Tahoe Donner's inaugural Taste of Truckee on-snow gourmet food and wine event will debut at the Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center March 23. This event is geared for outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike.

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers can work up an appetite by hitting the trails and then indulging in a variety of food samples from local restaurants, along with a selection of delicious wines.

Beginners can rent skis or snowshoes at the Cross Country Ski Center and get a few free pointers from our experienced instructors before heading out on the trail. The tour will take place from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., with après fun taking place until 4:30 p.m. The cost, including trail pass, is $35 for adults and $20 for 18 and under if purchased in advance or $45 for adults and $30 for 18 and under the day of the event (nonalcoholic beverages only for under 21).

Rental equipment is just $5. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling the Cross Country Ski Center at 530-587-9484 or member services at 530-587-9400.

A percentage of proceeds will be donated to the local Tahoe Food Hub and Far West Nordic Ski Education Association.
