lakes (literally), rivers and creeks, swimming holes, high elevation exploration and year-round activities are just a few of the things people love about the summit. Many people prefer to be close to the amenities off the “hill”, though there are some that prefer a more “back to nature” and tranquil approach to mountain living, those are the ones interested in the summit lifestyle. Donner Summit epitomizes the nostalgia of youth summer camps more than any other location in the area. summertime water activities, bouldering and rock climbing, hiking and biking, creekside picnics and stories around a fire are all things that come to mind when one thinks about the high sierras.
Though this does not mean that Donner Summit lacks the amenities of the lower elevation areas. North America’s largest XC destination can be found at the Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort. Sugar Bowl Resort offers a year-round playground along with the exclusive opportunity for a true ski-in ski-out experience. The one-of-a-kind experience of night skiing at Boreal Mountain California. A multitude of historic points of interest just ready to explore are just a few of the things that Donner Summit has to offer.
People too often pass by Cisco Grove, Kingvale, Serene Lake, Soda Springs and others at freeway speeds on their way to another destination, not realizing the uniqueness and timeless nature of these very special mountain communities.
