                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Gayle and son out for a sunny day of riding at Mammoth.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Donner:
                  The reason we chose this location is I love how close everything is! I lived in the Eastern Sierra for eight years and I am not crazy about driving around during snow storms. I looked at property closer to Lake Tahoe, but when I thought about all the extra driving and traffic, I decided I would rather spend less time on the road. I love the amenities at Tahoe Donner. Donner Lake is gorgeous and only a five-minute drive from our home. And a big plus is how many ski resorts are easier to get to without having the nightmare of driving around Lake Tahoe just to get to a resort. Truckee is charming and has lots of restaurants and I also like how close the market is to our house.
